Now, a woman’s obstetrician is as close as a smartphone.
During labor, mothers-to-be often worry whether their doctor is nearby in case complications develop. Now, thanks to unique technology available at Norton Suburban Hospital and Norton Hospital, a woman’s obstetrician is as close as a smartphone.
It’s called “Airstrip OB,” and Norton Healthcare is the first and only health care provider in Kentucky to offer it. Get Healthy’s Jackie Hays talks with Norton Healthcare obstetrician/gynecologist C. Reed Nett, M.D., about the program and how it is helping women in labor, nurses and physicians.
