Have you made any upgrades to the equipment in your pediatric office lately? Many smaller patients might be frightened of visiting the doctor, so it is important that you keep your equipment safe, or even light-hearted!
As well as improved patient comfort levels, having the latest tools will only help to enhance the accuracy of your diagnoses.
Let's take a look at four essential tools for every pediatric office to implement.
PediaPals Dino Reflex Hammer
Perfect for putting a nervous child at ease, the PediaPals Dino Reflex Hammer can be tucked away inside a pocket with its head peeking out. Instead of wielding an intimidating metal hammer, you can tell your patients that this special dinosaur would like to give them a "kiss on the knee".
Importantly, this reflex hammer stands up to the quality of conventional reflex hammers in terms of balance and weight.
It comes with a pocket clip to attach the hammer to your person - the perfect way to show off the hand-painted cuteness of the dinosaur's face!
ADC ADTEMP Mini Non-Contact Thermometer
This compact thermometer will do a great job of keeping your patients comfortable. It is non-contact, so you won't need your patient to open their mouth or do anything that makes them feel uncomfortable in order to read their temperature.
One of ADC's newest portable thermometers, the ADTEMP Mini NC Thermometer offers great value at under $50 with Stethoscope.com.
Here's the lowdown:
- Reads your patient's temperature in under a second
- Color-coded LCD display with a built-in fever warning
- Is capable of taking up to 1,000 measurements in a single charge
- Clear and audible beep when measurement is complete
