COW and WOW On Site Services from ASR – Clean and Disinfected Carts for your Health System

May 19, 2012

ASR is the Metro Flo Healthcare reseller for Georgia and surrounding area. We provide Hospitals, Clinics and Medical Offices with the entire Flo Healthcare line of products, service, parts, accessories and support.

ASR is now offering this complete Flo Mobile Cart cleaning/maintenance/support service.
We thoroughly go through our detailed maintenance checklist and cleaning regiment on each cart. This project will help IT Departments focus on other IT concerns as the cart support will be off-loaded to ASR. The benefits for the hospital include: stretching the lifespan of existing equipment through preventative maintenance vs. acquiring new carts, presenting a visually clean unit to staff/patients/visitors, repair problems promptly and reduce down time for the hospital staff.

Point of Care and Antimicrobial – COWs or WOWs Need Antimicrobial or Microban Keyboard / Mouse

May 5, 2012

Computer on Wheels or Workstation on Wheels are the main component in Point of Care within a Health System. Moving from room to room, these devices can carry and transfer bacteria.

Antimicrobials are materials that are used to restrain the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi that dwell on non-living objects and surfaces, which cause odors and stains.

What parts of a COW or WOW get touched? Keyboards, Mouse, Med Drawers and Cart Handles/Worksurface.

Flo Healthcare puts an Antimicrobial, Microban, into the paint on their COWs. Their Med Drawers also have Microban.

That leaves the Keyboard and Mouse. ASR and Flo now offer a completely washable Keyboard and Mouse that have Antimicrobial built in. These are made by Seal Shield, who are well known for their innovative products for Healthcare.

Call us for a customized plan to keep your COWs or WOWs clean and disinfected!

ASR will help you upgrade to a washable keyboard and mouse with Antimicrobial properties. This is an important step in Infection Control.
