UV Sterilizer Technology
Research shows that Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) kill at least 270 people daily, costing hospitals about $40,000 for each infected patient. One of the most common and easily preventable ways HAIs spread is through constantly touching surfaces (ex., stethoscopes, phones, oximeters, blood pressure cuffs, etc.). New technology like ultraviolet (UV) sanitizing systems kill bacteria on contact to protect patients from infectious diseases.
Pass-through patient room cabinets are called nurse servers and store essential supplies and medications at the point of use. These innovative pass-through type cabinets are built into patient room walls. Nurse servers allow medical supplies and medications to be stocked outside the patient’s room, reducing the patient’s exposure to infections. Nurse servers also allow nurses to spend less time retrieving supplies and more time providing quality care to patients.
High-Density Sterile Storage
High-density shelving and automated carousels keep sterile supplies well-organized and clean in the central sterile supply storage area and operating rooms. In addition, these storage systems offer twice as much storage capacity as traditional storage systems, providing maximum space efficiency while improving the quality of patient care.
Sterile Processing Storage Racks
Sterile processing storage racks reduce the risk of contamination of instrument kits. These racks eliminate touching of the instrument kits after sterilization until they arrive in the operating room. In addition, to protecting instrument kits, the racks organize kits to save time and space.
