Angel Eye View System

Angel Eye View System


While most pregnancies end with a healthy baby, about 10% of neonates require special care in the NICU, which can cause high levels of anxiety for their families. The Angel Eye system allows families the ability to see their infants, receive updates, and view educational materials on any device with internet. This technology gives families 24/7 access to view their babies in the NICU to allow families to feel like an integral part of their baby’s care team.

Thanks to a grant from Morton Plant Mease Health Care Foundation, Morton Plant Hospital and Mease Countryside Hospital are equipped with the Angel Eye View System.

Angel Eye View System for Morton Plant and Mease Countryside Hospital

For parents, holding their baby for the very first time is one of life’s most amazing gifts. But when newborns make an unexpected early appearance those precious first moments can often be brief and tense, leaving parents feeling lost, anxious, and overwhelmed as their child is whisked away to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to receive the expert care they will need to survive.

Our hospitals' family-centered approach means parents can stay overnight in private rooms with comfortable beds and full bathrooms and visit any time they want 24/7. And to help promote critical bonding experiences, we encourage as much parental involvement as possible through temperature checks, diaper changes, and feeding.

However, while every parent wants to be at their baby’s bedside all the time, not everyone has that luxury. The reality is that parents can’t always be in the NICU with their child. Perhaps there are other children at home who must be cared for or a need to return to work. Sometimes new moms might be recovering from a C-section or other childbirth complications and can’t be in the same room as their baby. No matter the reason, the choice to leave their little one’s bedside is never easy.

Witnessing the distress this caused our NICU parents, our medical team set out to find a solution: their research led to the AngelEye NICU CameraSystem. If parents can video chat with their kids away at college, why not have them check in with their newborns in much the same way?

This state-of-the-art system brings live-streaming video of their little one to family members anywhere, anytime, on any device. In addition, a one-way PatientConnect feature allows care teams to easily share patient status and memorable moments with real-time texts, pictures, and recorded videos, giving families a view into the treatment plan and progress their baby is making even when they can’t be there physically. The result? Use of the AngelEye system has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety for parents and support bonding when family members cannot be at the hospital – a virtual human touch to help them regain some sense of control.
