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.

  • Icon-Covid-Checklist

    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.


$250K Per Year To the Bottom Line

Adding MedLite ID converts a daily loss to a daily savings

  • 56% of ADEs are Infusion Related

  • $6600 Average ADE Costs Per Event
  • 15% of Infusion ADE = Wrong Route Errors
  • Cost/day of $2883 of each unplanned inpatient day
  • Average medical malpractice claim $242K
  • 2% risk of Mortality from ADE

What is the cost of doing nothing?  At even a smaller, 200-bed hospital, we can convert an estimated $620,000 annual loss in direct costs from infusion ADE to $490,000 per year in savings after paying for the MedLite ID solution.  That does not factor in the significant liability avoidance from medical practice or wrongful death, with a solution that can be deployed in less than 1/2 a day.  

  • Based on literature rates of infusion ADE, a 100-bed hospital is projected to be at-risk for 22  infusion ADEs annually.
  • This is an annual loss of $310K in direct costs from infusion ADE- a loss that can be avoided.
  • After paying for MedLite ID, a net $245K in savings is possible.
