If you know Welch Allyn, then you know Hillrom. 

A 360º Solution for Vital Signs on General Medical Wards



  • 40% of patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) never receive active intensive care1
  • Patients are being moved earlier from the ICU and intermediate care units to the General Medical Wards
  • General Medical Wards have higher patient-to-nurse ratios and reduced patient visibility
  • ICU re-admissions often result in twice the average hospital length of stay and an increase in mortality rate of up to 10%2

Shouldn’t clinicians on general medical wards have the right technology to help identify patient deterioration earlier?
