The side chair allows close to 50% (according to BIFMA standards) of patients to place their feet flat on the floor with their back supported. This is an improvement over a non-adjustable exam table that leaves most patient’s feet dangling. However, a height-adjustable exam chair with a lower seat height can allow more patients to rest their feet flat on the floor which improves the accuracy of blood pressure measurements.
Use of a real-time locating system or patient self-rooming workflow can assist in waste reduction efforts to help eliminate costly bottlenecks.
Efficiencies are gained by bringing all vital signs capture into the exam room using an automated vital signs device. A mobile cart allows the vital signs device to be easily shared or moved from one location to another.
The height-adjustable exam chair decreases the need for manually lifting and repositioning patients. The center of the room is kept open to allow a 60-inch wheelchair turning area. The distance from the door to the corner of the room (18") allows for patient egress.
