Healthier Me: Sanford Health Adds Webcams to NICU

Posted: Updated:

Sanford Health in Fargo just added five webcams to its neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).  

NICU staff say it helps parents stay connected with their babies, when they are forced to stay in the hospital after mom is discharged.

Parents often need to go back to work, while their babies have to stay in the hospital for weeks or even months before they are healthy enough to go home.

Michael Kehoe/New father: "Technology has really come a long way. It's amazing to be able to see your son and know he's alright. It's really helpful... It helps me to relax."

NICU nurses say it's a very important tool in helping parents bond with their babies.
