Case Studies on Decentralized Medication Distribution

Carstens’ White Paper: Decentralized Medication Distribution

This paper examines the role of decentralized medication distribution on the impact of nurses’ time at the bedside and medication errors.

Questions explored include:

  • Does locating patient medications in the patient room decrease the amount of time nurses spend going to a centrally located medication supply rooms?
  • If medications are distributed at the bedside do less errors occur, in part, because of fewer interruptions?
  • Do nurses spend less time running back and forth to medication rooms and have more time for direct patient care?
  • Does having more time available decrease nurse’s medication errors?

Health Records  at the Point-of-Care

WALLAroo® workstations play a key role in hospital’s point-of-care EHR initiatives

When Rockford Memorial Hospital in Rockford, Illinois was transitioning from paper charting to electronic health records, its project management team knew that they wanted patient records to be easily accessible throughout the hospital, especially at the point-of-care. They recognized that keeping EHR near the patient would improve workflow efficiency and patient care.

Some patient rooms lacked space for mobile charting carts and/or hospital storage cabinets, so building in-wall kiosks was considered and would have been costly. It was later decided that the EHR equipment could fit inside all the rooms if mounted on the wall. Carstens’ WALLAroo® workstations fit their needs perfectly.

Just a few WALLAroo® workstations were initially installed; today they are in all patient rooms (396 beds), along most corridors and even in some emergency rooms. Installed were 4” deep, two-door WALLAroo® workstations in the corridors to meet Life Safety Code; both 4” and 8” two-door WALLAroo® workstations are installed in patient rooms.
