For the Care of Our Patients
Hospitals are tasked with being one of the most diverse institutions within our community. From medication storage to radiology, or food nutrition to infectious disease, the responsibility sits heavily on the shoulders of each member on the hospital team. They are accountable for storing and administering medications and 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 for their patients.
Staff efficiency is key in these diverse facilities, whether it be in the blood bank, cancer facility or research facility. It all starts with providing hospital personnel with the tools and products they need to be able to focus on their fundamental goal – quality patient care. 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. Specifically for nurses, 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.
However, 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 wellbeing. Missing an outage, drop or rise in temperature for a period of time, 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.
The care hospitals provide to their community starts with the care and attention they give to everything else.
A Partnership in Proficiency
Immediate. Flexible. Complete.
To maintain safety and efficiency, we begin with a 24/7 continuous monitoring system complete with immediate alert notification via e-mail, text or phone. This means a member of the team gets notified the moment a system enters into alarm, granting them time to properly address the situation, and react in a manner that saves the product involved. No more manual checks for temperature readings or the possibility of missing an outage. No more stealing valuable seconds of your time that a patient urgently needs. The automated system will continually monitor this information for you and alert you in real-time through the software located on your computer system.
Whether you have a few refrigerators or hundreds, no two facilities are identical, and customization is the key to ensuring your continuous monitoring system is where you need it, when you need it. For this reason, alerting can be varied by department, piece of equipment, time of day, day of the week, condition parameters, delivery method and escalation protocols. Unlike us, the system can be in multiple places, all at once. In fact, it can be everywhere, monitoring everything, all at the same time.
The flexibility and scalability of the system means that it can monitor any location, from cold storage to liquid nitrogen units, in any size facility. From a small, single facility, up to a complex, multi-location facility, your continuous monitoring system can adapt and grow as you do. With the option to function as a standalone system or a fully networked environment that can simultaneously monitor hundreds of appliances, you do not need to worry when it comes time to add refrigerators, freezers, or other appliances in your facility. The system has unlimited capacity, making it easy to adjust to where you are and what you need.
“This is just a note about how very satisfied we are with the work that David Bondi has done for us. Simply put, he is easy to work with, responsive, calm, in tune and communicative. Well, I do not think we have ever had the pleasure of working with a vendor that was just this terrific! Thank you…and please let him know we think he is A#1
PS. Your tech Brian Lewis, who came today for probe re-calibration, was excellent. He was knowledgeable and courteous.“
Vaccines are critical tools in maintaining the health of our communities. The logistics of delivering vaccines and verifying that they consistently maintain their recommended temperature has always been a difficult task. At times, vaccines were found being stored outside of the manufacturer’s recommended range. Prolonged temperature excursions can result in the vaccines becoming…
