Patient Care and Safety – Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI), Infection Control Methods and UL60601

October 1, 2012

Allow me to touch on 2 critical areas of Patient Care and Safety.

Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) are described as: infections not present and without evidence of incubation at the time of admission into a Healthcare System. Infection control policies help reduce the number of HAIs and better patient care.

See my previous blog about Infection Control here:

Microban on COWs or WOWs helps too…of course, Flo Healthcare puts Microban into the paint and plastics on their carts. Couple that with Keyboard and Mouse with Microban from Seal Shield, you have greatly reduced the breeding ground for bacteria.

Another big point to cover in Patient Safety is using electronic equipment that is UL60601 certified. That means that any UL60601 medical device has to be safe to have within 6 feet proximity of a patient. UL60601 is in place to keep electonic dicharge from a medical device from reaching a patient. Flo Healthcare Mobile carts are UL60601 certified…not simply stated as compliant. Other COW manufacturers claim their COWs are compliant because each component is certified individually but that still requires in-house certification from those in Biomed. Again, let me state…Flo Healthcare Mobile Carts are UL60601 certified as a complete unit leaving the factory.

Computer on Wheels (COWs) or Workstation on Wheels (WOWs) Keep Rolling

August 21, 2012

COWs, as I call them, are essential tools of every health system. The carts from Flo are rock solid, in fact, we are currently upgrading the technology in 5 year old Flo 1750 carts. With a new Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Mouse Cradle, Scanner Holder and HP 8200, an old 1750 cart is almost new again. Once our techs clean, sanitize, service and inspect the cart as the final step, IT IS NEW AGAIN.

The nursing staff is pleased, the IT staff is pleased and the ROI on that cart pleases the Health System Administrators.

The newer generation carts, the Flo 1760s should be ready for upgrades now too.


Oh, by adding the Washable keyboards and mice from Seal Shield with built-in Anti-Microbial, this is a benefit toward Infection Control.

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.
