Having a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) can be difficult on the entire family. Parents, siblings and relatives around the world want to feel connected to their newborn family member. Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children (RMHC) is making this possible with NICView, a state-of-the-art new camera system that gives families the opportunity to watch their baby in real time.
The NICView cameras are accessed through a simple, secure username and password provided by RMHC staff. The system is designed to help families bond with their NICU baby, even when they cannot be at their bedside, and help reduce parents’ anxiety between visits.
