Hand hygiene has long been regarded as the most effective method to prevent healthcare associated infections.
HyGreen provides the first line of defense in the control of healthcare associated infections. This electronic hand hygiene monitoring system not only records all hand hygiene events in the hospital, but it also reminds busy healthcare workers to wash their hands between patients.

 The HyGreen Hand Hygiene Recording and Reminding System is the first and most comprehensive tool to definitively monitor adherence to hand hygiene protocols.

And now, more than ever, improving safety is crucial to your patients and your bottom line.

      • 1.7 million patients are infected by healthcare associated infections each year
      • 270 people each day die from these infections
      • Because hospital stays extended an average of 8 days, HAIs add 13.6 million extra patient days to the burden of patients and hospitals.
      • Federal and state governments, along with private payors, are restricting payments for healthcare associated infection costs to hospitals <!–
      • More than 50% of all hospital associated infections are caused by lack of hand hygiene –>
HyGreen is designed to:
      • Protect patients and staff from HAIs
      • Help lower costs by lowering infections
      • Remind healthcare workers to wash between every patient interaction
      • Save time with comprehensive hand hygiene reporting
      • Eliminate inaccuracies of direct observation

Hospital Pharmacists Love Metro RX Cart at GSHP 2013 Fall Conference

October 17, 2013

ASR attended the GSHP 2013 Fall Conference for Pharmacist Leaders in Georgia.

Metro Logo

They loved the Metro 1770RX and AccessPoint RX Mobile Carts for 3 reasons:

  • SINGLE BIN ACCESS – allows only one drawer to open thus reducing errors and increasing PATIENT SAFETY
  • MICROBAN – anti-microbial prevents spread of bacteria and HAI
  • TOUCHSCREEN to OPEN BINS – saves time with Log In and Opening Bins – THE ULTIMATE IN EFFICIENCY 

Held at the beautiful Brasstown Valley Resort in Young Harris, GA, this annual event is well attended by Healthcare System Pharmacists from all of Georgia . ASR showcased our full line of Mobile Carts, including the new…AccessPoint.  Break out sessions informed and covered many Pharmacy issues and concerns.  It was well planned, organized and smooth running…thanks to the GSHP!

GSHP Conf

 

ASR demonstrated many times, the Single Bin Access on the Metro 1770 RX Cart.  Metro is the only manufacturer that has that feature…one bin opens for one patient.  This Computer on Wheels with RX Module is cutting edge in today’s market.

 

Sharing the spotlight at the show was Win Platt, from our Metro Clinical Products Division, showing his many tools for organization and space-saving with the Pharmacy and Hospital.

Patient Care and Safety – Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI), Infection Control Methods and UL60601

October 1, 2012

Allow me to touch on 2 critical areas of Patient Care and Safety.

Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) are described as: infections not present and without evidence of incubation at the time of admission into a Healthcare System. Infection control policies help reduce the number of HAIs and better patient care.

See my previous blog about Infection Control here:
https://asr4u.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/cows-and-wows-cleaning-and-disinfecting-part-of-maintenance-and-infection-control/

Microban on COWs or WOWs helps too…of course, Flo Healthcare puts Microban into the paint and plastics on their carts. Couple that with Keyboard and Mouse with Microban from Seal Shield, you have greatly reduced the breeding ground for bacteria.

Another big point to cover in Patient Safety is using electronic equipment that is UL60601 certified. That means that any UL60601 medical device has to be safe to have within 6 feet proximity of a patient. UL60601 is in place to keep electonic dicharge from a medical device from reaching a patient. Flo Healthcare Mobile carts are UL60601 certified…not simply stated as compliant. Other COW manufacturers claim their COWs are compliant because each component is certified individually but that still requires in-house certification from those in Biomed. Again, let me state…Flo Healthcare Mobile Carts are UL60601 certified as a complete unit leaving the factory.

Point of Care and Antimicrobial – COWs or WOWs Need Antimicrobial or Microban Keyboard / Mouse

May 5, 2012

Computer on Wheels or Workstation on Wheels are the main component in Point of Care within a Health System. Moving from room to room, these devices can carry and transfer bacteria.

Antimicrobials are materials that are used to restrain the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi that dwell on non-living objects and surfaces, which cause odors and stains.

What parts of a COW or WOW get touched? Keyboards, Mouse, Med Drawers and Cart Handles/Worksurface.

Flo Healthcare puts an Antimicrobial, Microban, into the paint on their COWs. Their Med Drawers also have Microban.

That leaves the Keyboard and Mouse. ASR and Flo now offer a completely washable Keyboard and Mouse that have Antimicrobial built in. These are made by Seal Shield, who are well known for their innovative products for Healthcare.

Call us for a customized plan to keep your COWs or WOWs clean and disinfected!

ASR will help you upgrade to a washable keyboard and mouse with Antimicrobial properties. This is an important step in Infection Control.
