Medication in Schools: Why Synchronized Time Is Vital

Posted by Aron Levandowski on Apr 24, 2019 11:29:25 AM

That's likely only scratching the surface, but you probably aren't responsible for making sure dozens of kids are taking their vital medication on time throughout the day. Unless you're a school nurse. Nurses don't just take temperatures and soothe upset stomachs all day; they're tasked with keeping a meticulous schedule for administering any medication that the students might require.

Posted by Aron Levandowski on Apr 10, 2019 12:40:07 PM

It started with the TV remote, then the cordless phone, then the Wi-Fi router and the Bluetooth speakers. The wires that used to tether us to the rest of the world are slowly disappearing – and for good reason.

Posted by Aron Levandowski on Oct 11, 2017 9:29:00 AM

In the synchronized clock industry, there are a lot of options to choose from if you’re considering a build out or upgrade to your facility.
