Abstract

Over the past ten years, web-cameras often have been used in the NICU to support parents and connect families with their hospitalized neonate. This article describes the history of images and video use in the NICU to aid in linking parents and then focuses on the challenges and lessons learned through redesign, installation, and management of a new web-camera system. Technology can support NICU families, and when implemented with input from nurses and families, the process can be a positive experience.
