Patient Overview Tab

The Overview tab can be explained as an individual patient’s home page which provides access into several different areas of patient’s information. The patient information includes the patient’s SafeNSound collected data, vitals (which can be zoomed in to view beat by beat), location indicators, saved events, and saved alarms as well as Patient Cards located along the top of the screen.

Patient’s Main screen

 On the Dashboard, click or select a patient in the My Patient section to view multiple tabs within the patient’s chart. The tabs are listed here and shown in the image below.

This view shows a broad overview of patient’s heart rates every hour, pending alarms, and saved events across the main screen, and in the lower right-hand corner a + sign, which provides a link to Quick Links option. Under Quick Links, the user can quickly create a note, update Vitals or MEWS, make a change in the patient’s location, or to access a report like the Infant Car Seat Challenge. For Quick Links details, refer to See Quick Links..


  1. Heart Rate Trend and Vitals. Manually entered or integrated with EMR, the lowest and highest heart rates are shown for each hour.
  2. Quick Links -+sign. Refer to See Quick Links..
  3. The pending alarms and saved events across the main screen. The user can utilize the right and left arrows on the bottom of the page, to scroll through the patient’s timeline to view the timestamps of these items.

Patient Cards

The Patient Cards within each patient’s SafeNSound record provide a standardized view into basic patient information. These Patient cards display active patient information to select from, such as Latest Vitals, Saved Events, Current Location, and the MEWS assessment. The patient cards seen below are:


  1. Latest Vitals - the most recent vital signs are represented in this card.
  2. Saved Events - include strips or events saved by the MT that are awaiting RN approval,
  3. Current Location - Locations noted would include the current and temporary locations like Radiology or Bathroom, as well as any RTLS Locations, like Stanley Tracking. Location icons are also noted in the lower right-hand corner of the screen, which provides a timeline that monitor technicians can scroll through to see the amount of time the patient has been away from their room or bed.
  4. Alarm Review - This card can be customized for each customer account. For example: The organization may determine that all Asystole and Vfib alarms require review by their staff. All the alarms related to Asystole and Vfib would then collect under the Alarm Review tab, for each patient.
  5. MEWS (Modified Early Warning Score). These scores include the patient’s most recent vital signs and their level of consciousness (AVPU Score). The MEWS is not completed until there is an assessment of the patient and the AVPU score is entered by the caregiver.
  6. 24hr Heart Rate provides the highest and lowest Heart Rates within the last 24 hours.
  7. Code Status is obtained from the patient’s EMR. The code status must match the options available in SafeNSound in order to be automatically pulled and displayed.
  8. Monitor Time provides the length of time the patient has been monitored in SafeNSound.
  9. Monitoring Order provides the patient’s monitoring order from the EMR.
