How to prevent falls in healthcare facilities is a key question caregivers are asking to in an effort reduce hospital readmissions.

Posted by on Jun 20, 2018 | 0 comments

Since falls are cited by hospital admissions administrators as the number one reason for readmission, this critical concern merits more attention for you and your loved one.  According to AARP, “One third of adults 65 and older fall once a year.” That is a number we would like to see drastically reduced.

One of Nurse Assist’s founding products, the “Fall Watch,” has been an industry leader in doing just that. We found that preventing vs. reacting has been the difference maker. The Fall Watch II is a straight forward design that uses wireless digital technology to alert when a patient is starting to position themselves to get out of bed. It works independently from the normal nurse call system; however, it can work in conjunction with it too, if desired.

If you would like more details on how our system can help your facility reduce falls, please contact us at Sales@nurseassist.com.

Who is watching your budget?

Posted by on Jun 15, 2018 | 0 comments

Nurse Assist, Inc. was once told at a meeting that, “ In this business, pennies are the size of man hole covers!” Over the past 19 years we have implemented programs that allowed distributors and facilities to utilize our fall management program products without any capital expenditure. We have implemented cost reductions on products to help combat rising prices to patients. Our distributors asked for new pricing structures, so we created the “Double V” program, Value with Volume. The list goes on and on with programs that we have created in an effort to achieve a common goal of going beyond the extra mile for our clients and their customers. If you would like more details on our programs, please let us know.

 

Thank you.

Why Nurse Assist continues to manufacture a safe and reliable Prefilled Saline IV Flush Syringe.

Posted by on Apr 17, 2018 | 0 comments

Nurse Assist has been a Medical Device manufacturer since 1999, with a specialty in water and saline products (irrigation solutions, prefilled syringes, wound flushes, etc.) In the 18+ years of manufacturing the highest quality products, Nurse Assist has always maintained one of its core values… Patient Safety.

As many of you know, there has been a need for another manufacturer to step up in a large way when it comes to the “saline” prefilled market. The allocations and backorders of injectable saline has plagued the industry for 4+ years. When we first evaluated the product and made it an internal project, we knew the importance it would have on the medical industry, not just in the sense of helping to put some relief on the current manufacturers, but because our valuable distributor partners urged us to do so.

To help a fast-growing market (estimated growth 2015-2020 CAGR 20.2%), we have developed a highly automated and vertically integrated system for our IV Flush Syringes that follows the strictest USP standards. Since the product release in January of 2017 Nurse Assist has been a new and upcoming strategic partner to many large distributors worldwide. “Nurse Assist has been extremely reliable and cost competitive in a growing market!” said one of our current distributors.

If you need a quote for your current IV Flush business or you would like to add this product to your growing portfolio, we would love to discuss the opportunities.

Thank You

NURSE ASSIST EXPANSION OF SALINE/WATER PRODUCTS INTO DENTAL MARKET

Posted by on Jan 16, 2017 | 0 comments

Our company has recently experienced an increased number of calls from dental products distributors/manufacturers inquiring about our sterile water and saline products. The two main concerns expressed are 1) availability of product, and 2) interest in switching from distilled water to sterile water.

1) Allocation has been an industry-wide problem that distributors have been dealing with for the past few years; however at Nurse Assist, we have actually increased our production capacity to meet these new demands and more.

Immediate benefits to you:
• Protection from the effects of allocation, boosting your customer retention.

2) interest in switching from distilled water to sterile water

• Distilled water is water turned into clean steam vapor which is condensed and then passed through an organic filter.

• Sterile water is water that goes through an advanced multistage United States Pharmacopeia (USP) process and meets the strict standards listed in the USP monograph. This advanced multistage process is a true water purification system using Reverse Osmosis (RO) in addition to seven other steps that include Gamma Sterilization, not just a water treatment process.

Immediate benefits to you:
• Higher standard of care for the health and safety of patients.

Would you or your customers benefit from our sterile water/normal saline products? Here at Nurse Assist we want to be a valuable partner to companies aiming for the highest standard of customer satisfaction and striving to grow their business. Call us today.

4th Quarter Orders in 2016

Posted by on Oct 18, 2016 | 0 comments

In recent years we have sent out notifications to our customers in Q4 reminding of the inventory demand/supply issues during the upcoming holiday season heading into the year-end and Q1 winter months.
Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and our annual year-end shutdown, there are far fewer shipping days this quarter, yet it is one of the busiest in demand for medical devices. With the ever-increasing online holiday shopping, even the freight companies are already issuing warnings. Last year it took us far into January to catch up with the strong year-end and Q1 demand.
This year we want to send this reminder early, as there are several factors not in our control that attribute to longer lead times during this time of year:
• Other manufacturers of sterile water and saline are dealing with allocation issues which has increased our demand and is expected to cause larger than normal spikes.
• Inclement weather is always a wild card that may cause delays in shipping.
• There are less days to ship due to holiday schedule.
Due to First-In-First-Out (FIFO) order processing, please plan on increasing lead times, and send in orders sooner rather than later. Keeping extra days’ supply on-hand of critical sterile water and saline products will help all of our customers.
Our materials and production capacity are both running strong to take care of you, and we want to give you the best position in the marketplace.
We appreciate your business and your patience and look forward to serving your needs.
Thank you,
