In the OR, the right PPE product must be available at the right place and at the right time
Neenah, WI (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
TIDI Products, LLC, a leading manufacturer of clinically differentiated, single-use, infection-prevention products, today announced its participation in the 2015 OR Manager Conference, an annual, executive-level conference on running today’s surgical and operating room (OR) suite. This, the 28th OR Manager event, takes place in Nashville, Tennessee—at the Gaylord Opryland—from October 7, 2015 to October 9, 2015.
The OR Manager Conference gathers more than 1,400 healthcare professionals involved in surgical-suite management—including OR directors and managers, OR business managers, perioperative nursing directors, and other decision makers—for continuing education, expert networking, and direct interaction with leading solution providers. Attendees discuss best practices in OR safety, efficiency, sterilization and infection control, collaborative approaches, finances, as well as current standards and regulations.
Staff protection, and personal protective equipment (PPE), fall under a number of topics at the OR Manager Conference. Splashes and sprays of blood and body fluid commonly occur in a surgical suite. Less commonly accepted, however, is the frequency and risk associated with ocular infectious-disease pathogen exposure. Splash, spray, or direct contact exposure into staff conjunctiva of the eye can be scary, costly—even deadly. And, yet, eye-related infection risk is easily preventable. In the OR, the right PPE product must be available at the right place and at the right time.
To facilitate improved PPE compliance and, thereby, improved infection control in the surgical suite, TIDI Products offers the TIDI Tower™, a proprietary dispensing system designed to mount at point-of-use for easy access to single-use protective eyewear. Each dispenser contains 25 fully assembled TIDIShield® Grab ‘n Go™ Disposable Eye Shields. By placing the TIDI Tower next to mask and glove stations, OR managers can simply and effectively better protect staff.
TIDI Products also offers the performance benefits of an innovative turn-key program designed to directly diminish the risks OR staff face on a daily basis. The TIDIShield™ EyeSplash Zero™ program encourages eye-splash prevention through rapid, quality education, process improvement, and best-practice product adoption. Program implementation results in improved risk awareness, reduced risk exposure, and greater staff compliance.
