Since 1970, January has been National Blood Donor Month. The goal: to encourage blood donation during the winter months, when need often outpaces supply. At STANLEY Healthcare, we’re proud to support blood banks—and drive innovation in Environmental Monitoring across healthcare settings—all year long. In conjunction with National Blood Donor Month, here’s a quick look back at 2016’s innovations.

The nurse educator who works tirelessly to keep staff informed and motivated. These are just some examples of Hugs Champions.
This post kicks off a four-part series about radiofrequency (RF) interference and its impacts on wireless solutions, including infant protection. Future posts will explore some of the technical issues and the importance of staff awareness—as well as how electronic patient security technology can help.
Wired or wireless? It’s a question that every senior living organization faces when choosing a nurse call solution. I’d argue that the advantages of wireless technology are by now well established.
In my many conversations with executive directors, clinicians and even IT professionals, it has been very clear that the resident experience is now the guiding principal for senior living organizations large and small. This is reflected in accommodation models, dining options, activities and virtually every other aspect of delivering services and care to residents.
