Mobile Medical Carts
Technology plays a crucial role in healthcare, and one of the devices at the forefront of modern care is the mobile computer cart. Workstations on wheels can bring exponential benefits to a clinical environment. Key features include mobility, secure locking drawers for vital equipment, and versatility.
Mobile Computer Cart Features for Improved Workflow
Improved Battery Lifespan
A mobile medical computing cart is only useful when it is working on the ward. Older outlet-rechargeable batteries require lengthy charging time and often only last a year, costing facilities considerable money for replacements.
At Scott-Clark Medical, we use our patented Flexible Mobile Cart Power Technology (FMCPT) to ensure your cart is always available for use. Our units have a built-in charging station, so while one battery is providing power to keep the cart operational, another is recharging. While a battery can charge a mobile workstation cart for around 10 hours, it takes less than 3 hours to regain a full charge.
This power system allows for better cable management preventing hazardous power cords from obstructing staff while caring for patients.
Our lithium-ion batteries can last up to 5 years, and we back it with our guarantee. These batteries are kind to the environment and your budget.
Built-In Mobile Computer
To make decisions on a treatment plan, a physician needs to have the most up-to-date information regarding their patient’s health. It can take time to update paper files and for administrators to add information to a computer system for their colleagues.
When staff have a mobile laptop cart, they can receive information in real-time. The Wi-Fi-enabled laptop can connect to the mainframe computer system so that if a lab or X-ray technician adds their results, the attending physician can view them instantly.
Staff can add information on the mobile laptop while they are with the patient, immediately making their notes available for other professionals, potentially beginning a treatment plan sooner.
This system is also excellent for keeping patient information confidential and contributes to hospital efficiency
Enhanced Patient Communication Features
Carts are designed with well-placed monitor mounts for visibility and a height-adjustable feature for raising and lowering the screen. Medical staff can lower the computer monitor to the patient’s eye line, enabling them to view their confidential data.
For wards with limited space, our carts offer a compact footprint while still providing a generously-sized work surface, so physicians can interact with their patients in a more personable manner.
Each clinical department has its challenges, and they need equipment to meet their specific needs. A medical cart used in an operating theater may be unsuitable for a dementia ward, or a fracture clinic.
You can design your carts to meet the needs of many specialties. Choose from biometric locking drawers for medications, dual-monitors for increased access to information, barcode wands to create logs of when a patient received medication, add chart holders and trash containers, and many more crucial elements.
Should your needs change, at Scott-Clark Medical, we provide a retrofitting service and can configure your cart to meet your new requirements. Rather than replacing an expensive cart or an entire fleet of carts when some parts start to show signs of wear and tear, we can replace and update specific peripherals, helping you to stay within your budget.
