The use and growing reliance of evidence based design (EBD) goals and principles incorporated into healthcare facilities, is having a tremendous impact on the selection of products specified. Patient-centered environments, help not only patients and families cope better with illness related stress, they've also shown to accelerate the healing process and increase patient satisfaction. That same approach extends many of those and additional benefits to the staff as well. Staff centered concepts like improved communication is vital to address, and our Patient Care Signage (PCS) does just that. Sadly, 70% of accidental deaths and serious injuries in facilities are linked to communication failures. The simplest approach always works best, especially when dealing with Hospital Patient Signage, and it's therefore more likely to be put to correct use. Thus playing a critical part in protecting patients and facilities from just those types of communication errors. Our simple PCS method, along with an attractive and stimulating Staff Work Zones (SWZ) all play a huge part in improving overall staff morale and thus, patient care.
This product was designed to assist the EDAC world community and its recipients in achieving facility related EBD goals, improving a facility's National Patient Safety Goal Programs, and increasing patient satisfaction ratings from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS). Lastly, this product and its attachments are OSH-PD compliant.
Hospital Room Patient Signage has been approached from many directions, most are quite elaborate and expensive. Our approach is from the side of "simplicity makes perfect". Our philosophy is that if a signage system requires training - it is overdesigned. "Simple" also helps keep cost per bed very low and therefore within every budget. The clever design of this rail allows for easily displaying paper, laminated sheets and even thin-board items, up to 2mm thick (1/16 inch). Simply insert from below and move on. Simple. Safe. Sustainable.
Yet, this design also avoids internal rollers, that so easily jam, found in the most common alternate design. As a result, Casso EBD Patient Care Signage Rails will never jam or tear pages upon removal. Convenient 2' and 6'-foot lengths are perfect for a door face or exterior wall or head wall installations. Available in two colors on strong extruded aluminum.
