Joint Commission (JCAHO) audits and Infection Control departments recommend removing items like shared books, magazines, and crayons from waiting areas.
Or alternatively, they recommend stringent, time-consuming, and costly cleaning procedures for shared items that must be documented and logged. Playpads solve this problem and still give waiting kids something fun to do.
Playpads are not shared. The tear-off sheets go with each patient from the waiting room to the exam room and then home.
Many of you work in places that have spent a tremendous amount of time and money building a new children's facility or redesigning and refurbishing an old one. Playpads can help keep your facilities looking brand new.
Ever tried cleaning crayon marks off of your walls, floors, and furniture? Playpads eliminate the need for someone on your staff to worry about this.
Improving your patient experience and your patient satisfaction is paramount in the healthcare industry today. Hospitals and networks are hiring Chief Experience Officers to run new Patient Experience organizations all over the country. Playpads are an easy way to make a significant and quick improvement in your waiting areas. Why wait?
Marketing & Brand Loyalty
Building your brand is about way more than logos or slogans, billboards or t.v. commercials. Building your brand is about the details, the special little things that you do for your customers that make them feel appreciated. The little things your competitors are not doing. Why not make playpads one of your special things?
Waiting areas are the first impression you make on your customer. They should be inviting and an extension of who you are. Giving a child a playpad sheet is like handing them an individual gift. It says, "We care about you, and we thought about your experience in our waiting areas and exam rooms."
For under $0.50 per child, playpads are a tremendous marketing value.Given the enormous cost of conventional advertising on billboards, radio, and television, playpads are a much more cost effective way to reach your customers directly, and actually help them during their stay, generating brand loyalty.
What is it costing you to clean crayon, marker, or ball-point pen marks off of your walls, floors, and furniture? Playpads eliminate these costs.
Are you spending staff or volunteer time copying coloring sheets, organizing crayons, and/or ordering trinkets or stickers? Playpads can greatly reduce or eliminate these costs.
Ordering playpads in bulk can drastically reduce your unit cost per patient. When you order for several facilities within your network, you can save a lot of money. We can even store them for you and ship them to multiple locations on your schedule.
Plain and simple, playpads are loads of fun and are not something kids see everyday.
There is just something about scratching a sheet from a playpad and seeing colors and images magically appear that is wonderful for kids. It is also a tactile experience away from the digital world and something fun to do with a parent or sibling.
Oh yeah, and keep out of the reach of adults, because they love to scratch too!
Low-Tech . . . and Proud of It!
Technology is pervasive. Our playpads are decidedly low-tech and non-digital. Many studies now suggest that giving kids a break from digital stimuli is healthy and beneficial for their young minds. The tactile experience of scratching and discovering provides just such a break.
