Idaho hospital touts lineup of high-tech beds

Denver Post, September 23, 2008

A Coeur D'alene, ID, hospital has introduced "smart beds," a new technology that is assisting the facility's intensive care nursing staff. The beds, which are programmed to say various things based on the patient's needs and care instructions, say things like "Please stay in bed," and "Do not pull on your tubes." The beds also can offer such instructions in 14 different languages.
