ViSi Mobile Smart Tip - Corrosion

Corrosion is most often caused by improper cleaning or drying of the devices. Corrosion is visible along the edge of the contacts. The greenish discoloration and white residue are indicators of corrosion. Nursing personnel are responsible for the cleaning of patient care equipment, abiding by manufacturer recommendations. Patient care equipment such as blood pressure cuffs, O2 saturation monitors, etc. are cleaned once daily or after patient use as indicated.

ViSi Mobile Smart Tip - Radiology

If the patient’s vital signs are monitored with Visi Mobile, the chest sensor should be removed from the chest securements if it will interfere with the quality of imaging of chest CT scans, chest X-rays, etc. To remove, lift the chest sensor out of the chest securement. There is no need to remove the clear plastic securement from the patient’s chest or arm if you intend to add ViSi Mobile back onto the patient after their scan.

When COVID-19 Strikes Your Hospital

As a hospitalist on the front lines of COVID-19, I know firsthand how the homeostasis of a hospital is altered when community cases of COVID-19 increase. For example, emergency departments immediately enact novel pathways and protocols for triage, evaluation, and admission (1). Hospitals begin to assess and enhance inpatient capacity, often by opening units not traditionally used for general medical care (for example, postoperative care units) as COVID-19–designated areas (2). Additional tactics, such as decreasing elective surgical cases, merging specialized intensive care units (ICUs), and offering staff moonlighting opportunities to increase critical care capacity, are also pursued. And in short order, hospital command centers spring up to monitor patient flow, streamline communication, and coordinate activities ranging from patient visitation policies to media releases (3).

COVID-19 Surge Preparedness

Preparedness is not a new concept for hospitals and health systems, and it goes far beyond the walls of the hospital itself. Hospitals and health systems prepare for multiple different types of mass casualty incidents, including public health emergencies.

How ViSi Mobile Helps Reduce the Occurrence of Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers, decubitus ulcers, or bedsores are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue that can develop over hours or even days. These ulcers occur when bony areas of the body have prolonged contact with an external surface, such as a bed, causing pressure and decreased blood flow to the area, leading to necrosis of the skin. Even though pressure ulcers are adverse events that are considered avoidable or preventable, they continue to be a problem. ViSi Mobile can help.
