Do You Think Of Managing The Hospital Elevator In This Way?

Mar 07, 2018

At present, most of the hospital's management of the elevator only stays on the manual inspection of elevators for the first time and rushes to extensive maintenance such as on-site maintenance. However, in the face of escalating use of elevators, this management method is far from guaranteeing the safety of elevators , Stable, reliable operation, can not solve the problem of crowded people in the hospital building. The use of information technology to remotely monitor and optimize the use of elevators in hospitals is an effective way to ensure the safe operation of vertical traffic in hospitals, improve the longitudinal traffic conditions in hospitals and refine the management of elevators in the current environment.

    Jiangsu Provincial People's Hospital of the old courtyard a total of 51 elevators, of which 47 vertical ladder, the selection of eight different brands. Based on the Internet of Things technology, this system makes scientific and intelligentized management of 45 elevators in the old hospital district, and establishes a complete set of elevator safety monitoring and alarm system, which realizes 24-hour real-time monitoring of elevator operation status and fault information, especially When the lift is in trouble, maintenance personnel can know all kinds of fault information for the first time, issue dispatch instructions and implement rescue.

    The maintenance personnel only need to go through the mobile APP in each elevator to find the details of the escalator being maintained and record the maintenance records one by one on the smartphone client.

    When the elevator fails, the system will automatically send an alarm message. Elevator SMS alarm is divided into: general failure (uneven floor, door fault, slippery escalator, speed anomalies, etc.) and security incidents (overhead, squat bottom, off people).

    In the event of a general failure, only SMS messages will be sent to the general manager of the elevator management and maintenance unit maintenance personnel; in case of security incidents, in addition to the SMS sent to the General Services elevator managers and maintenance unit maintenance personnel will be sent to the General Services Leadership.

    At present, congestion in the elevator lobby of large-scale top three hospitals is very common, especially during rush hour. In addition, in the hospital building, a specific period of time delivery of food, clothing delivery, caused by dirt transport ladder tension also had to deal with a prominent issue.

    Faced with the increasingly prominent contradiction between ladders, the control methods adopted by most hospitals for single and double deck elevators have shown their limitations more and more. The application of ladder control technology can achieve very good results.

    Outpatient rush hour rapid diversion

    Our hospital emergency room was built in 1980, a total of 18 layers, one to six for outpatient floors, seven to nine for pathology, ten, twelve for the medical center, the remaining floors for the administrative office floors.

    Outpatient building a total of 6 vertical elevators, two one to six floors, a single ladder, a double ladder, two one, four, ten, twelve, fifteen to eighteen floors.

    Excluding staff, our clinics receive about 15,000 visits a day. As outpatient functional areas are more, so every day morning peak there will be a large number of patients waiting for treatment and waiting for medical staff to work on the floor waiting for the elevator. Although six elevators have been relatively reasonable floor parking settings, but in the face of such a huge flow of people, most people still need to wait 8 to 10 minutes to get on the elevator.

    In order to solve the difficult problem of taking the elevator and taking the elevator slowly in the outpatient clinic, our hospital upgraded the two single and double elevator clinics in June 2016 and installed the ladder control device. At 7:30 on the working day, ~ 8:10 on the single double elevator control, so that these two elevator uplink only docked one, four, twelve, sixteen, seventeen five floors, down only one, four floors, the rest of the floor staff The stairs can be reached after the stairs near the floor to reach the relevant floor. After just 40 minutes of rapid evacuation, crowded conditions in the out-patient elevator lobby have been greatly improved, elevator transport efficiency has increased by nearly 50% and staff waiting time has been cut in half.

In-hospital elevator function control

    The elevators in the hospital ward buildings can be divided into two categories according to their functions - serving people and transporting goods.

    The service of the main groups are: patients and visiting entourage, medical staff, logistics support personnel; the transport of goods are: medical supplies, equipment, patient meals, medical waste, clothing, these items can be broadly divided into clean Two categories of objects and dirt.

    How to reasonably plan the function and time of use of the elevator so that all work can be done in an orderly manner is of crucial importance in maintaining the normal medical order in the ward building.

    Building 3, our hospital ward building, for example, the building a total of 5 elevators, 2 single double-deck ladder, 2-stop lift, a large station stop elevator. In the daily peak of the ladder, it is often possible to see that a large number of diners delivering meals to the patients are stuck in the waiting hall and can not access the elevators, or the elevators transporting medical waste are also carrying clean coats, which may result in cross-infection.

    In order to solve the problem of transportation difficulties of critically ill patients in ward building, we have also opened up a separate "green" elevator, which is normally used when there is no critical patient transhipment task. In the event of critically ill patients needing transshipment, After a person swipes a card on any floor, the elevator will arrive at the designated floor to pick up the patient as soon as the pre-sequence task is performed.
