Webcams at Cape Coral Hospital allow parents to see their kids around the clock
New technology at a hospital in Cape Coral now allows parents to watch their child in real-time—around the clock.
Parents of premature babies separated at birth can now reconnect to their little ones thanks to newly developed technology called Nicview.
“We have not had one family that say they didn’t want to use it,” said Nancy Travis, director of women and neonatal services at Cape Coral Hospital.
The webcam device allows parents to watch their baby in real time from any internet device.
A baby named Landon, born last week, is still in intensive care. But his parents, Adam and Tiffany Chobrda, can check up on him with just the click of a button. They say it’s been a great tool when they can’t physically be there with him.
The service is free for parents and even relatives who live far away.
The webcams were donated by volunteers at Cape Coral Hospital. Lee Health is planning to expand the new technology to Golisano Children’s Hospital.
