The Gentle Jingling of an Emergency

I've noticed that when things go wrong with micro-preemies in the NICU, a warm red light flashes, accompanied by a lyrical siren that sounds like a xylophone.  It's as though a gentle, motherly voice is whispering a peculiar lullaby into one's ear:  "Your baby is hurt.  Your baby is hurt."
