The Importance of Automation Technology for Nurses


The healthcare sector is at a critical juncture. As the global population ages and the demand for medical services continues to rise, hospitals and healthcare facilities are grappling with a significant challenge: nursing shortages. This challenge not only strains the healthcare system but also threatens patient care and safety. In this blog post, we explore the pivotal role automation technology can play in addressing these shortages and improving healthcare delivery.

Impact of Nursing Shortages

Nursing shortages are more than just a staffing issue; they have profound effects on the operational and financial aspects of hospitals. The scarcity of nurses drives up wages, increasing operational costs. More critically, however, the heavy workload and high stress levels associated with nursing shortages can lead to increased errors and patient dissatisfaction. These outcomes not only impact patient care but also the reputation and bottom line of healthcare facilities.

Benefits of Automation Technology

To combat these challenges, healthcare administrators are turning to automation technology. This technology aids nurses in their duties, saving valuable time, reducing errors, and improving patient care and safety. By automating routine tasks, nurses can focus more on their core responsibility: providing quality patient care. 

For instance, even saving 10 to 15 minutes per patient visit by using automation technology can have a significant impact. It allows nurses to prepare patients or physicians for human interactions better, provide the right guidance, and ensure the highest quality care. One such example of automation technology revolutionizing nursing is Vigilant Verify IV.

Case Study: Vigilant Verify IV

Vigilant Verify IV is a prime example of an automation technology that eases the burden on nurses. It automates a routine task, freeing up nurses’ time. 

The solution’s intelligent systems can preempt potential errors, improving patient safety by providing nurses with critical information during the medication administration process. 

The impact of Vigilant Verify IV is quantifiable. The solution saves nurses approximately 3000 hours per year. This time-saving translates into improved patient care, decreased errors, and a healthier work environment for nurses. 


The importance of automation technology for nurses cannot be overstated. As hospitals and healthcare facilities grapple with nursing shortages, automation technology presents a feasible and effective solution. It not only reduces the burden on nurses but also significantly improves patient care and safety.
