From Your Perspective

Banyan Virtual Nursing care is delivered to every patient room through a TV-mounted Banyan Bridge communication camera, a speaker and a microphone.

The Virtual Nurse will ask for permission before entering the room for a face-to-face interaction. The circular Rainbow Light on the camera will be on when the system is in use and off when it is not. The camera is never used for recording purposes.

From Our Perspective

Each Banyan Virtual Nurse is an experienced RN who oversees the care of multiple patients using three screens. The screens display the patients’ electronic medical records, a workflow tool to stay on task with the bedside teams and a dedicated screen for patient interaction.

Each Banyan Virtual Sitter can monitor nine to 12 high-risk patients. They work to prevent falls, ensure drug compliance, improve response time and provide patient and staff safety.
