How Joos Charging Stations Lead the Way in Patient-Centric Care

In the fast-paced environment of emergency departments (EDs), every second is crucial. Yet, amidst the chaos of medical emergencies, a critical issue often goes unnoticed – the challenge of keeping mobile phones charged during unexpected hospital visits. This is where Joos steps in, reshaping patient care one charge at a time.

Driving Change in Healthcare

Over the past year, Joos has not only significantly expanded its presence in the healthcare sector but has also emerged as a pioneer, partnering with over 70 hospitals. One of the key driving forces behind this trend has been Joos’ commitment to addressing the limitations of traditional phone charging methods like charging lockers and plug sockets. Our recent blog post elaborated on this, illustrating how innovative solutions like Joos can help lessen the burden on busy A&E departments.

Understanding Our Impact

To further accelerate this growth in 2024 and gain deeper insights into why hospitals choose Joos and the benefits we provide, we invited our healthcare clients to participate in a comprehensive feedback survey. Let’s take a closer look at what we found!

Challenges Prior Implementing Joos

Before Joos entered the industry, hospitals faced several challenges that made them consider a solution like Joos. Our survey revealed the following: 

  • 42% of respondents said patients experienced some form or shape of anxiety over low phone batteries during unexpected A&E visits. 
  • 35% mentioned nurses and staff were bombarded with charging requests, diverting their attention from critical patient care. 
  • 21% of respondents reported that patients made unauthorised use of plugs sockets in waiting rooms, which was reported as an electrical safety risk to the patient.

These numbers demonstrate some of the challenges hospitals were facing, whilst showcasing the the pressing need for innovative and reliable charging solutions in emergency departments. After understanding the initial challenges, we asked our clients how Joos has changed the patient experience since installing our solution.

After the introduction of Joos stations in hospitals, we discovered: 

  • 0% – we we’re proud to see that none of the respondents reported that they have encountered any sort of challenges in managing Joos charging stations for patient use. This was fantastic feedback to see, as our vision was always to provide a service that seamlessly integrates into existing hospital workflows and environments without any extra staff resources needed. 
  • 100% of those respondents reported that they witnessed patients use Joos stations frequently, typically in the A&E environments. 
  • 66% of hospitals noticed patients were happier and more comfortable because of Joos. Our service helped with worries about low batteries and was super convenient.
