Best Practices for multiple IV co-administration infusions.
From AHRQ: An Inadvertent Bolus of Norepinephrine. Administration of multiple IV infusions is ubiquitous in the ICU, and there are several established safety parameters associated with medication concentration, dosing, and pump programming. The physical dexterity required for administering multiple IV infusions concurrently is underappreciated, and lack thereof can, in fact, lead to serious harm. AHRQ addressed this issue in a recent article, including recognizing risks associated with medication administration, the most frequent types of IV medical errors in the ICU, and best practices for the co-administration of multiple IV infusions.

MedLite ID & Infectious Disease
Reduce exposure to infectious disease by up to two hours per day per 12-hour shift. Not marketing math, simple math...
Healthcare workers can be exposed more often due to numerous infected individuals. Reducing the frequency and intensity of exposure to infectious diseases list MRSA or SARs-CoV-2 might reduce the infectious dose and result in less severe cases.
MedLite ID takes a minutes procedure and turns it into seconds to identify and trace key infusion lines. Doing that every 1-2 hours for multiple patients adds up. The ability to identify key infusion lines and reduce exposure protects both the patient and nurse alike. MedLite can also be used with extension tubing to further reduce exposure.
$1,500 Per Day Savings
Adding MedLite ID converts a daily loss to a daily savings
- 78% of ADE Costs Not Reimbursed
- 56% of ADEs are Infusion Related
- 19 ADEs per 1000 ICU Patient Days
- 17+ Drugs Per Day in ICU
- $2,200 Lost per Day per 100 Beds

Avoid $2,200 Lost Per DayRequest a Trial
What is the cost of doing nothing? We can convert an estimated $2,200 loss per day to $1,500 per day in savings after paying for the MedLite ID solution.
- A 100-bed hospital could experience about 153 infusion ADEs annually.
- This is an annual loss of $790K - a loss that can be avoided.
- After paying for MedLite ID, a net $500K+ in savings is possible.
