Since nursing began there have been many technological and medical advancements that have changed nursing practices and increased the quality of patient care. Patient health outcomes have improved through faster diagnosis, precise therapies, and hands-on patient care. Nurses can now work more efficiently and increase their workflow while reducing human errors.

In the past, nurses were often overworked and faced a lot of challenges that caused burnout and reduced their efficiency and productivity. Technology has provided significant enhancements that work to eliminate these challenges and make nursing safer for the nurses and the patients, which improves workplace morale. 

Here are some technological advancements that have made nursing a more enjoyable profession.

Enhanced communication

Communication is a vital aspect of healthcare, as it allows nurses and patients to stay in touch. The use of smartphones allows nurses to receive alarms, messages, and calls from their patients in real-time. This makes things much easier because it helps to eliminate unneeded trips to patient rooms. It also helps the patient receive care more quickly. 

Before, the patient may have to wait until a nurse sees a light outside their room or until they get the notification on the computer. This means that a patient could be left needing something for a bit of time. With increased communication between patient and nurse, they are likely to receive quicker and more efficient care. Because nurses are now more in touch with one another and with their patients, hands-on care has become the new norm. 

Electronic records

Most healthcare institutions have switched to electronic files for storing and managing patients' information. A nurse has easier access to a patient's medical history, allergies, and current treatment with the touch of a button. This is especially helpful when there is an emergency and a nurse needs quick access to the patient information. This could be to give them a certain medication, see their previous surgeries and illnesses or find a contact person. Electronic records save a lot of time that is better spent with the patient instead of going through piles of paperwork. Ultimately, electronic records help make nurse’s jobs easier as well as provide the patient with better care. 

Nurse server

A nurse server cabinet is designed to help nurses store and organize medical equipment in patients' rooms. Nurses spend less time looking for nurse gadgets because they are steps away from the patient's room. This allows nurses to focus on the health outcomes of their patients and provide better care.

FlowCARE designs your nurse server cabinet to fit your environment and suit your needs. Our three main designs are pull-out, pass through and tilt down, and they maximize the use of vertical storage space in your facility. They also minimize patient intrusions by making use of corridor space and reduce patient’s exposure to contaminants.

With the creation of new technology and new innovation, the lives of nurses have become easier, more productive and more efficient. Things like electronic filing, nurse server cabinet and other critical elements make it so that nurses can do their job with less stress, which allows the patient to receive topnotch care.
