Moms, dads and other family members with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Mississippi Baptist Medical Center (MBMC) now have the flexibility to see their newborns from anywhere.
MBMC recently started offering 24/7 live feeds from its NICU. ABC 16 WAPT in Jackson, Mississippi covered the story: New technology allows families to see tiniest Baptist patients.
Families with babies in the NICU have a virtual window into their baby’s bed through the secure, password-protected live feed, which can be viewed from anywhere in the world. Each of the 12 NICU beds has its own camera, and family members receive their own unique login and password to view the feed from their baby’s bed.
The NICVIEW 2 web cameras were donated by Baptist Health Foundation, which raises funds to support MBMC in Jackson and Baptist’s critical access hospitals in Leake, Attala and Yazoo counties in Mississippi.
MBMC joins Baptist Women’s Hospital as the only Baptist hospitals to feature the NICVIEW 2 web camera system. “We are excited to offer the NICU families this tool to help them feel more connected to their babies,” said Bobbie Ware, CEO and administrator at MBMC.
