The patient experience is incredibly important at health treatment centers or infusion clinics where patients typically spend hours receiving treatment. At times, these hours can turn into boredom. Sure, patients can bring their own phones, books to read, or puzzles to do, but depending on the treatment, they may not be comfortable or able to use both of their arms the whole time.
Imagine being a patient with so many entertainment options that you lose track of time while you’re receiving care. You’re surprised when nurses come to take your vitals because you’ve been so engrossed in the game you were playing. Instead of stressing over your next test, you’ve been watching relaxation content and are calm and collected.
Patient experience matters.
PDi understands that. Trusted for 40 years, US-based PDi satisfies patients in a variety of healthcare spaces with our long history of design and manufacturing complete patient television systems.
Patients deserve excellent care in many ways during their healthcare journey. That care comes through many things like individuals, medicine, and even patient-facing technology. In fact, patient television technology designed for patient use helps satisfy patients and engage them directly in their care
The patient experience of care is far-reaching and includes everything from phone calls with healthcare staff to the clinical care they receive to how they spend their time during treatment. Excellence is the standard. There are three key ways that patients in all healthcare spaces should have technology to support their care experience: entertainment, engagement and education.
We’re in a new year, and COVID-19 is still around, which means healthcare facilities, businesses and individuals are still working together to keep our communities safe. In hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities, cleaning, disinfecting and prioritizing patient safety have risen in importance this past year.

Choose healthcare-grade patient TVs designed for patient safety, rather than simply shopping at your local consumer electronics store. Following the requirements from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) ensures that you give your patients or senior living residents access to excellent TV entertainment, while making their safety a top priority.
All electronics present risks, especially for patients who may have an IV or other break in their skin. This puts them at a higher risk of being shocked by any powered electronic device, even those in good condition. The NFPA has risk-based guidelines that hospitals and healthcare facilities need to follow to prevent shock and fires caused by electronics in patient care areas.
Healthcare priorities have certainly shifted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Luckily, the right technology can help you through these challenging times.
