Scary moments in healthcare: How RTLS badges increase safety for nurses

In the healthcare industry, scary moments are not simply reserved for Halloween. Staff members who have the lives of patients in their hands spend each shift hoping to foster health and strength. While this is the optimal scenario, there are many situations where patients are facing serious illness or injury. For these patients, each day carries its own set of challenges, dangers, and scary moments.

While managing the health of each patient can cause episodes of nervousness and fear, even for the most professional of nurses, there are also scenarios where they find their own well-being at risk.

Volatile Patients Place Hospital Workers in Danger

Healthcare providers are under a constant cloud of safety concerns, as patients from all layers of life enter their doors. Some are sick, some are agitated, and some may battle mental health issues.

Minimizing Stress in Hospitals and Clinics

Physical safety is important, but Real-time Locating System technology keeps healthcare staff members’ sanity at a safe level as well. PAR (Periodic Automatic Replacement) level management is just one example of this.

Keeping clean storage closets and empty rooms stocked and organized is often a tedious project in hospitals and clinics. In a fast-paced environment, remaining appropriately stocked can be a tall task.

When closets are low on supplies or nurses can’t find what they need, these stressful moments carry over into other areas of their workday, creating a negative effect on the way patients are cared for.

How can you best systemize rooms and closets in the midst of the chaos? What are some strategies that allow you and your team to use these for what they were designed to do best?

In the healthcare industry, there are certain levels of inventory that are on hand at all times. This especially goes for items such as monitors and infusion pumps. Establishing PAR levels is a practical way to keep inventory levels under control by utilizing a Real-time Locating System to notify staff when clean supply closets are not fully stocked, or when dirty supply closets are full and equipment needs to be cleaned. Furthermore, understanding historical PAR levels will help identify trends so that you can be more prepared moving forward.
