Wireless Upgrade Sets Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital Up For Future

 

wifiWireless network improvements at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital will now allow Wi-Fi capable equipment to serve patients in Lunenburg.

In September 2017, the wireless upgrade installation at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital (FMH) received over $100,000 in funding support from the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore. The upgrade will provide two access points, allowing wireless devices to have coverage even in the event of a failure.

The Information Technology team at Fishermen’s Memorial is excited to announce with these standards in place medical staff can immediately use the existing Electrocardiogram (EKG) Carts in wireless mode, meaning staff can use the carts to look up and transmit cardiac tests from any location. Glucometers in the laboratory will also be able to be wirelessly connected.

Past Foundation Board Chair Phil Bradfield notes with an ever increasing reliance on “connected” medical technology the Health Services Foundation is pleased to support the enhancement of the wireless information technology system at Fishermen’s Memorial. “Not only will this allow more state of the art technology to be used at the hospital but will also enhance the stay of our longer term patients by keeping them connected with their family and friends”.

With the upgrade the nearly 70-year old hospital will be future ready, able to support the wireless needs of the medical industry, such as a new NSHA-driven project, replacing current Intravenous (IV) Pumps with wireless units.

 

 

 

 

Since 1993, the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore is a nonprofit, aiming to enhance healthcare equipment and services at South Shore Regional Hospital, Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital and its associated sites.
