These are trying times. The corona virus pandemic has changed life as we know it. Although our health and safety should always be top priorities, it can be argued that there’s never been a more important time than now to remember that. Our hospitals are busier than ever thanks to COVID-19. So, it can also be argued that a hospital’s use of digital signage has never been more vital.
Digital signage can help to diminish the confusion that often comes with an increase in visitors. By helping to reduce fear and worry, hospital digital signage can vastly improve the patient experience.
Offer Wayfinding Solutions.
Most hospitals are big places. So when visitors enter the front doors and are met with a litany of different routes to different locations, it can create a lot of anxiety. By having digital signage immediately visible upon entry, it can help to quickly ease the tension that often comes with hospital visits. Display maps and directories to help people navigate through the facility’s hallways and units. This will save both patients and staff members a lot of time and frustration.
Display tips for staying safe.
The current COVID-19 crisis calls upon us all to remind each other about staying safe methods. There’s no such thing as advising people “too often” about their needs to wash their hands, use hand sanitizer and cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing. In addition, your hospital’s digital signage should also post reminders of screenings, vaccines and other health and safety tips.
Display necessary alerts.
Is there construction taking place on hospital grounds? Does an announcement need to be made about an emergency situation? Where are the nearest exits in the event of a fire? Displaying information that answers these and other questions will help to enlighten patients of where they can and cannot go when visiting. Just as importantly, it helps visitors to feel safe in the event of an unexpected incident.
