MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - University Healthcare Berkeley Medical Center has installed a video system that allows new parents and family members to check in on their infants in the neonatal intensive care unit anytime and from anywhere.

A camera mounted bedside captures a live, password-protected video stream of the newborn. Parents may choose whether or not they want to use the system and have exclusive control over the password, which they may share with friends or family members.

Although the video stream can be accessed around the clock, nurses can turn off the camera when giving care to the baby.
