“The collaboration between Regions and Medtronic started in the beginning of April. Typically, ventilators require close monitoring and settings needs to be adjusted. This means hospital staff are entering a patient’s room regularly.” 

“For one COVID-19 patient on a ventilator for two weeks, it eliminates about 65 in-room visits. As of Monday, based on Regions’ current ventilated COVID-19 patients, staff will have 450 fewer-in room visits for the average two-week duration of ventilator use. Sullivan said it’s reduced the numbers of times they’re going in and out of rooms by nearly 50%.”
