Baxa Corporation Features PadLock®Set Saver at the ANCC National Magnet Conference
October 15, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsEnglewood, Colo. – Baxa Corporation is promoting its new PadLock Set Saver at the ANCC National Magnet Conference, October 15-17, in Salt Lake City. An aseptic IV administration set storage solution, PadLock provides a secure seal for the end of the administration set, preventing contamination when the set is not being used for infusion. Effective for multiple uses, the Set Saver attaches to an IV administration set and replaces the need for sterile, single-use caps. During the three-day exhibition, the Baxa sales team will demonstrate the new device at booth #613.
The ANCC, which sponsors the national conference, is the world's largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization and gives exposure through this venue to more than 5500 highly qualified nurses. This conference supports excellence in nursing and promotes quality patient care. The innovative PadLock Set Saver is designed to foster best practice for aseptic IV administration set maintenance, preventing touch contamination and securing the IV line between drug administrations.
