Telenursery meets over interactive video three times a week for brief census rounds. These rounds include neonatology and subspecialty consultations, coordination of transports and back transports, follow up on neonatal and material transports, collaboration and education.
Telenursery sites, identified on the map below, also have the ability to connect a postpartum mother with her neonate that may have been transported to Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The mother typically remains hospitalized for 24 hours or more at UAMS or her distant hospital. Telemedicine technology enables mothers and babies to stay connected while receiving necessary health care.
For any problems with connectivity, call 501-686-8666.
If you have questions or an interest in being a part of Telenursery, please email Shannon Lewis RN.
