Conserve Personal Protective Equipment
The COVID-19 pandemic forced healthcare facilities to rethink their standard operating protocols when treating infectious and immunocompromised patients without sacrificing quality of care. Facilities are relocating equipment traditionally contained within the patient room such as IVs, Infusion Pumps, and patient monitoring equipment, into the corridor to conserve personal protective equipment (PPE) and reduce the frequency of contact between nurses and infected patients. This move also protects against trip and fall hazard from monitoring cables and tubes running under foot through the door threshold.
Prioritizing Patient & Staff Safety While Managing Risk
The Clinician Patient Access Device allows clinical staff to provide patient services safely from the corridor, reducing the frequency of staff/patient interaction. Healthcare veterans can attest to the severity of trip and fall incidents injuring patients and staff, increasing recovery times and facilities liability. Discreetly wall mounted and easily accessible, these devices avoid running lines, wires, cords, or cables through door openings or beneath patient room doors where they present a trip hazard to staff entering and exiting the room.
Additionally, the potential for damage or blockage of IV lines due to foot traffic or door closure is reduced when deploying CPAD’s in remote IV configurations. Occlusion of IV lines disrupt the flow of medications, disrupting patient recovery while consuming more in demand nursing staff time constantly revisiting and resetting infusion pumps to clear blockages.
Clinician Patient Access Device
The Clinician Patient Access Device (CPAD) is a maintenance free self-sealing pass through for carrying patient services through corridor walls in Health care occupancies. The devices self-sealing membranes and intumescent technology automatically adjust as services are added or removed while still maintaining fire, smoke, and acoustical seals.Watch More Videos
Infectious Patient Care Firestop Applications
The Clinician Patient Access Devices have a compact design that installs flush with wall surfaces and does not project into the corridor or patient room, making it fully ADA compliant. The molded thermoplastic body and integrated silicone rubber gaskets can be easily sanitized using normal cleaning protocols.
- Each device is fitted with self-sealing silicone rubber gaskets to ensure that the lines, wires, cords, or cables are sealed to block air, contaminants, and noise. There are no sharp edges to pierce or slice the integrity of the inserted lines. Simply push the temporary service through the device, and it quickly and automatically seals.
As referenced by the Society of Critical Care Medicine, reconfiguring ICU’s for pandemic response
is necessary to protect healthcare workers, and patients alike. And, relocating critical services outside the patient room is a major priority.
