Tip of the Week – Trends in TeleICU Nursing Care

Ruth_Kleinpell_screenshotI traveled to Denver back in May for the AACN critical care nurses NTI 2014 conference. In this segment, I chat with critical care nurse and AACN Flame of Excellence Award Winner Ruth Kleinpell, PhD, RN-CS, FAAN. Ruth is a professor and Independence Foundation chair of nursing and directs the Center for Clinical Research and Scholarship, Rush University College of Nursing in Chicago. She also serves as associate dean for research there.

Ruth received the award for sustained regional and national contributions to acute and critical care nursing and edited “Outcome Assessment in Advanced Practice Nursing,” the 2009 Advanced Practice Nursing Book of the Year by the American Journal of Nursing. She also belongs to the editorial boards of the American Journal of Critical Care, Critical Care Medicine, Journal of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and The Nurse Practitioner. R

uth is one of the lead researchers in the uses of Tele-medicine in the ICU setting and seeks to measure the effects of this technology on the quality of nursing care for the patients. Telemedicine is an emerging subspecialty of critical care nursing, yet limited information exists on the impact on nursing care.

Telemedicine in the intensive care unit (ICU) has expanded to include over 200 hospitals, with monitoring capability for over 6000 beds (12% of ICU patients in the U.S.). It is estimated that between 800 and 1000 RN’s currently practice in tele-ICU’s and over 16,000 bedside nurses interface with these units. Here’s that interview with Ruth.
