Macedon, NY – May 2009 – Magnatag Visible Systems makes tracking patients and surgical staff in hospital operating rooms easy and accurate with the O.R. Surgery Schedule Dry Erase Calendar. Available in four sizes, the porcelain-like steel dry erase marker board allows hospital staff to track patient locations and surgical status – as well as the complete surgical staff treating each patient – as they circulate through operating rooms in a busy hospital.

The quick and easy-to-understand format tracks up to 50 operations in a one or two-day timeframe. Key information, such as patient, room number and attending staff, are printed as headings on the board. For easy status changes, customizable, 35-inch long, two-sided Flip-Over™ magnets display patient status and surgical information on both sides. Names of O.R. and support staff, including surgeon, attending physician, anesthetist and nurses, are listed on separate magnets on the dry erase boards. The boards can also be written on directly with dry-erase pens.

The O.R. Surgery Dry Erase Schedule board is already helping hundreds of doctors, nurses and hospital administrators schedule surgeries, track patients and coordinate staff schedules:

• “It is very effective for communicating priority cases that impact our schedule to the entire staff at one time. The board is in our new O.R. We use it to add special cases and emergencies to our schedule.” - Hospital O.R. Manager, Huntington, NY

• “The board allows us to have all the information we need and only the information we need about a patient and the surgical team, posted where we can all see it, so decisions about the schedule can be made as the day unfolds. We can drop in emergencies and prioritize. The whole staging process is much more efficient when everyone can see what is going on and no resources are wasted.” - O.R. Head Nurse, Adventura, FL

Magnatag also manufactures other hospital-specific dry erase calendar whiteboards for in-patient and ambulatory surgery scheduling. For more information and to order online, please visit http://www.magnatag.com."
