Grant Cuesta Sub-Acute and Pathways Home Health & Hospice Use VGo Robot to Monitor Patients
Date:10/23/2013

Sunnyvale, California (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

Grant Cuesta Sub-Acute and Rehabilitation Center and Pathways Home Health & Hospice recently installed the VGo robotic two-way communication technology to expand the reach of care for hospice patients. Grant Cuesta Sub-Acute and Pathways Hospice work closely to care for shared patients living at Grant Cuesta. If a patient’s health status changes, often a consultation with a hospice doctor is needed. The VGo robotic two-way telepresence, driven remotely by a Pathways Hospice doctor via computer, enables the facility’s staff to have an instant, real-time consultation.

El Camino Hospital was instrumental in assisting Pathways Home Health & Hospice and Grant Cuesta Sub-Acute and Rehabilitation Center with the acquisition and initial operation of the VGo robot. The VGo robotic technology has been in use at El Camino Hospital for over a year. Pathways Home Health & Hospice is an affiliate of El Camino Hospital and Grant Cuesta is a member of the Covenant Care Nursing Facilities family.

Grant Cuesta Sub-Acute provides comprehensive rehabilitation and nursing care for patients with complex medical needs,” said Heidi Stone, Area Marketing Manager, Grant Cuesta Sub-Acute and Rehabilitation Center. “The VGo telepresence robot is yet another way for us to monitor and provide timely care for the hospice patients we share with Pathways Home Health & Hospice.”

Pathways is very enthusiastic about partnering with Grant Cuesta on the use of the VGo robot at their facility,” said Georgia Rock, COO, Pathways Home Health & Hospice. “The VGo technology works as a two-way camera, and will allow our doctors to consult with the nursing staff at Grant Cuesta immediately.”
