  • Triage Nook Workflow
    The triage nook is a semi-private space designed to assess and capture vital signs. A curtain provides visual privacy, however patient health should not be discussed in this space due to privacy concerns. The nook may include a scale and automated blood pressure and pulse device. Optional equipment can include a wheelchair scale, a sink for proper hygiene and storage for supplies.

    All vital signs measurements can be taken in the triage nook. Patients are then escorted to the exam room and directed to a side chair or exam table for capturing additional health data. Increased patient flow can lead to queuing in the hallway, and family members accompanying patients may also create congestion. There may be a single station or multiple triage nook stations supporting multiple exam rooms.
  • Time Savings
    The triage nook workflow, when compared with the traditional, saves 30 seconds per patient by implementing automated vital signs acquisition.

Use of a real-time locating system or patient self-rooming workflow can assist in waste reduction efforts to help eliminate costly bottlenecks.

The side chair supports the patient’s back and allows most patients to place their feet flat on the floor—both effective for increasing accuracy of blood pressure readings.

Efficiencies are gained by bringing all vital signs capture to one location 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.
