Easy View™ IV Tube Separator Fulfills Joint Commission Recommendation on Tubing Misconnections
Patient Safety Proven to Improve with IV Tube Organizer
Stow, OH – Some of the most dangerous aspects of healthcare in hospitals are often also the most overlooked and disregarded, which creates an even greater level of danger and a larger chance of deadly accidents. Right near the top of the list is tubing misconnections, which the Easy View™ IV tube separator is designed to quickly and conveniently prevent, saving lives and improving hospital treatment.
The Joint Commission has issued a report on tubing misconnections in hospitals and labeled the mishap as “a persistent and potentially deadly occurrence.” The report cited nine cases, eight of which led to death and the last of which led to permanent loss of function.
According to the report, “Tubing and catheter misconnection errors are an important and under-reported problem in healthcare organizations.” Registered Nurse Tammy Downs saw the potential for danger and complications with IV tubes firsthand in her work, and took action by creating the Easy View IV tube organizer.
The Easy View IV tubing holder can hold and separate six IV tubes at once, giving each IV line its own slot, and locking it into place. It easily attaches to a patient’s bed rails, and has space for labels on top of each IV line.
This drastically reduces the chances for a costly and potentially deadly mistake while providing treatment for patients in hospitals, and it makes the jobs of nurses and hospital staff that much easier. It also aligns perfectly with the Joint Commission’s recommendations on how to prevent such mishaps – “labeling all tubes and catheters.”
In addition, the Easy View IV tube separator also matches the second recommendation of “color-coding tubes and catheters.” The Easy View is produced in several different colors, and therefore patients can receive an IV tube organizer that instantly alerts all nurses, doctors and staff to any major allergies, pre-existing treatments or conditions and more, depending on the circumstance or desired meaning.
Preventable mistakes should never happen, and certainly not when lives are on the line. That’s what the Easy View IV tube separator is designed for, as it instantly resolves the problem of tubing misconnections.
