Reduce Wear and Tear on your Hospital's Patient Bedside Tablets

By Cody Strate on Dec 5, 2019

It’s probably safe to say that the last time most of us drove a rental a car, we didn’t treat it with the same care and respect we would’ve had it been our own vehicle. We may have nicked a few curbs, left the sunroof open in the rain or even had an unfortunate spill in the front seat. That we didn’t clean up.

After all, unless there was major physical damage – think bigger than a door ding – we had no real accountability to the next person who’d drive the vehicle.

Once we pulled into that rental car bay, put the car in park and handed over the keys, it was back to our daily lives – where we’d only think of treating our personal cars with care.  

It’s a similar situation when it comes to implementing tablets – iPads, Surfaces, etc., – in hospitals.
