For the hospital

My passion for the Sensium Vitals system is driven by the irrefutable patient safety benefits it offers. Experience elsewhere shows that 100% side room hospital designs can be associated with higher patient risk, particularly if the nursing and other staff presence isn't enhanced to compensate for this.
I believe that Sensium Vitals can bring safety to this environment in a cost-effective way. With Sensium Vitals installed, the New Royal can be the safest hospital in the UK in which patients can enjoy privacy and safety together.

We at the West Middlesex are excited to be involved with the development of this cutting edge technology and believe that if applied successfully it will improve our patient safety, patient experience and quality of care. 
We are enjoying working in partnership with Sensium and look forward to seeing the outcomes of this quality improvement project.

This could certainly have a use in the emergency department and from the emergency care phase right through the first couple of days in hospital when the patient is much more liable to deteriorate.

Tim Coats

We have picked up episodes where the patient has begun to become unwell that we otherwise wouldn’t have done at such an early stage with standard intermittent monitoring.

David Jayne
Professor of Surgery, The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

I believe that Sensium Vitals has enabled us to improve the safety of our patients, as the continuous monitoring notifies staff of changes/deterioration in their vital signs. 
The notifications in vital signs alert the nurses to check their patients, allowing earlier interventions to be made, therefore preventing potential deterioration. I consider this supplementary monitoring an enhancement to patient safety and enriches the patient’s journey.

Ward manager, Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital

The patches help staff focus their efforts on the patients who needed the most support, It prioritises you.
Nothing will ever replace complete clinical observation and the assessment of the patients. What this does is alert you sooner, so you can fulfil those observations and assessments of the patient and activate the appropriate care and treatment for them.
