By placing the TIDI Tower next to mask and glove stations, hospitals can simply and effectively better protect staff.
Neenah, WI (PRWEB) September 08, 2015
TIDI Products, LLC, a leading manufacturer of clinically differentiated, single-use, infection-prevention products, today announced its participation in the AOHP 2015 National Conference, sponsored by the Association of Occupational Health Professionals in Healthcare (AOHP) and occurring at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco, California, from September 9-12, 2015.
AOHP (http://www.aohp.org) is dedicated to the health, safety, and well-being of healthcare workers; it is the sole, national, professional organization committed to addressing the needs and concerns of occupational health professionals in healthcare settings. Occupational health professionals oversee employee care; they advocate policies that reduce hazards and create safer, healthier working environments. More than 1,000 occupational health nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, and physician assistants belong to AOHP. The annual national conference is a venue for learning, sharing, and best-practice adoption. The 2015 event, tagged “Bridging Innovation and Knowledge for Best Practice Development,” precisely highlights the positive impact pioneering new technologies, product developments, and solution applications can deliver in a healthcare setting—helping to limit risk to health, safety, and well-being.
Non-sharp blood and body fluid exposures to the eye are the most common form of occupational, infectious-disease, pathogen exposure—and among the most risky. Splashes and sprays into staff conjunctiva can be scary, costly, and even deadly—and, yet, eye-related infection risks are easily preventable. Because many healthcare environments remain under-informed about conjunctiva infection transmission, many healthcare workers remain unnecessarily at risk. To help occupational health and safety professionals to better address employee risk, at AOHP 2015, TIDI Products will showcase the TIDI Tower™, a proprietary dispensing system designed to mount at point-of-use for easy access to 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, hospitals can simply and effectively better protect staff. The TIDI Tower is ideal for use in operating and emergency rooms, labor and delivery, and intensive care and burn units.
At AOHP 2015, TIDI Products also will demonstrate the performance benefits of an innovative occupational health and safety program designed to directly diminish dangers healthcare workers face on a daily basis. The TIDIShield™ EyeSplash Zero™ program encourages eye-splash prevention through education, process improvement, and best-practice product adoption. Implementation of the program results in heightened risk awareness, reduced risk exposure, and greater PPE compliance. To learn more about the TIDI Tower, TIDIShield Grab ‘n Go Disposable Eye Shields, and the TIDIShield EyeSplash Zero program, visit TIDI Products on September 10th and 11th in AOHP 2015 Exhibitor Booth #34.
