You Are Vital Pediatrics: Equipment
The NICU and PICU units at VGH require 40 new pieces of patient monitoring equipment. Every single patient requires vital signs monitoring equipment for diagnosis and treatment and the monitors provide critically important information for our caregivers.
Patient Monitoring Systems for the NICU and PICU at Victoria General Hospital
Significant upgrades are needed for the Patient Monitoring System for Victoria General Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). The system upgrade will transform bedside care, allowing greater integration for improved transmission of vital, possibly life-saving information to clinicians, who can be alerted to a patient’s condition throughout the unit. Improved reliability and virtualisation are additional benefits of the upgrade.
The equipment has capabilities that alert our caregivers of any changes or trends in a patient’s symptoms so that they may intervene more quickly. It enables immediate, informed action by caregivers. Much like any technology, hospital equipment changes quickly.
Ensuring our caregivers have tools of the highest quality means our Vancouver Island patients can continue to receive excellent care.
Our most critically ill patients will benefit from improved monitoring equipment and an integrated communication system.
Clinicians at our hospitals need the best possible equipment in order to provide the highest standard of care for the tens of
thousands of patients who have need of these hospitals every year.
