Freeman Health System's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU, has some new technology to help parents bond with a child that's in the unit. Freeman CEO Paula Baker tells News Talk KZRG it's called Angel Eye.
"Angel Eye is a web-based camera system that lets parents remotely see their child. Let's say that you have a child in the NICU, but you have to go to work, then you can log in and remotely see your child. It's really hard to leave your baby in the hospital, so if you can see your baby and talk to your baby, then that really helps ease the pain of separation."
Baker says parents can also give access to as many as 20 loved ones to watch the child. Angel Eye was donated by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through Walmart and Sam's Club.
