The facility has standardized on Welch Allyn Connex Vital Signs Monitors (VSM) in an effort to improve patient safety, care and efficiency, while also maximizing its investment in the Cerner Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and meeting the requirements of Meaningful Use. According to the staff at Lafayette, utilizing the Connex VSM has resulted in benefits in all of these areas. However, the benefit that has been most noted is a simple one: Welch Allyn Connex VSM gave nurses at Lafayette General Medical Center the gift of time.
