Yard managers care about it because time spent hunting for misplaced vehicles saps yard productivity and even leads to incomplete shipments. Increasingly, vehicle yards are investing in location intelligence to ..read more

A nurse in the middle of a busy shift enters a room on a routine visit to take a patient’s vitals. She’s immediately confronted by the patient’s spouse, who’s irate about the medications the patient was given.

She doesn’t know whether the incident will escalate, but she knows one thing: She doesn’t feel safe. These kinds of workplace violence incidents against nurses are on the rise, and hospitals are responding with new measures to protect their staff. Some ..read more
