Parents of premature babies who have a long stay in the hospital, usually can't see their child as much as they would like.
At Washington Regional Medical Center, parents can stay with their baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit all day, everyday. At some point, parents have to go back to work or take care of other kids.
WRMC has the Angel Eye System that allows parents to watch a live video stream of their baby in the NICU on a phone, tablet or computer. A small camera is attached to each bed in the NICU and parents are given a login for their child's angel camera. This login information can be shared with whoever the parents choose, so family and friends near or far can see the baby, too.
