Beloit Memorial Hospital’s outdated clock system was causing major problems for its doctors and nurses. After investing in a Primex's ClassicSync clock system, out-of-sync clocks in the emergency room became a thing of the past.
The emergency room at Beloit Memorial Hospital had eight clocks showing eight different times. Nurses, doctors, and hospital staff had no idea which time should be trusted. In the emergency room, everything from the dispensing of medicine to time of birth and death is tracked by the minute. Accuracy here isn’t a convenience, it’s essential.
When the hospital’s hardwired clocks became too expensive to maintain, the Beloit Hospital knew it needed a different, more cost-effective system.
Beloit Memorial Hospital’s Master Electrician, Ray Bressler decided that the best option for the hospital was Primex’s ClassicSync clock system. “Our hospital campus is large, but the Primex clocks were still a breeze to install, especially since hardwiring wasn’t required,” said Bressler, “Additionally, budget is always a concern and the system was less expensive than most of the others out there.”
