This may not be the exact place to ask this question, but I figured someone around here could at least point me in the proper direction. My father-in-law was recently in the ICU. One time while using my iPod Touch to look up my e-mail using the patient's wifi network, I noted two other secured administrative networks. I also saw that much of the telemetry was sent via Wifi to the nurses' station and the charting area immediately outside the door. The nurses each had a hand held version of their computer screens and when the doctor's rounded they had a really nifty golf-cart looking thing with Wifi access to all of the notes, telemetry, etc., etc. This made me wonder, (1) are there problems with Wifi pollution in these areas that might lead to mix-ups or the inability to get information when needed. (2) Since I am a writer, if there was a story in this for some of the mags I write for. SO, can anybody here send me to a place I might be able answer these questions and maybe an expert or two to talk to? Thanks.
