Vital signs are central to the assessment of physiologic functions of patients and must be included in the electronic health record. The purpose of this retrospective and cross-sectional design study was to evaluate use of-and satisfaction with-automated physiological monitoring systems. Usage data from a hospital database were analyzed 3, 6, and 12 months after implementation of the automated system (June 2018 to May 2019). In addition, questionnaires were completed by 168 nurses, and 20 nurses were interviewed between August/September 2020 and October/November 2020, respectively. Results revealed that usage frequency of automated physiological monitoring devices increased steadily with user familiarity. Although respondents indicated general satisfaction with the devices, system downtime, sufficiency of the battery charge, and data transmission speed were identified as needing correction to smooth workflow and boost work efficiency. Although most interviewees considered devices easy to use, some mentioned transmission speed of the gateway, scanner sensitivity, and accuracy of the ear thermometer as needing improvement. For nurses to use automated physiological monitoring devices fully, a user-friendly design in functions and features is vital, and in-service training and a streamlined workflow are recommended to facilitate technology adoption.
