Trinity Medical Center now has more technology to keep the community safe.  Monday, the hospital announced the installation of Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ to support clinicians in their work to monitor special patient conditions. The new technology tracks the underlying physiological conditions of specific, high-risk patients and detects changes and abnormalities that signal declining health status in real time.

Trinity says when the patient's condition deteriorates, the system automatically sends wireless alerts directly to clinicians - prompting a potentially lifesaving response to the patient's bedside. The system consists of pulse oximetry, patient-tolerant and easy-to-use ventilation monitoring, and remote monitoring and notification to keep clinicians connected to patients. 

"Incorporating new technologies plays a key role in nurturing our culture of patient safety," said Keith Granger, President and CEO of Trinity Medical Center.  "Our clinicians are finding this equipment to be a valuable tool as we work to continue to improve patient care."
