What types of printers are being used in Hospital food services?
What types of printers are being used by the food services section of the hospital? Im curious as to how they print the tray tickets for patient meals. Are the laser inkjet printers or thermal printers? If anyone and let me know what they've seen used that would be great! If you know the actual printer model that would be great too!

-----> Do you have a particular software you use to generate/fill out the tickets? <-----
The info below is from one particular healthcare nutrition management software vendor, MenuPlus:
The second paragraph on this page describes how different types of printers can be used:
I also think that perhaps the organization, Association for Healthcare Foodservice, could direct you to an answer. Below is a link with their contact information:
And, lastly, here are a few more resources that might help (from a google search using the search phrase --- "how to print" and "tray tickets" (including the 'and' and the quotation marks):

How to set different printers for specific page sizes?
Here's my situation...
I have 2 printers. 1 of them is loaded completely with A4 paper. The other is loaded completely with A5 paper. Is there a way to set the PC so that ALL A4 pages from any program will print on the A4 printer, and all A5 pages will print on the A5 printer?
Question answered by Denver Al
No, not by page size itself, sorry. You have to select the appropriate printer for the size of paper you want from the program when you choose to print.
What's the difference between inkjet and laser printers?
My school has laser printers and I have an inkjet, what are they and how are they different?
Question answered by InstinctIndustry
Laser printers use toners instead of ink cartridges like inkjet printers do. Laser printers heat up the paper and then send it through the feeder at a faster pace than inkjet, because all they do is attract "ink" from the toners to the correct places on the paper, that's why they're hot when they come out. Inkjet on the other hand, actually blots ink on the paper line by line, that's why if you have to print a diagram it becomes all damp and thin

How do I delete a printer from my list of printers?
I used a wireless printer once a long time ago at a friends house. However, now whenever I try to quick print something it automatically prints to that printer. Or whenever I go to the print menu, I have to switch printers. It is just a real drag because I have ended up accidentally printing things to that printer many many times. How do I get my computer to forget the printer?
I have tried right clicking on it, but nothing happens when I do
Question answered by Helen Young
go to control panel > printers and faxes, from there you can manage your printers. Just right click on the desired printer you wish to remove or select your default printer.
What are the advantages of nonimpact printers, such as laser printers, over impact printers?
What are the advantages of nonimpact printers, such as laser printers, over impact printers? Are there any disadvantages?
Could not find the information I needed for this question I have posed
Question answered by Richard R
Print quality and cost/page are going top be your main differences.
You will get a much higher quality print with no smearing, smudging , or uneven ink with a laser toner printer.
Additionally, ink prices for impact printers can be as much as $0.12-$0.20 per page. Laser toner printer cartridges can be replaced for less than $.02 per page printed, on the high side.

What printers are compatible with a Dell Dimension E510 desktop computer?
My desktop is quite old, and our printer is broken, and we don't want to accidentally buy one that isn't compatible. The stores we have around here are OfficeMax, Kmart and Walmart. Any suggestions on printers that would work with this computer would be great. Thank you!
Question answered by Douglas
Before you go to any store to shop for a printer, you need to know what version of Microsoft Windows you are using.
If you are not sure, go to "start menu", "control panel", then "system".
It should tell you if you are using Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or some other windows.
Now, you are ready to shop. Go to any store and find the cheapest printer that you may like. Then ask any employee there if this printer is compatible w/ your Windows.
That's it. All the above store should offer full refund if the employee misinformed you.
What's the difference between laser printers and inkjet printers?
like i know that laser printers are more effective and they don't smudge when they print, but like do they cost more to fill up than inkjets? any other info on this topic is greatly appreciated
Question answered by yisgood
Unless you absolutely need photo quality, go with a laser. Lasers have sharper text and are generally faster than inkjets. While toner cartridges are more expensive than ink, they print more pages, so the cost per page is lower. But you pay more up front. Inkjets are better for photos. Personally, I use both. I have an inkjet for photos and a color laser for jobs which don't need absolute photo quality.
You can get a good color laser today for $80! Samsung CLP-300 at http://www.staples.com/office/supplies/p16__200401_Business_Supplies_10051_true_SEARCH
I have this printer and it's really nice. Toner cartridges are more expensive then inkjet cartridges ($70 for a set of 4 at http://ccs-digital.com/ink.asp ) but they last for about 2,000 pages.It does a nice job on photos, but an inkjet is still better for this.
Inkjet: As someone who was in the computer hardware business for years (though I rarely sold printers since I couldn't compete with the crazy rebates) I have always recommended Epson. The print quality is excellent, even on plain paper. I have photos I printed on a 640 about ten years ago hanging in my office which still look good, though not as good as the ones from the CX8400 on glossy paper. The warranty is excellent. For a year, Epson will express-ship a replacement and pick up the old one. I had one customer who needed this. He called one afternoon and had the replacement two days later. Another client bought a Canon. It needed two repairs within a few months. Each time it was taken to the repair center, then picked up a few days later. This client runs a specialty printing business and this really hurt. They have since bought an Epson CX5000 and have had no down time since.
The C120 (printer only - no scanner) is on sale at Ritz Camera free after rebate but you must also buy a digital camera. The cheapest is $15. With $7 shipping you pay $22 for printer and camera. It uses 3 colors and 2 of the SAME black cartridge.
A set of 5 cartridges are $23 at http://ccs-digital.com/ink.asp
The RX595 scanner/copier/printer also prints on DVDs. It uses 5 colors plus black and has high photo quality. It was on sale at Ritz Camera for $45 after rebate with digital camera. They no longer seem to have the printer, though the rebate is good to the end of the month, so maybe they'll get more in. The printer is $130. The cheapest camera is $15 bringing the total to $145. Then there is $100 rebate and free shipping, bringing the final cost to $45. http://www.ritzcamera.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SearchView?storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&langId=-1&keyword=rx595&x=40&y=10 A set of 7 cartridges (1 extra black) is $30 at http://ccs-digital.com/ink.asp
What device do I need to hook up two computers to two printers?
I have a desk top and a laptop. I want to hook them up to two printers , a laser printer and a photo printer.. The desk top will be hooked in all the time and the lap top . I will have a usb cord which will plug into the port as needed.
Question answered by Matt
The best solution for your setup would probably be to add those two printers
to a network (i.e. connect them on your network with wired or wireless connection).
Once you do that any computer in your home network will be able to access
and print to any networked printer. Otherwise you will just have to unplug and
move the printer you want to use from one computer to the other all the time.
If your printers do not have a network Ethernet interface do not worry. There
many product called USB printer servers that extend your printer so it can
be fully networked.
How do I set up two printers to one computer?
I have two printers, one is a standard printer, the other is a plotter (a plan printer). I would like to set up both to the same computer, but the plug that you connect directly to the computer is already taken by the standard printer. How do I set up both?
Question answered by richard_mcdaniel_2005
your computer should have usb ports. you can use one of them to run the second printer.
if you are using all of the ports already than get a small hub and that will give you more ports.
I bought one at wall-mart for around $12.00
it should install itself after connecting. and you will be ready to go.
