The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) beds at UC Davis Children’s Hospital in Sacramento are equipped with webcams, according to an article on the Campus Safety website.

The cameras will allow families to see their baby from a computer, tablet, or cell phone when they can’t be at the hospital.

Webcams and flexible tripods are mounted on the infant incubators, warmers and cribs in all 49 NICU beds.

Hospital officials have been working to expand the program to all beds and were able to do so after finding a more affordable product.
