No they don't because they don't have LAN ports or USB ports - at least not
one's easily accessible by RNs/MDs/etc. They are single purpose machines
that are locked down very well and they are being used by people who are not
interested in getting them to do things they are not designed for. Again, I
have not seen a blue screen on a critical piece of equipment in 14 years.
Walking by the RN station and looking at the computers they use to chart -
well that is a different story.
