Star Trek meets the Nursing Station

  1. We ran this story today on our web site. It profiles a new badge which professionals such as nurses will be wearing to gain instant contact with doctors and others.

    For conspiracy freaks, there is no "tracking" function included.

    And I quote:
    Taking a page from Star Trek, new communications devices that may be worn by RNs are making their debut. For example, after pressing the badge's call button, a nurse can say, "Call Dr. Greene," and the system will immediately open a full- duplex voice channel to Dr. Greene's badge. Or if Dr. Greene is not in his office, it will forward the call to his specified office or cellular phone.

    Geez! I didn't expect that post to bring out the Trekkies!

    We need Star Trek avatars -- perhaps a tribble or two (or three, or thousand).

    Yeah, it was the best -- and as I remember the episode won several television awards for the series.

    Have you seen the DS9 episode where they revisit "The Trouble with Tribbles?" They employ special effects to place the recent characters among the old seamlessly.

    Thanks for the web site Shygirl. I KNEW there had to be more tribble info out there -- even if they speak German!
