Remote Temperature Monitoring in a Hospital Morgue



CAS DataLoggers recently provided the automated temperature monitoring solution for Euclid Hospital, a member of the Cleveland Clinic Health System featuring one of the region's leading rehabilitation and orthopedic centers. The hospital’s basement-floor morgue had recently installed a Thermo Scientific Model LMR 4-EO End-Opening Refrigerator capable of storing up to 4 cadavers, intended for holding them for transitional purposes while awaiting release papers en route to the medical examiner or a funeral home. In line with strict healthcare regulations, personnel needed a temperature monitoring device to help maintain the cooler at 2-8°C (35-46°F), and a remote solution was preferred so staff didn’t have to travel down to the basement every time they had to take a reading. Additionally there were 3 adjacent medical storage units for storing chemical reagents which also required precise monitoring. The hospital also required alarming for all these units to verify full compliance with CAP (College of American Pathologists) regulations in the morgue’s lab. Personnel needed this system fully in place by the time they started using the body cooler, so the installation had to be quick and easy. Although this was a straightforward application, it was difficult to find a cost-effective monitoring system with these features, so the hospital came to CAS DataLoggers to find an economical solution.
