Hoana Medical Expands Partnership With The Queen's Medical Center to Improve Patient Safety

Visionary Hawai'i Hospital Expands Cutting-Edge Patient Safety Technology

HONOLULU, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoana Medical, Inc. announced today that The Queen's Medical Center will equip 100 additional medical-surgical floor hospital beds with Hoana's LifeBed(TM) Patient Vigilance Systems (LifeBed), bringing the total number LifeBed's available at Queen's to about 150. Hoana's technology transforms any bed into a LifeBed, which invisibly tracks a patient's basic vital signs without any connection to the patient whatsoever. However, if the patient is in trouble, the LifeBed alerts the nurse -- essentially providing "another set of eyes" to look after the patient.

"We are excited about the LifeBed because it has improved our quality of care. Typically medical-surgical nurses care for four to five patients. The LifeBed operates like a surveillance system that provides another set of 'eyes' that monitor the patient's condition," said Cindy Kamikawa, chief nursing officer at Queen's. "Changes in a patient's condition from due to medications, changes in physiologic conditions, or other treatments are identified early by the LifeBed, which results in early interventions and positively impacts patient outcome."

"Queen's is an excellent partner. It's great to work with visionary leadership at the national forefront in patient quality and safety," said Dr. Patrick Sullivan, CEO of Hoana Medical.

"Research has shown that rapid response teams (RRT) are not effective if the patient is found too late -- many times patients are found in critical condition, or even deceased, also referred to as a 'dead in bed,'" said Dr. Larry Burgess, vice president of medical affairs for Hoana Medical and a practicing ENT surgeon and Professor at the University of Hawai'i John Burns School of Medicine. "The Joint Commission's (hospital accreditation authority) newly released patient safety goals for 2009 highlight the fact that merely responding to a patient in need
