|Understanding how a nurse works for both administrative and clinical duties is essential when designing a working nurse station. This includes determining what office equipment, medical equipment, and supplies need to be stored in the station. The placement of file storage cubbies for binders and patient files is crucial to maintaining a proper workflow.|
Our understanding of the challenges nurses face when working in this vital hub of activity makes ACS a leading manufacturer of nurse stations in hospitals and assisted care facilities. A nurse station's design and construction must inherently ease the workflow and accommodate not just the nurses, but also their interaction with other medical staff and the public.
Nurse stations serve three main functions: communicating with physicians and visitors, managing patient records and monitoring patients. Functional nurse stations enhance the healthcare environment in many ways such as helping to provide immediate care to patients, helping visitors with questions and finding patient rooms, and working with physicians.
Common finish materials ACS uses in nurse stations include plastic laminate, solid surface, engineered resins and acrylics, with an eye toward durability without sacrificing the look of the station. Whether centralized, decentralized, or hybrid, ACS manufactures premium grade custom nurse stations that meets the needs and expectations of nurses, physicians, patients, and visitors.
