Hospital Asset Management

Posted in:

Often times, when we hear from our healthcare customers, they are having issues keeping track of equipment and supplies that are necessary for them to give proper care to their patients. Things like intravenous pumps, wheel chairs and supply kits go missing at the drop of a hat, forcing employees to use their valuable time to track down what they need. When things go missing, it can also force the hospital to unnecessarily purchase new items, which causes flawed record-keeping.

On December 21, 2007, the U.S. Department of Transportation published a final rule explaining the Federal Highway Administrations (FHWA) requirements for maintaining traffic sign retroreflectivity.

Anodized Aluminum Tag - Five Point Promise

Popular throughout the second half of the twentieth century for both machine tools and architecture, anodized metal can also be used to transpose photographs onto its surface.

Tabbed Nameplate Asset Tag

Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference. Earlier this year we introduced our tabbed nameplates for our Metal Barcode Nameplates and have since added the tabbed option to our "AUTOGRAPHS" Nameplates as well. The premise was very simple - to make it easier for our customers to remove the liner from the nameplate without touching the adhesive.
