Anyone have any suggestions on a technology that has made an impact on your nursing practice in the last 2 to 3 years? I'm currently working on a research project focused on technology and nursing practice. Any suggestions, big or small, would be very much appreciated!

Computerized charting, pyxis or omnicell systems for medication distributation, tubing systems for sending labs and receiving medications from pharmacy. I know some of these have been around a long time but some hospitals are just beginning to use them and it does save a lot of nursing time. I also love the new beds that have built in scales, can turn into a chair position, rotate and percuss the patients, softer mattresses for those with potential for skin breakdown.
