Ten help desks were using the Ergotron DS100 Triple-Monitor Desk Stand, 33-323-200, but the stands occupied too much desk space and did not allow for adequate adjustment.
Using the Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm, 45-241-026, Page Concepts, Inc. configured a three monitor mounting system that keeps the worksurface clear, with the monitors “hovering” above. More importantly, the Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm allows for left-right, in-out, up-down, pivot, and tilt adjustments as well as rotation to portrait orientation. Supervisors and coworkers who wish to view a screen no longer need to invade the user’s space. The arm simply swings out, up, and over for an individual or group to easily see.
Integris Health required additional Metro Carts with an articulating laptop arm attached. The manufacturer does not offer an arm when a rear mounting frame is ordered.
Page Concepts, Inc. made a small modification that allowed us to attach an Ergotron LX articulating monitor mount to the rear accessory bar. Photo shows cart before other accessories were attached.
One of the hundreds of applications for various Ergotron products within the Integris system is this use of two Ergotron LX Dual Side-by-Side Arms, 45-245-026, at a nurse’s station. Four nurses need to share one large table, but the work surface must be free for very large documents. I first did photo mockups showing options, such as the three-post option shown in the first image. The second image is an actual photo taken at the time of installation. The third photo shows the station in use two years later.
Ergonomic Workstations - Sit/Stand
Health and safety of hospital administrative staff is important to Integris. We partner to find the optimum solution for each employee in need of a sit/stand or other ergonomic solution.
Labor and Delivery
For Labor and Delivery, Integris nurses needed to watch fetal monitor display while charting on their EPIC monitor. For this application, a wall-mount was inadequate because the patient is frequently moved from room to room. A WOW with 24” monitors side-by-side would not fit through doorways and was generally awkward. The monitors could be stacked vertically on a WOW, but space would be an issue.
We interviewed the nurse in charge and evaluated her equipment and spaces. We inspected her existing Amico carts and determined we could drill through their tops and install a grommet-mounted pole with monitors stacked one above the other.
No additional space was required and the cost was far less than any other solution. One of my manufacturers offers a fetal monitoring cart at several time the cost of our simple conversion of an existing cart already in use in Labor and Delivery.
Reconditioning Fleet of Capsa Powered Carts
A Page Concepts, Inc. customer acquired a hospital with a fleet of over 100 powered WOW’s. These are Rubbermaid/Capsa carts – excellent products but they are 2012 and 2014 vintage and were in need of repairs and cosmetic improvements to bring them up to our customer’s standards.
We prepared a list of inspection procedures before thoroughly going over each cart. Every battery was tested using special diagnostic tools. We replaced and repaired as necessary. Broken trim was replaced as well, and we cleaned and polished to give them a like-new appearance.
We delivered to our customer a fleet of WOW’s indistinguishable from new in both performance and appearance at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
