I was recently involved in planning the infrastructure of a new ICU. Usually the ICUs utilize two separate networks: One for the monitoring equipment (plus ventilators, infusion pumps etc) and one for the hospital network (electronic charts, X-rays etc.). Some of the newer patient monitors have access to both networks so you can look at lab results and the X-rays at the bedside. Apart from this, both networks are completely separated.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
