Almost any medical facility will eventually find themselves in need of a medical cart. Transporting equipment, medication, and other supplies around a facility is never as simple as picking it up and carrying it. Staff and patient experiences can be significantly improved by the presence of high-quality and reliable carts.
For example, a hospital cart with weak or inconvenient batteries can interrupt patient care - which can have dire consequences. Carts with poorly-designed wheels can get stuck or even cause damage to the cart and its equipment. Small trays and other workspaces can slow down staff workflows and cause spills and other accidents. While some cart problems may be minor on their own, they can accumulate over the course of a shift to significantly delay staff and lower morale.
The best things to look for in a cart include high-quality materials, well-designed corners and joints, powerful batteries, and efficient designs that maximize workspace without adding bulk to the cart. Depending on your needs, you may be looking for some features more than others, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on the basics.
There are a massive number of hospital cart options available on the market, and the possibilities can be overwhelming. Getting the right cart for your facility isn’t rocket science, though. You just must find a high-quality build that has the features you need - and that doesn’t have unfortunate trade-offs like unnecessary weight and short battery life.
