Motorola Solutions unveiled the new disinfectant-ready Symbol CS4070-HC wireless handheld Bluetooth scanner for nurses and lab technicians who will be able to scan both 1D and 2D bar codes at the patient bedside to help prevent errors in medication administration and specimen collection. The CS4070-HC bar code scanner can easily pair with in-room computers, laptops, tablets and workstations-on-wheels (WOWs); and can also work in the “night” mode, limiting the lights and sounds to improve the patient experience.
“Motorola Solutions designed the disinfectant-ready CS4070-HC wireless bar code scanner to meet the needs of both patients and healthcare workers,” said Bob Sanders, senior VP of Data Capture Solutions, Motorola Solutions. “By providing an easy-to-use, pocket-sized bar code scanner that offers superior ergonomics, omni-directional scanning and ‘do not disturb’ modes, Motorola is helping hospitals improve patient safety and the patient experience.”

Its battery holds enough power for a full 12-hour shift with an LED indicator informing healthcare workers how much charge is left.
The CS4070-HC is also durable, sporting an IP52 sealing and a specially designed, disinfectant-ready plastic housing allowing it to be safely wiped down with a variety of chemicals that help prevent the spread of germs.
