r 'someone to fix the problem.' It clearly spotlights their commitment to their members," said Dr. Patrick Sullivan, president of Hawai'i-based Hoana Medical, Inc.

The complexity of healthcare and hospitals make weighing-in with a solution a daunting task. However, most hospitals universally agree that the simple act of finding a patient in trouble early is enormously helpful, both from a patient outcome standpoint, as well as all the economics of healthcare. The LifeBed delivers a very sophisticated and complex technology in a simple and elegant form -- simplicity in a complex chaotic sea.

Currently, there is a shortage of approximately 126,000 nurses nationwide, which is expected to increase to 808,000 by the year 2020(2).

By 2020, that number is expected to increase to 2,669 FTE nurses or a 24 percent shortfall(3).

A recent study on nurse-patient ratios showed that " ... each additional patient per nurse (above 4) is associated with a 7 percent increase in both patient mortality and deaths following complications."
