Citizen Disinfectant-Ready Printer Cleaning & Care Instructions

Important WARNINGS and Notes

  • Unplug or turn off the printer prior to cleaning.
  • Never spray or pour the cleaning agent directly onto the printer. The cleaning agent should be applied to a soft cloth, which can then be applied to the printer.
  • The cleaning agent should be applied evenly and care should be taken to cover the entire surface to be cleaned.
  • Strictly follow the cleaning agent manufacturer’s instructions (and CDC Guidelines*) for use of its product, including allowing sufficient time after application for the cleaning agent to achieve maximum cleaning and disinfection. Once achieved, cleaning agent residue can be removed by wiping with a damp cloth, ensuring no droplets remain on the printer.
  • Do not mix cleaning agents.
  • Cleaning agents, especially ethanol, which is extremely flammable, should never be used in proximity to high heat or open flame.
  • Wear appropriate protective gear during the entire cleaning process to avoid potential adverse effects from contact with the cleaning agent or from its fumes. Citizen strongly recommends use of gloves, protective eyewear and masks that cover both the nose and the mouth.
  • Ensure that others in the immediate vicinity of the cleaning are also properly protected or are moved a safe distance away from the printer for the entirety of the cleaning process.

Sinai Hospital Utilizes the Datalogic Gryphon at Patient Point of Care

Posted June 11, 2013

Overview
Like no other industry, Healthcare has experienced an explosion in technology that affects and improves both the doctor’s ability to provide care, and the patient’s knowledge and response to treatment. Technology that was once science fiction is now common place with tools like: external vision systems that present three dimensional images of inside the body; micro surgery that minimizes invasiveness and speeds recovery; micro transducers that provide real time diagnostics from within the body. The list of advancements grows daily. While these advances lead healthcare diagnostic technology, more fundamental systems such as patient records management and prescription administration have lagged far behind.

The Federal Government enacted legislation aimed at increasing the efficiency of the healthcare system by requiring the implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR). A leading regional healthcare organization in Baltimore, LifeBridge Health, has implemented Electronic Health Records systems and taken the added step to implement bar code technology at the patient point of care. LifeBridge Health consists of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, Northwest Hospital, Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, Courtland Gardens Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and their subsidiaries and affiliated units. LifeBridge Health is one of the largest, most comprehensive, and most highly respected providers of healthcare in the Baltimore region.
