You are charged with ensuring that your staff have the tools and education they need to properly care for their patients. Stryker equipment and support can help in your efforts.
Day and night, and month to month, staff is constantly changing. Healthcare equipment has to be easy for caregivers to use so they can focus on patient care – not how to lower the siderail of the stretcher. Simple, intuitive operation is a trademark of Stryker Patient Care products
. To ensure that our products
are as straightforward and effortless as possible, we partner with caregivers to design them. This design philosophy provides great insight into the natural tendencies of the end-user, so we can determine where efficiencies can be gained, operation can be simplified and technological advances can be made.
We innovate to make caregivers’ day-to-day jobs easier so they can focus on delivering exceptional patient care. That’s why we created optional features like the Lift Assist Backrest, integrated scales, four-sided brake/steer pedals, advanced mobility solutions and more for our beds
. These meaningful innovations simplify the delivery of patient care, which positively influences patient satisfaction and outcomes.
When you purchase Stryker equipment, you are also gaining a partner through the life of the product. Stryker will work with you and your staff during installation, and will conduct thorough training to ensure your staff is comfortable and able to use the product.
At Stryker, we believe that with the right technology and processes in place, adverse and never events can be prevented, and patient outcomes can improve. Based on this idea, we were the first to market with solutions like the Chaperone Bed Exit System, which alerts caregivers if patients attempt to leave the bed – a useful tool for fall- or flight-risk patients.
Stryker Surfaces also offer a variety of preventive skin care solutions. IsoGel Air isolates the three key contributors to skin breakdown: pressure, shear and micro-climate imbalance. Isolibrium features pressure redistribution and position assistance to help prevent and treat pressure ulcers.
In addition, Stryker Patient Care offers a Fall Prevention Programme and a Pressure Ulcer Prevention Programme that works in conjunction with your facility’s protocols to improve patient outcomes.
