For new parents, the first few days of their baby’s life can be exciting but also nerve wracking, particularly when the infant is born prematurely and requires special care in the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit. Beginning this week, thanks to live web-cam technology at Logan Regional Hospital, parents are able to watch their baby in the NICU remotely 24 hours a day via a password-protected website. Director of Communications Doug Thompson says all 17 beds at Logan regional have been outlined with the necessary web-cam equipment. “What’s exciting about that,” Thompson explained, “is that now moms and dads can have the control and turn on a camera to be able to show their baby to their own kids at home. Or grandma and grandpa can watch the babies around the world and see how they’re doing.” On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Friday, Thompson said parents are given access to the NICU website along with a password that allows them to see only their baby.
