Palmetto Health Richland Hospital in Columbia, S.C., has installed a remote, wireless patient monitoring and alerting system from Masimo Corp., Irvine, Calif.

The Patient SafetyNet system non-invasively and continuously monitors multiple physiological measurements for up to 80 patients from a central location, according to the vendor. This facilitates earlier detection of abnormalities and intervention.

The system also sends to assigned clinicians specific physiological data demonstrating a patient is in distress. More information is available at
