Hi all! I work in the CCU/CVICU and the facility I work for just recently implemented an eICU. For those unfamiliar with this-There is a camera in every ICU pt room and a monitor that the eICU nurse shows up on. The camera does not record, it just allows the docs and RNs do to a scan of the room and come in when needed (there is a button we can press). They monitor trends, make phone calls, and will even keep an eye on our pts if there is a code. They do much, much more, but it would take too long to describe it!
I was just wondering what others' experiences were with an eICU and how you may feel about it.
