What to do with "Get Well" cards that enter patient stay rooms?
Cards accumulate and are displayed on the small patient table from which food is delivered, meds issued, and lab samples drawn. That surface is overused and of these uses, being a platform for Get Well cards is relatively unimportant in that critical Medication Safety Zone (MSZ).
To compensate, the cards get moved to the bed or get stacked on the table. Experience shows they quite frequently fall to the floor. Overworked staff returns them to that same bed side table.
Enter Infectious Disease Control (IDC) and Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI's), with hospital floors, being of course the least hygienic surface in healthcare. Get Well cards now transfer contaminants to the table top where the lab caddy now conveniently transfers these to other patient rooms and the lab. Currently 1 in 25 patients will be infected with an HAI during their hospital stay.
Casso EBD Patient Engagement Rail is mounted to footwall, or other suitable vertical surface. Get Wall cards are up and out of the way but always easily within reach of staff, visitors and mobile patients. However, most importantly it provides patients a means for continuous visual engagement, thus improving patient satisfaction. This simple product addresses 15 of 23 desired EBD goals, and even 5 of the 7 high priority goals for intensive care and Maternity rooms, all helping to soften the patient environ.
The clever design of this rail allows for art displays and Get Well cards up to 2mm thick (1/16 inch) to be inserted at will. Plus, there is no need for staples, thumb tacks, push pins or adhesive. This rail is equally good at displaying art in a Pediatric Ward, room or public spaces.
Each EBD rail is accompanied with OSH-PD compliant mounting hardware and an optional Label Frame, which can be mounted to the rail face. It can be used to post an inspiration message, a patient name, etc.
