It’s the little things that make a big difference in hospital labor and delivery departments. In this case, we’re talking about small but powerful work surface lights on our new Fetal Monitor Workstation. L&D nurses love the lights, especially those working the night shift, because they can chart and administer medications without having to turn on harsh overhead lights that can disturb a resting mom.
Nurses and other clinicians also love other updates to the mobile Fetal Monitor Workstation that is showing up in more hospitals around the country. Those features include:
Nurses tell us they like that they can sit or stand at the computer, and that there are more easily accessed drawers that can be sized and organized as needed. Several also say our Fetal Monitor Workstation is much easier to move around compared to wooden carts more common in previous generations. Importantly, our Fetal Monitor Workstation is easier to clean and built with medical-grade materials that withstand years of daily hospital cleanser use.
Of course, we don’t just hear from frontline healthcare providers. We also pay close attention to biomedical engineers and IT techs when we design a GCX product. They too are enjoying benefits of the Fetal Monitor Workstation, including cable management guides that make cables less visible but still easy to remove, providing quicker serviceability if the monitoring equipment goes down and needs to be replaced. This means IT and biomed staff aren’t in a maternity room any longer than needed – a relief to both patients and staff.
