CUSTOMIZE: BUILD YOUR OWN WALLAroo®
From color, style and fashionable finishes to options, accessories and functionality, Carstens’ WALLAroo® workstations offer ultimate flexibility to meet all your needs
Carstens, Inc. is excited to announce the launch of their WALLAroo® Point-of-Care Medication Distribution System. It features Wi-Fi enabled RFID Locks that provide healthcare facilities with instant control of each cabinet’s access permissions from one administrative PC, and a live audit trail on the network for superior access control and shrinkage protection. For years WALLAroo cabinets have been used in healthcare facilities nationwide to store medications and supplies at the point-of-care, and today Carstens is offering this new RFID Lock option.
With increased awareness and stricter regulations surrounding medication accountability, drug diversion, and the opioid addiction crisis, Carstens recognized a need for a WALLAroo cabinet that offers additional security that will reduce the chance of medication errors and HIPAA violations. The RFID Lock gives administrators the ability to allow and deny access to medications in WALLAroo cabinets and monitor every cabinet in a facility’s system using the lock’s Control Software.
Authorized staff hold their ID badge to the RFID Lock on the WALLAroo cabinet and the door unlocks and records the user name and time, transmitting the data over Wi-Fi to the Control Software. The administrator can view these events as they occur and can program automatic audit trail data reports to send to a list of email addresses on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. This audit trail feature encourages employee accountability, and investigating medication discrepancies can be accomplished quickly.
The lock works with existing ID badges (HID® Prox and HID iCLASS®), can be battery operated and is networked wirelessly making the WALLAroo with RFID Locks easy to install and implement. The WALLAroo cabinet itself is space saving, durable and seamless for infection control. They come in a variety of sizes and configurations and provide a sturdy work surface for prepping medications.
“We are excited to offer this advanced RFID option that gives administrators greater control over who has access to medications and audit trail visibility,” said Mike Cook, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The WALLAroo with RFID Locks, when used throughout a facility, become a medication distribution system that is less costly than other automated medication dispensing systems used today. There are no ongoing service fees and the system is scalable to work within your budget.”
WALLAroo with RFID Locks are on display this week at Carstens’ booth (#7466) at HIMSS19 in Orlando, Florida. For product information visit http://www.carstens.com or call 1.800.782.1524.
More and more healthcare facilities around the country are transitioning to electronic medical record systems. While these systems certainly offer some advantages over traditional patient charting solutions, they leave hospitals and other facilities susceptible to system failures caused by cyberattacks.
You can probably guess the top two causes of death in the United States –heart disease and cancer. But do you know what ranks as number three? It’s not car collisions, nor is it diabetes. The shocking answer: medical errors.
According to a 2013 article in the Journal of Patient Safety, researchers estimate that over 400,000 preventable deaths occur each year as a result of medical errors.
Space management is a difficult undertaking for many hospitals, outpatient clinics, dialysis centers, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare facilities. Space comes at a premium in many of them. Carstens hopes to help solve this problem with the launch of our two newest products, the Mini WALLAdesk™ and the WALLAdesk Charge™. They join the Original WALLAdesk® as part of the Carstens family of wall-mounted folding work surfaces. All three units are wall-mounted desks that take up absolutely zero floor space. How can the WALLAdesk family of products benefit your healthcare facility?
Chicago, IL- Carstens, Inc. has announced the release of two new wall-mounted folding desks to their WALLAdesk® product line: the Mini WALLAdesk™ and the WALLAdesk Charge™. WALLAdesk units from Carstens can be used in many different environments as a laptop or tablet work surface, a space-saving side table, or a platform to prepare medications and take notes. All three versions of the WALLAdesk are so space efficient they can be mounted anywhere a work surface is needed, from patient rooms, corridors, laboratories, dialysis clinics to exam rooms and more.
Secure storage is an absolute necessity in all hospitals. While some facilities still store medications and supplies in a centralized location, like a pharmacy or nursing station, more and more hospitals are storing these things closer to the point-of-care of even in actual patient rooms. Lock boxes, secured using either a keyed or keypad lock, are a convenient solution for hospitals to store medications, supplies, valuables, and much more.
Carstens, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of their new line of MEDIroo™ Lock Boxes. These lock boxes are designed to secure medications, supplies and other treatment necessities at the point-of-care. They also aide decentralization distribution efforts, helping clinicians be more efficient.

When it comes to improving the patient experience, it should come as no surprise that one of the most impactful areas to focus on is nurses. Improving their work environment and job satisfaction is key. Many nurses are already seeking employment in careers that are less stressful and demanding, and their workload is only going to increase as demand for those trained in the profession continues to rise.
