CME Medical to aid hospices with ambulatory syringe driver upgrades

30th September 2013

CME Medical is calling on hospices across the country to take the initiative making the transition from using older ambulatory syringe drivers to newer models that meet the latest regulatory requirements.

As part of Hospice Care Week – which runs from October 7th to 13th 2013 – the company is encouraging facilities to upgrade to its T34 Ambulatory Syringe Pump to help meet National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) guidance.

A recent report from the NPSA highlighted several issues connected with older types of syringe drivers – such as inaccurate measurements and settings – which can cause patient safety issues, with CME Medical's T34 addressing all of these problems.

The aim of this initiative is to help healthcare organisations to manage the challenges associated with transitioning from long-established equipment to a new ambulatory syringe driver.

John Carrington, managing director for CME Medical, said: "We have already helped over 50 percent of UK NHS trusts through the process and are keen to offer the same support to our hospices and help them give the best care possible to their patients.”

Hospice Care Week is held every year by Help the Hospices, a charity organisation that offers support to hospice and palliative care professionals across the UK.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801643775-ADNFCR
