The Connected Hospital with iBed technology integrates caregivers and systems throughout the hospital, enabling improvements in the quality of care while increasing staff efficiencies. The iBed Awareness option is a fully customizable bed status indicator. With the touch of a button, iBed Awareness allows a caregiver to set a bed in a certain status according to specific patient care needs. If the status changes in any way, the bed alerts the caregiver either visually, audibly and through the nurse call system depending on configuration.
