Hospital Computer Cart Battery
Nurses are fantastic. Where would we be without them? But even the most serene nurse gets frustrated when she or he comes on shift to find the computer cart battery is flat. It means a delay in effectively taking care of their patients, something no good nurse ever wants to happen.
Problems with computer cart batteries
Medical computer carts have made life much easier for nurses and other professional hospital staff, by making it possible to take medical records and medications right to the patient's bedside.
But often, the computer's battery doesn't stay charged for a whole shift. If the battery dies, the nurse can't access the information she needs. Standard batteries can take a long time to recharge, and have to be taken to a specific charging point, and they are also often heavy to handle.
The FMCP System
Scott-Clark Medical has developed a unique hospital computer cart battery, designed to be used as part of their Flexible Mobile Cart Power system. Each cart carries two 25-amp lithium phosphate batteries, which take only 2.5 hours to charge.
The batteries remain charged for 6 to 8 hours, but with 2 batteries, the run-time is between 12 and 16 hours – easily covering a nursing shift. When one battery is running low, the computer can simply be swapped to the other battery, so over the whole shift, there will never be an interruption in power.
Reliable, front-line technology
Professional hospital staff needs top-quality, reliable systems to help them work effectively. The FMPC system ensures that the computer always has access to power.
A visual warning alerts staff when battery power is running low, and the batteries themselves are lightweight and easy to exchange. There is a full 5-year warranty, so if there's a problem, the battery is simply replaced.
Giving nurses the tools they need
Making sure staff have the best equipment can mean improved health outcomes for hospital patients – and who doesn't want that?
