SAN DIEGO, Oct. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sotera® Wireless today announced that Dr. Rosemary Kennedy, the Company's chief nursing officer and a recognized innovator in nursing informatics, will give a presentation, "Surveillance Monitoring for All Patients: How to Message and Roll This Out Across the Organization," on Friday, October 16, 2015 at 1:15 p.m. Central time. The lecture is part of the Alabama Organization of Nurse Executives (AlaONE) Leadership Conference, Navigating the Future: Improved Patient Outcomes Through Nursing Leadership, at the Margaret Cameron Spain Auditorium in Birmingham.

"Increasingly, nurses want to understand how to utilize new technology to implement surveillance and continuous vital sign monitoring in their non-ICU hospital settings to enhance nursing practice and patient safety."

Sotera® Wireless is a leader of the movement to improve patient safety by empowering clinicians with the latest digital monitoring. The Company's technology enhances safety by detecting early signs of deterioration in virtually any care setting and enabling early intervention and rapid response, all without limiting the patient's freedom of movement.
