Beds have colors according to pending action: green – no action has to be taken, orange – action has to be taken and a small icon indicates what action, in this case a new glucose value was detected in the hospital data system, which needs a validation from the nurse, and red – urgent action required, for example occurrence of hypoglycemia, or an advised measurement that is more than 30 minutes late. Each bed shows the current insulin pump rate, the most recent glucose value and the time it was taken, and the time the next glucose value needs to be taken. Empty beds are shown in grey.
