CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY #1

    Challenge

    Find a way to help breast cancer patients after surgery.

    Solution

    A medical center in the South noticed breast cancer patients were having trouble with their drains after surgery. Drains include tubes that keep fluid from collecting in incision areas, which helps promote healing. A nurse for the medical group thought Positive Promotions’ Lanyards could help. She had the Lanyards personalized with the medical group’s contact information. Patients could clip the Lanyard to their drains and, if any problems occurred, the center’s number would be right there for them to call. Using the Lanyards has been a big hit with cancer patients, the nurse said.

Receiving the gift bags was truly a blessing to clients, the coordinator of the gift-giving said.

CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY #6

    Challenge

    Show patients the importance of getting blood pressure screenings.

    Solution

    A hospital in the South has used Positive Promotions’ "Know Your Numbers Recorder" Pocket Pal at health-related events. One woman’s blood pressure was extremely high, which a hospital worker marked in the woman’s Pocket Pal. The hospital worker encouraged the woman to see her doctor right away. Two months later, the woman tracked down the hospital worker to offer her appreciation. She did go to her doctor, who immediately put her on blood pressure medication. The woman never realized it was her blood pressure that made her feel so bad, but now the woman has the energy to exercise and enjoy activities she couldn’t before, a representative from the hospital said.
