Software Option: Technician Sequencing: "Next Patient" with "Hold the Room" feature.


When the first Technician's Sequence light is pushed it begins to Slow Blink; as others are pushed they go On. The Slow Blink light indicates the next patient to be seen by the technician. When the patient requires further testing in another location, the room is reserved by advancing the light to Fast Blink. Upon the patient's return to the room, the technician advances the Fast Blink to Off and presses the doctor's light to place the patient back into the doctor's "Who's Next?" sequence. See Doctor Sequencing for further information.

Meanwhile, the "Next Patient" advances to Slow Blink, while previously activated lights remain On indicating that patients are waiting for the technician.

Any location in the sequence can be prioritized as "Next Patient" by simply pressing a technician's light twice rapidly; there is no need for a separate switch to achieve patient priority. The Technician Sequencing function may be installed on any momentary switch contained in the system.
