Blanket Warmers

by Brad Keyes, CHSP, on Feb 3, 2020 12:00:51 AM

Q: Do we need to post the temperature ranges on the outside of our blanket and fluid warmers?

A: Well… no, I don’t believe you do. But the expectation is everyone using the blanket warmers will know what the maximum and minimum temperature settings are. This needs to be established and approved via policies, and staff needs to know the acceptable ranges.

So, one of the better ways of reminding staff what the acceptable ranges are is posting the temps on the warmer itself. It may not be a requirement and you don’t have to do it, but it may be considered ‘best practice’ to post the temps on the cabinets as a reminder.
