Digital X-Ray Viewing for Tight Spaces
In most Chiropractic and small clinic offices floor space is a premium luxury. To keep monthly rent and lease payments affordable you have to squeeze as many services as possible into the smallest space in your office. Many times, you are forced to get double duty out of one room. Adjustment or procedure rooms get used as dressing or waiting areas while office and clerical duties are performed in kitchens and breakrooms. This is especially true when it comes to the x-ray room in many practices. Since x-rays are not performed continuously throughout the day, these rooms are typically small and quite often used for other services such as massage, adjustments, and procedures. In the days of film developing, this was further complicated by the need for a darkroom. Most x-ray rooms had a darkroom located adjacent to or down the hall from x-ray. You had to leave the patient unattended while you went to develop a series of x-rays. This also took up valuable floor space.
Clinical Chairs So Comfortable – You will want one for your own home!
Patient comfort is always important, but even more so these days, when competition between imaging and medical facilities is fierce. We have to make special considerations for our patient’s comfort when it comes to long treatment procedures like dialysis, oncology, and IV therapy centers. It’s just as important with pre & post imaging exams where patients are staged before exams and recover after exams, and with patient resting & injection chairs found in PET/CT centers. Pain Management centers, Same Day Surgery, PACU, Emergency rooms, Rehab centers, Physical Therapy, Bariatrics, and Extended Care Facilities all benefit from these comfortable chairs.

National Nurses Week 2021
National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale's birthday. Nursing professionals have never been more vital to the health of our nation than the past year and it’s more important than ever to support and recognize them for the essential role they play in their communities and the countless lives they touch every day. The American Nurses Association (ANA) announced on its website that National Nurses Week is now a monthlong celebration to expand opportunities to celebrate these superheroes of healthcare.
