By placing the TIDI Tower next to mask and glove stations, OR managers can simply and effectively better protect staff and increase compliance
Neenah, WI (PRWEB) October 15, 2015
TIDI Products, LLC (http://www.TIDIProducts.com), a leading manufacturer of clinically differentiated, single-use, infection-prevention products, today announced its participation in the 2015 ASHRM Annual Conference and Exhibition (http://www.ashrm.org/education/annual_conference2015/index.dhtml), taking place in Indianapolis, Indiana, from October 18, 2015 through October 21, 2015.
The 35th annual gathering of the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management (ASHRM), this year’s conference will spotlight a “Driving Safe and Trusted Healthcare” theme for approximately 2,000 professionals involved in healthcare risk management. More than 70 educational sessions will occur, including tracks relating to claims/litigation, legal and regulatory matters, clinical/patient safety, quality leadership development, healthcare operations, and risk financing.
Staff protection, and personal protective equipment (PPE), fall under a number of ASHRM 2015 educational tracks. A New Innovation Center at the 2015 ASHRM Annual Conference and Exhibition also will feature ASHRM member success stories in decreasing or eliminating preventable serious safety events, decreasing or eliminating hospital-acquired conditions and readmissions, improving quality, enhancing patient safety, and implementing “Just Culture” innovations.
As part of exhibition efforts, TIDI Products will demonstrate the benefits of increased attention to eye-related infection risks. 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. 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. Many healthcare environments remain under-informed about conjunctiva infection transmission realities; therefore, many healthcare staff remain unnecessarily at risk. The right protective eyewear must be available at the right place and at the right time.
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 and increase compliance. TIDI Products also offers the performance benefits of an innovative turn-key program designed to directly diminish risks staff face daily. 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.
