The first moments of a baby’s life are filled with joy.
Yet, in those instances when a newborn requires extra care in the NICU, it can also be a time of great anxiety for parents and one of intensity for caregivers.
The NICF are committed to making the path toward sending babies home as safe, comfortable and as quickly as possible through advanced technology. One piece of advanced technology needed is the very flexible Omnibed care station. In fact, we need to get two. Designed with babies and their families in mind, these care stations create a controlled, protected microenvironment for peaceful fast healing, bringing babies one step closer to the caregivers’ expertise, their parents’ embrace, and to going home healthy. From delivery to discharge, these humidicribs are designed to address the changing and complex demands of the NICU by helping to provide easy access to the baby by clinical staff and enable family-centred care to help the neuro development of the baby.
When it comes to a baby’s growth and development, parental touch—and peace-of-mind can make all the difference. These care stations support Family Centred Care and give parents the access and assurance they need to nurture their sick or premature baby. Babies are our future, and we’ll do everything to be sure we’re helping them thrive from day one. It seems so simple, but means so much. Please help us give caregivers and parents a better opportunity to help babies grow, develop and go home healthy.
