The South Georgia Medical Center is keeping families and new babies connected in the time of COVID, even when they are physically apart.
The system is called AngelEye and at its heart is a 24/7 camera keeping a watchful eye over babies in the hospital. Parents can tune in at any time to see their little one in a secure app which also includes a way for doctors and nurses to text updates, record video, and take pictures. This can be a godsend for parents who live far away from the hospital, or for siblings and grandparents unable to visit the baby because of COVID restrictions. Plus, parents don’t need to wait to get to the hospital to receive daily updates on their baby. For parents who cannot physically be with their babies due to health reasons, AngelEye offers them a feeling of connection.
“This is especially beneficial for parents with babies in the NICU [neonatal intensive care unit]. Leaving a newborn at the hospital can be very challenging for working parents and remote families,” hospital officials said, according to the Valdosta Daily Times. “Virtual care technology can make a big difference in allowing parents 24/7 access to their newborn ensuring more effective collaboration between care teams and families.”
“Parents tell us that this is the next best thing to being there and really reduces anxiety as they can check in whenever they want,” said Peggy Knight, RN, the hospital’s director of women’s and infants services.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
