Question normal

Timely communication between providers is vital, especially in the critical care setting. Changes in examination, questions about current management of critically ill patients require direct communication by all members of the care team almost constantly throughout the day. With the use of smart glasses, nurses and physicians would have the ability to provide efficient care to any patient throughout the hospital without the physician having to leave the bedside of one critical patient to see another. Using technology to efficiently relay information could lead to better patient outcomes, while improving patient flow. In addition, smart glasses would be given to our Rapid Response Team, teamed by critical care nurses who respond to unstable patients that may need transfer to higher level of care, i.e Code Blue or Stroke. Smart glasses allow the nurses to evaluate the patient in real time with the physician's guidance, to better evaluate the patient in any area of the hospital.
