Health Robotics' i.v.STATION Certified as the Only Robot to Comply with Security Guidelines for Controlled Substances
Date:5/10/2010

Diversion of controlled substances is recognized as a critical problem in the United States. Healthcare professionals have easy access to controlled substances, and according to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, approximately 15% of healthcare professionals struggle with drug dependence. Drug diversion at hospitals can occur with PRNs [when part or none of the medication is given to the patient exactly on schedule during the shift]. A nurse who worked at the V.A Medical Center in Bedford, Somerville Hospital, and Metro West Medical Center-Framingham was sentenced because she stole numerous controlled substances from these hospitals. A few years ago, an emergency room nurse at Champlain Valley Physician's Hospital, N.Y., stole a number of controlled substances, including morphine and methadone, from the hospital's pharmacy department and the ER's locked narcotics cabinet. Additionally, removing injectable controlled substances from their container and replacing them with saline is another form of drug diversion. A nurse at Morehead Memorial Hospital, N.C., pleaded guilty to stealing morphine, secretly swapping the clear liquid drug with water. Each time, the caps were cut off syringes filled with meperidine and the drug was drained out. Later, the nurse refilled the syringes with saline solution and glued the simple syringe caps back on. Common diversion methods have been amply documented in scientific literature[1].

"i.v.STATION's combined and unique security features add significant competitive advantages over its two competitors as both Baxa's IntelliFill and IHS' RIVA robots utilize a plain Kendall syringe cap which is easily subject to tampering, accidental spillages, and other problems. This means not only patient safety advantages but also exponentially increasing our lead on ROI as i.v.STATION can handle a lot more than antibiotics, heparin and i
