Hospitals are accountable for storing and administering medications, food for patient care, maintaining the integrity of blood and patient samples, and much more, all while being upheld to strict standards and guidelines to meet regulatory requirements and maintain a safe and healthy environment.
Staff efficiency is key in these diverse facilities, whether it be in the blood bank, cancer facility or research facility. With so much consistently happening all at once in a hospital, the hustle and bustle leaves little to no time for manually recording data points for hundreds of units located throughout the facility. This task can be particularly cumbersome as the temperature of any refrigerator or freezer located at a nurse’s station that contains drugs, patient food, blood or specimens must be checked and logged daily to ensure proper temperature control.
Monitoring and recording the temperature, humidity, and various other conditions of storage areas and units is essential to maintaining the vitality and integrity of patient samples, blood, food, and medication that are integral to patient lives and well-being. Missing an outage, drop or rise in temperature, or excessive humidity levels can make all the difference when it comes time to perform life-saving surgery, blood transfusions or simply feeding an in-house patient.
Mesa offers hospitals a unique system which not only notifies staff members of temperature fluctuations, but also outages and excessive humidity levels. Our 24/7 continuous monitoring system can alert via phone, email, or text message.
