Surveillance and Monitoring Concerns

CAUTION: Physiological Monitor Synchronization—Users and members of the Biomedical Engineering staff should be aware that the time on the monitor should be synchronized with the time on the systems' servers.

Erroneous Data Entry and Calculations

Note: Data Entry—Be sure that the specified patient is selected before performing data entry. Failure to make the selected patient the focal point of data operations could result in the data being placed into another patient file.
Note: Typographical Errors—Although the systems' modules may be configured to ensure that numeric data (for example, pulse, BP, or temperature) is within a specified range of acceptability, users may make typographical errors when entering data. Failure to verify your manually entered data could result in the storage of incorrect data.

System Security Considerations

Note: System Security—The GE Centricity products provide the capability to define the degree of user access to workstations through the use of IDs and passwords. It also allows the assignment of READ/WRITE privileges via security objects to determine who may access or record patient data. Failure to properly configure the security feature could result in unauthorized personnel gaining entry into Centricity and ultimately viewing or recording patient data.
