Surgery centers are improving productivity using new LongLine magnets and customizable magnetic dry-erase whiteboards from Magnatag®. The boards use long color-coded dry-erase magnets to communicate the critical details of each patient procedure. A Florida nurse manager says: “The whole staging process is much more efficient when everyone can see what is going on. With patient information written on the long magnets, we can quickly drop in emergencies and re-prioritize. No resources are wasted.” A California OR Director says “Having the headings exactly the way we want them gives us faster throughput. Being able to change the standard headings to match our protocol is a huge advantage.“
“Surgery center customers tell us the long dry-erase magnets make it easy to manage the constant changes in scheduling priorities. They use the magnet colors to identify procedures and show special cases. You can write on both sides of the magnets; flip them over to show completed procedures, maintain privacy and display post-op information” says Christian Krapf, spokesperson for Magnatag. “Because protocols vary from one hospital to the next, we’ve made it easy to customize the standard board headings to match their terminology. A hospital can specify customized headings to be printed on the board as they place their order on line.”
Magnatag Surgery Schedule board systems are ready-to-use with magnets with everything needed to operate them and come in sizes to hold from 18 to 50 procedures. For more information go to http://www.magnatag.com/HXSR2 or call 800 624 4154 and talk to a visible systems specialist.
