HYGIA Adds Bed Alarms to Hospital and Health Systems’ Green Initiatives That Have Prevented Over 67 Million Feet of Products and Packages from Entering Landfills
Date:10/23/2013

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

HYGIA Health Services, the leading provider of Essential Clinical Commodities (ECCs) through their multiplication and management program, has added bed alarms to their catalog of single use, non-invasive devices around the patient room. Typically, medical reprocessors focus on surgery devices and ignore the large opportunity in other areas of the hospital to save substantial money and eliminate landfill waste. HYGIA’s high quality processes—specifically designed for ECCs—clean, test, disinfect, and repackage items using FDA approved processes to provide hospital cubicle curtains, cerebral-somatic sensors, blood pressure cuffs, SCD/DVT sleeves, pulse ox sensors, ECG leads, pneumatic tourniquets, infusor bags, splints, masks, and now bed alarms. This comprehensive savings and green program has prevented an average of 300 thousand feet of products and packages from entering landfills per customer and can produce over $5290 in hard cost savings per bed over 5 years.

Essential Clinical Commodities

Essential Clinical Commodities (ECCs) are products throughout the hospital that are essential for the clinical setting and can be managed and reprocessed with HYGIA using FDA approved methodology to save over $1,000 per bed per year. Many are Single Use Devices (SUDs) historically thrown away, generating millions of pounds of landfill waste.

Going Green

HYGIA eliminates millions of pounds of waste, equating to over 67 million feet of products and packages to date. Each device currently disposed of impacts the environment. To assist hospitals in their green efforts, HYGIA continues to add new devices offered as part of its management and savings multiplication program. These devices include, but are not limited to: bed curtains, cerebral-somatic sensors, blood pressure cuffs, SCD/DVT sleeves, pulse ox sensors, ECG leads, pneumatic tourniquets, infusor bags, splints, masks, bed alarms, and now bed alarms.

“HYGIA’s Green² initiatives for essential clinical commodities substantially reduce hospital current landfill waste contributions while saving them up to $1,000 per bed per year in a largely ignored and untapped area of savings. Medical reprocessors only skim the surface of what you will save with HYGIA.”
--Scott Comas, President & CEO, HYGIA

Savings Multiplication Management

HYGIA’s Essential Clinical Commodity (ECC) Savings Multiplication Management Program manages, maximizes, and multiplies the savings and “green” impact for hospitals across the country. HYGIA offers a pre-contract ECC improvement analyses to create an operational baseline and discover the extent of potential savings, green impact, and efficiency improvements over time.

About HYGIA

For over a decade, HYGIA has provided 300+ hospitals in 32 states substantial savings and a more environmentally friendly option for managing their high volume essential clinical commodities (ECCs) around the patient room such as blood pressure cuffs, hospital cubical curtains, cerebral-somatic sensors, SCD/DVT sleeves, pulse ox sensors, ECG leads, pneumatic tourniquets, infusor bags, splints, masks, bed alarms, and stethoscopes. HYGIA achieves greater cost savings and elimination of landfill waste by concentrating on the often-ignored essential clinical commodities throughout the rest of the hospital rather than narrowly focusing on surgery, like traditional medical reprocessors. Incorporating accountable relationships, high quality processes, and better patient experiences into the business model, single use devices (SUDs) and other ECCs are cleaned, reprocessed, tested, sanitized, packaged, and managed for superior patient room asset utilization and greater green impact.
