Barcelona Hospital Installs Skype Phones

 

Vall d'Hebron Hospital in Barcelona, in the West of the city, has shown some forward thinking behaviour and installed two Skype video phones in their maternity and paediatrics wards, the first hospital to do so in Spain.

A spokesperson for the hospital explained that the new technology has been introduced to benefit children hospitalised for long periods of time, as well as "immigrant mothers who want to show their newborns to family and friends of their country."

The two video phones are installed in separate rooms in the maternity and pediatric wards and are available to all patients.
