bedside computer charting

  1. In a few months we will be moving to a new hospital with the
    computers we use to chart on at the bedside in 4 of our ICU
    rooms, we are apprehensive about this and have many concerns
    including being stuck in room charting making us less aware of
    what is happening on the rest of the unit we usually have from
    2-4 patients sometimes 5. In this situation there will be no one
    watching the monitors most of the shift and we will have to rely
    on alarms and recall. We will also be unable to monitor traffic
    in the unit and this can be a problem since we are open to visitors
    Does anyone have any experience with this and how does it
    work for you?
