Managing multiple pagers and phones

December 8, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources


Do you carry multiple pagers and/or phones on your belt? If so, it can result in pages being missed or jumbled. This is a documented issue and can have a serious impact on patient care.

If you carry multiple devices on your belt, be sure to keep each device approximately one hand’s width apart. We know this can be difficult if you have many devices you need to carry. However, close proximity can negate or interfere with the transmission of messaging.

If you have questions, please contact the Health Information Technology & Services Service Desk at 734-936-8000.
