BedWatch Admit Control is fully mobile, like all BedWatch products, and allows users to access the full spectrum of tools using any Internet-capable device — even a smartphone.
Placing Patients from You Smartphone
Step 1: The requestor, typically a unit nurse or other patient placement team member, will begin the bed request process by logging in to BedWatch and searching for a patient by last name or medical record number.
Step 2: The requestor will select the correct patient to be placed from a list of patients who match the search parameters (such as multiple patients with the same last name).
Step 3: Once the correct patient has been selected, the requestor will add any additional necessary information to the bed request form (e.g., isolation precautions, sitter needs, etc.) and submit the request.
Step 4: BedWatch automatically updates information for all users, so House Supervisors and other key team members can view incoming requests on their mobile phones and finalize the patient placement process, regardless of where they may be in the hospital.
