Evaluating The Integrator

December 15, 2020

When considering a major system purchase it is just as important to evaluate the systems integrator, the company that will install and support the system, as it is the system itself.  You can certainly purchase the best and most technically advanced systems on the market, but if the systems integrator is not capable of properly designing, installing, implementing, and supporting the system, the end result will likely be poor or possibly one of the worst buying decisions you ever made. 

Are your ceilings and communication rooms considered “Spaghetti Incidents”?

December 1, 2020

Most will ask, “What is a Spaghetti Incident?” and the answer is poor cabling practices, in that, it looks like someone just threw spaghetti in your ceilings and communication rooms. The pictures below are what I would consider a “Spaghetti Incident”. Poor cabling practices like these are a tripping hazard, not conducive to air flow for heat dissipation, inefficient when making changes/troubleshooting and susceptible to damage when others are working in these areas.

As a Service Technician for IMS, I work directly with Nurses, Nurse Managers, Biomed Technicians, Electricians, and a host of other professionals within the Hospital on a daily basis. I answer questions, help solve problems, and basically do anything that needs to be done to keep the Hospital’s Patient Security System running smoothly. A lot of this involves taking phone calls from staff because of an issue they are having. One of the biggest comments I hear from nursing staff is "I didn't know if this was a big enough problem to have bothered you after hours, but I wanted to check".

Too Many Computers?

January 29, 2020

Just a brief decade ago, computers and electronic charting were trickling into many hospital environments.  Then came electronic medical/health records and the flood gates opened – computers were needed everywhere.  Desktops, laptops, WOWs (workstations on wheels), tablets, smart phones, and more. 

Core Competencies

August 14, 2019

Have you ever considered what makes someone choose one company over another? Is it the exclusive line of products they offer? Is it their customer service? How about their installation team, are they top notch? What about training after the sale? We all know there are always many things to consider when you are making decisions about doing business with a company.  Those elements become even more crucial when you are considering a complex system solution at an enterprise level. 

Best of The Best

The National Dog Show, televised every year after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, has become a fan favorite, even for those who don't typically follow dog shows. The winning entry even makes national headlines and generates a lot of publicity for the winner's breed. But what does winning the National Dog Show mean for the breed?

What steps can an Emergency Department take to protect its staff from assaults?
