We had a major shift from hanging laminated papers on hooks on patient room doors to now using the PCS which has increased presentability, uniformity, communication, and safety for all. Having the acrylic windows available for customized inserts has been very useful as well, with our graphic designers making inserts that match the style of the outer sign.
The patient care sign helps improve communication at the hospital by allowing us to communicate with all different staff members.

It improves communication because it is immediate communication that can happen between caregivers.
