It was the middle of the night and the nurse had just left the room when the McCarthy's son began having a febrile seizure. Instantly lights flew on as a paramedic who had been remotely monitoring the toddler's vital signs from The Clinical Logistics Center (TLC) downstairs radioed into the room.

Asking for permission to video into the room, the paramedic visually checked on the little boy and immediately pushed out an alert to the nurse and to the Rapid Response Team who were at the child's bedside within seconds.

The Logistics Center at Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando is just one of the unique ways this pediatric hospital uses the latest technology to ensure patient safety. The Logistics Center is staffed round-the-clock by experienced paramedics who are monitoring every inpatient. In addition to checking vital signs, the paramedic also has access to each patient's electronic medical record, which includes lab work, patient history, specialty clinic reports -- that paramedics can see by signing into one area. The TLC has the ability to pull data from the patient's record and display it in a way that makes it easy to follow, spot trends, and identify problems.

No other pediatric hospital in Florida has a facility like this one - with paramedics in The Logistics Center there 24/7 to provide extra layer of security and act as additional eyes and ears for the nurses and doctors — and for parents.
