powershell help with script to get hotfix information get-hotfix

I have this script, and it gets most of the info I need, I would like it to also return the name of the system the hotfix is on.

$kbpatch = Read-Host "enter the KB patch here"
$servers = get-content servers.txt
$servers | foreach { get-hotfix -id $kbpatch -computername $_  | select HotFixID,InstalledOn }

This returns this:
HotFixID                                                    InstalledOn
--------                                                         -----------
KB132456                                              10/23/2015 12:00:00 AM


I need the system name in there also, but my failed efforts so far have not worked.

Thank you as always!

Include the PsComputerName property.
$servers | foreach { get-hotfix -id $kbpatch -computername $_  | select HotFixID,InstalledOn,pscomputername }

Nope, thanks for responding, but that didn't display the system name. I also  tried $_, computername, systemname, pscomputername.  none displayed the system name, .

make sure you
1. open powershell (run as administrator)
2 run the command            import-module activedirectory
3. use CN in the script to get the computername
