LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A lullaby chime is what patients and health care workers hear every time a baby is born at Dignity Health local hospitals.

Staff says it doesn't just signify a new baby it can also mean a new mom and the chime can be heard in every corner of the hospital.

The lullaby is triggered by pressing a special button on the wall near the nurse's station. It is guarded by a big orange elephant.

The tradition has been in practice since San Martin Hospital opened in 2006 and at St. Rose Siena Hospital.
