It prevents interrup- tions and sends a powerful message to patients and professionals that patient dignity and privacy is a pri- ority in your center. You can easily adjust the sign height on the pole, and you can store the sign at the nurses' sta- tion when not in use. Construction is easy: Punch 2 holes at the top of a laminated sign and rip tie loops to quickly convert any rolling IV pole into a stop sign you can position in front of a curtain.
