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.
Amid all the changes 2020 has brought about for businesses, individuals, public places, schools and healthcare systems, increasing safety measures and implementing new protocols are at the top of the list. Everyone who walks through your doors wants to know that they’ll be safe inside. New innovations in technology help make that possible.
Safety is of primary importance as we all face new realities and want to do what is right in the COVID-19 era. “Do what is right” is one of PDi’s core values. You can trust that throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, US-based PDi has made the necessary improvements to our manufacturing and business processes during these challenging times. The health and safety of our team is of utmost importance while we continue producing necessary products for our healthcare customers.
While no one ever wants to be in a hospital, it can be especially hard for children to spend hours or days in a hospital bed. To improve the patient experience, teams at children’s hospitals are always looking for ways to add more safe options for fun and play. People within hospitals and companies work together intentionally to create solutions that revolve around fun for young patients.
