Published on

With the growing concern around patient safety, caregiver safety and injuries, and reducing hospital
costs a new solution is needed for intra-hospital transport. Traditional IV poles continue to feed into an
unsafe and costly patient transport process. The Streamline IV Suspension System (ISS) is the solution to
safely and efficiently moving patients in the hospital.

  1. 1. The Problem with Intra-hospital Transportation and Traditional IV Poles 1
  2. 2. The Pain PointHospital caregivers are expected to safely and quickly movepatients…this is what they encounter. 2
  3. 3. This leads to a chain reaction of problems for the hospital, its staff and patients. 3
  4. 4. More and More EquipmentMedical pumps and monitoring devices have become bigger and more cumbersome and the IV poles designed to support them have not kept pace. 4
  5. 5. Today’s intra-hospital patient transportation is based off of principals from the 1950’s 5
  6. 6. Strain on StaffFinite resources are now being used to push patient equipment. Sometimes it takes as many as 4 people to transport a patient…what else could this skilled staff be doing? 6
  7. 7. Negative Patient Outcomes Bloodstream Infection (IV line pulls)• IV line pulls• Increased wait time to receive care• Increased chance of infection 7
  8. 8. The Problem Creates• Workman’s comp claim • Nurse workplace injuries are ranked # 2 in the U.S.• Inefficient use of staff • Pulling nursing and other staff away from patients to help move equipment• Bloodstream infections • 250,000 annually in the U.S. • More than 12% mortality rate Hospitals have to pay these costs! 8
  9. 9. With rising healthcare costs and limited hospitalresources a solution is needed… 9
  10. 10. The Streamline SolutionThe IV Suspension System (ISS) isan intrahospital transport system forpatient equipment that helps reducecosts and increases safety inhospitals• Supports multiple pieces of patientmedical equipment (up to 8 pumps).• Automatically attaches, locks andretracts off of the floor to any brandpatient bed, transport cart, gurney orwheelchair.• Equipment is easily transportedhands-free by one staff member. 10
