Abstract

This article presents the results of a study identifying older nurses' response to using various technology in their practice. This study measured nurses working with wireless peripheral devices, such as blood pressure cuffs, pulse oximeters, scales, glucometers, and digital thermometers, and monitoring units that were placed in the patient's home. Findings have implications for both older and younger clinicians as these types of products and systems can affect productivity, visit time, and assessment accuracy.
