Work Satations on Wheels | Inamdar Hospital

Work Station on Wheels

We at IMH have well established Hospital Information System called PALASH.In addition to improved data accuracy, mobile computer workstations allow nurses and doctors to access the equipment and supplies they need to take care of each patient. To facilitate the handing and taking over the process, administration of medication, and documentation at the bedside, we at Inamdar Hospital have designed a workstation on wheels and given it to all wards with a ratio of 1:4.

Following are the benefits of this trolley

1. Easy for the staff to identify the patient

2. Improved Data Accuracy

  • We have a Laptop on each trolley which can be taken to each patient’s bedside.
  • Staff no longer has to leave the room and make multiple trips to a centralized workstation. Having a computer workstation on hand that travels with a nurse promotes timely, accurate data entry.
  • Reducing errors and improving patient care.

3. Promotes Patient Engagement       

  • Point-of-care computer carts save time. All the documentation is done in front of the patient.
  • Nurses don’t have to make multiple
  • Involve the patients in their treatment
  • Increase the IPR with the patient and relatives
  • Maintain the confidentiality of the patient as all the plan of care is discussed and documented in front of the patient.

4. On-Hand Equipment

  • Having equipment on hand prevents nurses from making multiple trips out of a patient’s room to get the supplies they need.
  • This feature of mobile computer stations saves time because everything necessary to care for the patient is right at the nurse’s fingertips
  • Secure Medication Dispensing When a nurse can retrieve a patient’s medicines from the HIS (Palash), the chance for medication administration error is almost nonexistent.
  • It helps in transporting Medical supplies (pharmacy which is received and for returning before discharge)
  • Making it more convenient for our nurses to complete the work on time.

5. Reduction of Infection and Cross-Contamination

  • This mobility prevents nurses from sharing a central workstation.
  • Prevent cross infection by using hand sanitizer after each use.
  • The high-touch area is taken care of to prevent cross infection

6. Point-of-Care Streamlining

  • Mobile computer carts allow for efficient patient care.
  • By streamlining the patient data retrieval process, hospital staff reduces the risk of error and increases communication between nurses and doctors.
  • Doctors can pull up a patient’s chart on the computer right in front of them at the patient’s bedside.
  • Mobile computer workstations increase efficiency and allow for clear communication between doctors, nurses, and other staff.

Conclusion

Computer workstations on wheels promote improved caregiving in hospitals, resulting in better performance among staff and most importantly, better outcomes for patients. Reduces all types of errors. All the documentation can be done immediately after the procedure and can retrieve at any time.

Effects of Percussive Therapy

Clinical evidence shows that The Massage Gun is a professional grade percussive therapy device ideal to aid in the recovery of athletes, and anyone else who suffer from injuries or muscle aches.

the benefits of massage guns and percussive therapy: speedier recovery, reduced muscle soreness and lactic acid build-up which could mean less pain, improved range of motion, better blood circulation and more.

Massage guns are primarily thought of as “recovery” tools in today’s fitness culture, but you can use them for either situation. In fact, using them as a warm up tool helps get you off the hook of that dreaded foam rolling ordeal.

In theory, the percussive therapy is doing several things you want in a warm up. First off, it’s heightening blood flow in your targeted muscles. Secondly, the pulsating is turning on your sympathetic nervous system, the fight-or-flight system that preps your body for activity and sport.

It looks like a power tool, and can sound like one, too. But it just may be your best method of recovering from a tough workout — and warming up, too.

We’ve been using massage guns on our patient and the results have been strong. If you train hard and are looking for an edge, a way to recover more quickly and get into your workouts more aggressively, this is a therapy you should consider.

Make Your Office Back Friendly

Make Your Office Back Friendly

 

 If you’re like many people, you probably spend much of your day sitting at a desk. This sedentary behaviour puts you at increased risk for spending prolonged time in poor posture, potentially causing pain and discomfort. Few easy tips that will go a long way in helping your back feel better at work.

  • Desk 

Make sure your workspace has:

  • Stable desk (not wobbly).
  • At a good height (28″-30″ above the floor is suitable for most adults).
  • Large enough for your computer and has surface space for writing and other tasks.
  • Not so large that you have to over-reach to do your work. This can cause excessive strain on the spine.

 

  • Chair

Use a well-constructed ergonomic chair to help reduce fatigue and discomfort, increase your blood flow, and reduce the risk of injury to your neck and spine.

Make sure your office chair:

  • Has a good backrest that provides lumbar support.
  • Can recline (sitting upright at a 90º angle is actually not good for your spine, 100º-110º is better).
  • Is not too high (your feet should be flat on the floor).
  • Can rotate or swivel so that you can easily switch from task to task.

 

Extra Set-Up Tip! 

All other pieces of furniture and equipment must be positioned to accommodate that perfect position. It might require stacking several books under the computer screen to bring it even to head level. The screen must be at eye level and the user should sit directly in front of the screen. A sliding keyboard attachment under the desk might be beneficial.

  • Computer

Since most office work is done on computers, where your equipment is placed can make a difference in how your back feels when you are at work. Try the following:

  • Tilt the keyboard down and slightly away from you for better wrist posture.
  • Make sure your mouse is close enough so that you can use it with your arms relaxed and as close to your body as possible.
  • Place the monitor directly in front of you at eye level, not off to one side, to avoid neck and eye strain.
  • If using a laptop, consider getting an external monitor or keyboard (or both). This will allow you to move each of these components separately to create a comfortable arrangement.

 

  • Practice Safe Sitting

Even with the “best” equipment, if you are not sitting correctly, your spine will suffer. When sitting, note where your head, hands, and legs are. To avoid back pain, make sure to:

  • Sit upright with your back and shoulders against the back of the chair.
  • Avoid holding your phone between your head and shoulder.
  • Don’t slouch.
  • Arms should rest lightly on the armrests to avoid circulatory problems or nerve pressure.
  • Keep your feet flat on the floor (don’t cross your legs!).
  • Relax your shoulders while keyboarding.

 

  • Take a break

Not just a coffee or tea break, but a spine breaks. Stretch, take a short walk, get the blood flowing. When you are at your desk, avoid staying in one position for a long time. Try switching between sitting and standing.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to leave your office feeling as refreshed as when you came in? Avoiding excessive strain on your spine can help you do just that.
