BRENMOOR wristbands to be used inside CAREMagic

BRENMOOR wristbands to be used inside CAREMagic

We are delighted to announce that Brenmoor wristbands will be used inside a new and brilliant mobile application designed by Kodit and distributed by BlueStar.

A suite of easy to use, web enabled care modules, for use in both Hospitals and Community Care.

Each CAREMagic module,  accredited to ISB 1077, addresses a specific set of health procedures/pathways, allowing users to generate auditable proof of outcomes, whilst at the same time both increasing efficiency and reducing cost.

The system allows patent records to be viewed in the field and also for wristband and labels to be printed with patients demographic and GS1 standard barcodes.

Improved blood bag tag design

Improved blood bag tag design

Following the initial success of the first version of the patented Blood Bag tag BRENMOOR have re-designed the product to add even more functionality.

Blood unit identification is an area that is governed by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) and the tag complies with all aspects of their guidance.

As hospitals move to identify units of fluid or blood as efficiently as possible the advantages of the tag are immediately recognisable. They are simple to use and implement are economically priced, print without inks and have no need for luggage tags and string to attach them to the unit of fluid.

The tag includes a number of removable labels and perforated sections, all designed to ensure that the transfusion of the unit is easily, quickly and safely recorded. Each blood bag identification tag is supplied completely blank which allows the individual hospital to design an individual template to print onto the tag.

A number of UK and worldwide hospitals are already using the standard newly designed tag. Brenmoor have also made alterations to the tag and produced bespoke versions for a specific application or method of working after a request from an individual or group of hospitals.

Simple & Brilliant

Simple & Brilliant

BRENMOOR printable wristbands are used in more UK hospitals than any other printable wristbands. On the back of the success of the wristbands Brenmoor have released new products that hospitals now trust and rely on as much as they do the wristbands.

PATscan replicates the patient information held on a wristband onto another wristband or label by simply scanning the barcode. It takes less than a second for the label to print an exact replica of the patient demographic onto this new label. It is quicker and more accurate than hand writing tube or sample labels as the chance of human error is completely removed.

Blood Bag Tag’s are a quick and economical method of identifying the contents of a blood bag whilst at the same time complying with every aspect of the MHRA guidelines. Older methods of identifying the blood bags involved printing labels, sticking them to luggage tags before then securing the luggage tag to the blood bag by either string or cable ties. The blood bag tags can also be used just as succesfully to identify other fluid bags in hospitals such as saline, drugs and food suppliments. There is significent interest in these products from abroad and Brenmoor have applied for world wide patents.

STAB labels are a patented designed to be stuck to human skin without causing any inflamation of the skin. They are fully printable with text and barcodes and can also be used together with PATscan when in theatres and a wristband requires removal.

Michael Moorhouse of BRENMOOR says:

These three products are an exciting addition to our range and continue to help nursing staff, blood banks, pharmacy and labs to cut both costs and time. Bed days will be reduced as a result of hospitals implementing these products which is a massive aim of the NHS.

UK Hospitals to Lose Funding for Committing Preventable Errors

UK Hospitals to Lose Funding for Committing Preventable Errors

The UK’s Department of Health has released a list of 25 unacceptable errors in the NHS, and warned that hospitals will be stripped of funding if they are found to be at fault.

After consulting health partners such as the NHS, health professionals, the Royal Colleges and the public, the department has extended the current list of eight serious preventable errors to 25.

The latest list includes events such as severe harm/death due to transfusing wrong type of blood, severe scalding and severe harm/death due to misidentifying patients by failing to use the standard wristband identification processes.

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said the Government’s aim is to modernise the NHS so that people have the highest quality healthcare, and live healthier, independent lives.

We have identified 25 preventable incidents ‘never events’ which should never happen in a high-quality healthcare service and for which payment can be withheld across the NHS,

Lansley added.

According to department, there were 111 “never events” last year. Medical errors of all kinds are estimated to cost the NHS around £2bn a year.
