Abstract:
Poster Presentation: The newborn center (NICU 2 and NICU 3) at our institution admits over 1500 critical infants every year. We realize the joy that comes with the birth of a new baby can quickly turn into anxiety and fear when complications arise that necessitates transfer to a higher level of care at another facility. Because our hospital provides specialty care services to many community hospitals locally and nation wide, we recognized the need to establish community partnerships that would facilitate remote bonding between families and infants transferred to our facility. Our pediatric hospital strives to exceed personal service goals as well as provide family centered care. By providing virtual visits to families using video conferencing technology we envisioned a way to accomplish these very important goals. Through the financial commitment and Administrative support of the involved hospitals, equipment was purchased giving momentum for the launch of this new program. Our creative team included Neonatology, Administrative personnel, telehealth medicine, IT/IS, and nursing leadership from our hospital as well as our piloted partner hospital. Together we created the "Family Vision" process, also known as Neonatal I See You (NICU). When a family desires to visit with their baby, nurses collaborate from both facilities to schedule and initiate a virtual visit. At the time of the actual visit a monitor equipped with speakers and a camera is wheeled to the bedside at both locations. Since this is a live and interactive visit the family is able to view their baby while communicating directly to infants caregivers, thus creating an intimate atmosphere promoting family bonding. We began with a pilot in the fall of 2005 with one of our partner hospitals and have since expanded to another partner hospital, thus providing meaningful family visits today.
