Your hospital’s accident prevention arsenal just got stronger.
Ever-increasing emphasis on patient safety has led to the development of the IDS Communication Board System, a family of field-tested products installed in academic medical centers, acute care hospitals, surgery centers and long term care facilities. Our patented system includes a variety of innovative solutions to reduce risk and improve regulatory compliance in health care facilities, and among the latest additions are the Compliance Boards for hospitals.
Compliance Boards are one of the most critical products we offer in the quest to eliminate “never events” and reduce the occurrence of hospital acquired conditions. Developed with the help of thought leaders in patient safety, these easy-to-read checklists can play a vital role in avoiding wrong-site surgery, mislabeled or lost specimens, and retained foreign bodies. Our compliance boards are an indispensable tool to facilitate effective communication among members of the surgical team and to reinforce adherence to best practices.
Compliance Boards are cost-effective hospital whiteboards that can be customized in both appearance and content to suit your unique needs and are easy to redesign when standards or patient care initiatives change. Appealing graphics can be applied to match your color schemes and the displayed text can reflect your standards and practices as well as important guidelines, such as the World Health Organization’s Surgical Safety Checklist. (Its use has contributed to significant reductions in complication and death rates in diverse hospitals and settings, and with improvements in compliance to basic standards of care.)
The Compliance Boards are a low-tech solution that yields consistent results. They feature Dry-Erase technology, allowing for critical patient-specific information to be added to the pre-printed graphics field. These enhanced visual cues provide “at-a-glance” precautionary reminders regarding proper procedures. You determine the Compliance Board’s visual appeal and its content. The end result is an affordable, attractive and efficient addition to your ongoing campaign to provide the very best care for your patients.
