While IV procedures continue to save lives and restore good health for many patients, the current infusion sets are not equipped to insure that expired lines are changed promptly. That is exactly why an inventor from Tenafly, N.J., decided to rectify that situation.
She developed a prototype for SAFELINE to improve patient safety for those being treated with intravenous (IV) procedures. As such, it provides professional health care workers with a visible reminder to change and discard an expired IV line. Thus, it keeps medical facilities in compliance with The Joint Commission regulations in regard to use of IV lines. At the same time, this novel invention is efficient, practical and easy to use. Other appealing features are convenience, effectiveness and an affordable price. It is, therefore, ideal for use by all medical facilities.
The inventor’s professional experience inspired the idea. “Working as a professional nurse for over six years, I identified a commonly missed procedure in direct violation of The Joint Commission regulations,” she said.
The original design was submitted to the New Jersey office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
