System Transfers Patient IV Equipment
BERCHTOLD Corporation introduces an automated No Touch Transfer System, NTTS, which facilitates safe, quick and easy movement of a patient’s IV equipment and fluids throughout a hospital facility. The NTTS utilizes the lifting and lowering mechanisms of the hospital bed or boom to transfer an integrated IV pole between locations without the need for manual movement of equipment or fluids. To complete a transfer, nursing staff simply rotates the articulating transfer arms and then raises or lowers the bed or boom to secure the IV pole on the receiving transfer arm. Within 30 seconds the patient, their IV equipment and fluids are ready to be moved.
The NTTS can move the IV apparatus from ER to OR to ICU and through to Recovery with only one person needed to complete the transfer. The integrated IV pole folds behind the bed for easy elevator transport.
- A patent pending internal locking mechanism which releases the integrated IV pole from the bed or boom only when the receiving arm is fully engaged; this ensures patient and staff safety.
- The ability for the system to automatically self-adjusts and secures the IV pole for hands-free movement of the equipment and materials from the mobile IV stand to the bed. This eliminates the need for staff to physically move IV bags and pumps each time a patient is transported.
- The ability to hold up to 100 pounds of equipment and is available with single or triple IV options.
- Compatibility with all leading hospital beds and includes a rolling stand for wheelchair or ambulatory patients.
