Wipe all surfaces down (sani-wipe) worksurface, handles, keyboard,

keyboard tray, mouse, mouse pad area, barcode scanner

Wipe down Monitor Exterior (Note: Never wipe monitor screen with

Sani Wipe or Alcohol Wipes…use water on Microfiber cloth)

making your Cart harder to push

During the Shift


Plug in to top off battery when cart is not in use – even for 5 minutes extends 

run time

Keep cart out of main traffic areas in hallways
Watch where you are going with cart – adjust monitor to provide clear view
