Do you have a television in your lobby? If so, what do you play?
This job: no.
Old job: yes. When I started it was Merial's Cesar Milan tape. When I left it was Victoria Stillwell. (Not that I had anything to do with that, honest. It was an anonymous gift...!)
No we do not.
At some of the Emerg hospitals I've visited they did. They either played little segments on their different services or just the local news.
We have a tv in every exam room as well as in the lobby. It varies what they play. The rep who gave us the lobby tv wanted Monsters Inside You playing. But, receptionists said that clients thought it was gross. So, they switched to the Blue Planet videos. They used to play Animal Planet, but the vets disliked the 1-800 pet meds commercials playing..
At holiday times, they played Christmas movies, which people seemed to enjoy.
The only television I've ever seen in a clinic was at the emergency room in the lobby. It just had various cable channels on it. Which is relly nice when you're sitting there for hours.
We tried Monsters Inside You and had people complain and demand we take it off
Right now we have the most boring video ever playing all about ticks. it's the middle of winter. There are no ticks.
I want something that doesn't bore me to death. We do play the radio though.
The only vets that have TVs in the lobby here is the larger of the emergency vets. I think, I'm not even sure about that. I believe they have cable and you can watch TV while waiting. It's been a while since I have been, though
We didn't. Knowing the clinic, though, we'd have probably had some "PRAISE JESUS!" **** playing if we had had one.
We did have a fireplace, though. And a keurig. And a mini fridge with soda and juice boxes.
We do not. Our clients are stuck with Dog Fancy, Cat fancy, and Better Homes & Gardens.
At my old vet, I don't think it's a TV, just a computer monitor in the lobby of ours and one in each of the exam rooms too. They play little short videos on fleas and ticks. I have seen a dental health video playing too. They play without sound on. I sat there one day while waiting for x-ray results watching that stupid flea video like thirty times...
We have one. I have no idea what it plays. Some cheesy prerecorded vet talk show, I think.
Nope. On 9-11 we put a small TV from our breakroom in the lobby for the the day, but that was an exception.
Our lobby is tiny, though, I have no idea where we would even put one as a permanent fixture.
We have a small lobby, but the tv is mounted on the wall in both the lobby and exam rooms.
