Modern medical professionals need their laptops to read patient files, update notes, and stay in touch with colleagues in real-time. The ability to link into hospital computer systems and quickly communicate with fellow professionals can make it easier for medical staff to perform their duties.
Because physicians and nurses work more efficiently when they have instant access to a laptop, they can spend more time treating patients at the point of care. A mobile cart is ideal for carrying the computer while also enabling the medics to have extra equipment they require for their shift.
There are several essential features to look for on your mobile workstation.
Comfortable Ergonomic Design
If medical professionals had to set a laptop on a table or a patient’s bed, they could suffer from sore backs and poor posture. Using a computer cart on wheels, they can use the height-adjustable feature to work at the most suitable height for their build.
There is a dual benefit because medical staff can show their patients information on the large LED computer screen to understand their condition and treatment plan.
Increased Storage Space
Medical professionals need access to a considerable amount of equipment to perform their duties. Using a mobile laptop desk allows them to take advantage of the extra drawers and baskets on the cart.
After viewing the patient’s file and carrying out an examination, they can open the pull-out drawers to retrieve medicines or a syringe to take blood. Vital signs recording devices enable them to check the patient’s condition, providing them with a range of useful data.
Medical staff often share information on the latest techniques or training to keep colleagues up-to-date with their professional development. With a stand desk like you would find in a home office, there is no option to move the table to show the screen to others.
However, using a mobile workstation, medics can turn the presentation cart to face their colleagues or remove the screen from the unit and place it on a supporting wall-mount. This additional functionality makes it easy for staff to pool their knowledge for collaborative diagnostics and treatment plan development.
