By Medline Newsroom Staff | October 23, 2018

Medline will unveil a new Discovery Hub starting Oct. 24 in Denver during the ANCC National Magnet Conference. Each day, the hands-on immersion lab will encourage clinicians to see, experience and evaluate some of the hottest innovations surrounding infection prevention, staff and patient safety and incontinence care.  Solutions are intuitively designed with clinical behavior and patient outcomes in mind to limit room for error. The Medline Discovery Hub will be showcased at the conference exhibit hall at booth 547.

  • Simplify and Standardize with Kits: Process standardization can promote a culture of safety. That’s why kits are taking center stage at the Discovery Hub on Wednesday. Medline experts dive into nonventilator hospital-acquired pneumonia (NV-HAP) and how to reduce oral care risk factors for what’s quickly becoming one of the most common health care-associated infections that has no current mandates to report or monitor cases. Additionally, clinicians can check out a high risk admission kit specifically designed to reduce pressure injuries.

  • Safe Staff, Patients and Surfaces: Experts estimate one million patients fall in the hospital each year, and nearly half result in an injury. Thursday visitors can experience the first comprehensive solution aimed at addressing quality and safety among patients and caregivers. An intuitive approach to surface cleaning and disinfection will also be featured to help break the chain of infection.

Friday, Oct. 26

  •  New Approach to Continence Care: New innovations are coming to market to help clinicians with the more than 25 million people in the U.S. that experience bladder leakage every day. The final day at Magnet will take a closer look at a new male external urinary device and underpad technology that can alert clinicians in real time when a patient has voided.

“Powerful things can happen when you fuse clinician insight with industry scalability. We owe it to patients to develop and implement evidence-based strategies to improve care and outcomes,” says Rosie Lyles, MD, clinical affairs director, Medline.
