Hospital-acquired infections (HAI) can have a significant patient safety, efficiency and financial impact on your hospital. Standardizing to a single-patient-use blood pressure cuff workflow where each patient gets a new disposable blood pressure cuff is a simple way to help reduce cross-contamination risks and enhance patient safety. Welch Allyn is the only company with two unique technology options to help you implement a single-patient-use cuff workflow.
For more information on reducing cross-contamination, or to request a copy of the American Journal of Infection Control's research paper: "Implementation of Disposable Blood Pressure Cuffs as a Novel Approach to Reduce Fomite Transmission of Healthcare-Associated Clostridium difficile Infection in a Community Hospital", please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each hospital-acquired infection costs a hospital nearly $40,000.* Standardizing cuffs to a single-patient-use model can help reduce the risk of cuff-related cross-contamination, streamline inventory management, and improve clinical workflow—advancements that will make a positive impact on your bottom line.
“System-wide standardization with Welch Allyn Cuffs enabled us to reduce SKUs by over 90%. This has conservatively saved the hospital system nearly $140k each year in excess inventory and related acquisition costs.”
Managing consolidation and change—the process of choosing the right blood pressure cuffs, determining the right conversion method, and implementing the change—must be carefully handled.
Our experience, comprehensive product line, and conversion options ensure that we can optimize the clinical and financial benefits at your facility. Our conversion teams handle the process, from consultation to implementation, to make the transition smooth and painless.
FlexiPort cuff standardization technology is an innovative, easy-to-use connection technology that helps you control costs. The single-point FlexiPort connection is a practical innovation that enables virtually any device to work with Welch Allyn FlexiPort blood pressure cuffs—without the hassle of traditional cuff tubes and connectors. FlexiPort technology is available on three unique cuff styles to cover every area of your hospital: reusable, disposable, and the new single-patient FlexiPort EcoCuff™.
FlexiPort offers options that help reduce the risk of cross-contamination and facilitate proper cuff sizing.
FlexiPort simplifies cuff standardization to reduce excess inventory costs by as much as $140k.***
Non-latex cuffs in a full range of sizes that meet applicable AAMI standards.**
Range of choices that can help reduce environmental impact by more than 60%.****
Traditional single-patient-use cuff solutions can be expensive, wasteful, and difficult to implement. The innovative EcoCuff design helps hospitals reduce the risk of cross-contamination with technology that makes it simple to implement a single-patient-use cuff model, while at the same time helping to control costs and the hospital's environmental impact.
Standardization with Trimline technology offers a proven, dependable connection technology that clinicians know and trust. Using traditional tube-and-connector configurations, facilities that standardize on Trimline will experience minimal impact on nursing workflow.
Traditional y-tube standardization can help reduce the risk of cross-contamination in a single-patient-use cuff model.
