To better accommodate parents with babies in the Intensive Care Nursery (ICN), Doylestown Health's VIA Maternity Center now offers the Angel Eye Camera system, a secure, Internet-based video solution where cameras are placed at the baby's bedside in the ICN, and then a live feed is made available to family and loved ones.
Parents with babies in the ICN will receive their child's camera login information from their care team that can be shared with family and friends. The parents will serve as the central account manager, and can manage their family members' and friends' accounts.
This program was designed so that parents and other family members who can't be at the ICN can still bond with their baby by logging into a secure account from their laptop, tablet or smart phone. For many families, these cameras help promote bonding between parents and their premature babies, who sometimes have to stay in the hospital for weeks or months.
This service is made possible through generous contributions to the Doylestown Health Foundation, including support from The Superhero Project, a non-profit organization that strives to aid and encourage families in the NICU and to provide assistance and resources to hospitals throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
