Waterloo Healthcare Newsletter – June 2024

Lots has been happening at Waterloo Healthcare since our last newsletter. We joined many of you at the HSPA conference in Las Vegas. Had a wonderful time reconnecting with several of our distributors as well as our Sterile Processing customers who are on the front lines when it comes to managing their hospitals’ code cart fleet. Without their support, a cart is just a cart…so thank you for all you do to keep our carts at the ready to help your staff save lives!

Before purchasing electronic locking carts for a new department, it is important to consider how employee workflow will be impacted. Our article below, “Enhancing Hospital Efficiency: Advantages of Wi-Fi Capable Electronic Locks on Procedure Carts”, strives to shed some light on this topic. Electronic locks have become increasingly more popular as hospitals address medication security concerns. Electronic locks allow for automatic relocking – the ability to restrict access to specific users as well as the capture of audit trails that can show who has accessed a given cart. Audit trails give vital information that helps to enhance the security of medications, syringes, and other “at risk” supply items (saline flushes, etc.).

Waterloo Healthcare Newsletter – September 2023

Third Quarter Updates Hard to believe that summer is drawing to a close and kids are heading back to school. Just seems too soon, doesn’t it? As they say “time flies” and it certainly seems that way… But while time has been flying, we at Waterloo Healthcare have been busy expanding our team, connecting with our customers and distributor partners at the AHRMM conference, and creating tools that can help you decide whether steel or aluminum is right for your next procedure cart. First and foremost, I’d like to welcome Tim Johnson to the Waterloo Healthcare team. Tim joins us as our new Business Development Manager and will be working directly with our reps in supporting our distributor partners and end users.

Anesthesia Carts Last quarter we focused our attention on one of the most important procedure carts in a hospital: emergency carts. While no one can deny the importance of emergency carts, anesthesia carts also play a vital role in patient treatment, and we will focus our attention on them in this newsletter. In recent years, we’ve seen not only an increased focus on the security of controlled substances on anesthesia carts, but an elevated cart inventory list based on the increased use of disposable equipment. These two criteria have driven several advances in lock options as well as overall anesthesia cart design. We will cover many of these improvements in the educational section of this newsletter. As medical treatment advances, we are focused on offering product features that address these new requirements. From our dual credential lock options to our wider platform anesthesia carts, Waterloo Healthcare is [...]

“Time Is Muscle” This is an expression we hear frequently from our customers who are members of their hospital code response team. It emphasizes the importance of a rapid response when treating patients experiencing a cardiac arrest. As you probably know, in cardiac arrest, the heart is no longer sending oxygenated blood to vital organs, including the heart itself! The heart is a muscle that needs oxygen in order to function. During every minute that passes when the heart is not properly perfusing oxygenated blood, it is estimated that 10% of the heart’s muscle tissue dies. This means that after five minutes of a non-perfusing rhythm, half of the heart’s tissue may already be gone – “TIME IS MUSCLE”. Certainly, this is a far less than ideal situation when trying to preserve life! Our slogan is “Better Carts For Better Outcomes”. That means that Waterloo [...]
