Emily Jerry Foundation Endorses Life-Saving Technology
Date:1/19/2010

g over and over again," said Jerry, president and chief executive officer of the Mentor, Ohio-based Emily Jerry Foundation. "Technology like the CDEX ValiMed™ MVS equipment is clinically proven to save lives and can prevent the death of other children."

Emily Jerry died in March 2006 when a pharmacy technician's mistake led to the delivery of a fatal dose of saline solution.  Her death came only three days after receiving the lethal dose during what should have been her final chemotherapy treatment.  The grapefruit-sized tumor in her abdomen was gone and her parents were planning a trip to Disney World when the toxic mixture was administered.  

"ValiMed™ MVS is the only technology available today that prevents harm to patients from human errors in the compounding of high-risk medications," said Jerry. "We can immediately begin saving lives with the ValiMed™ MVS system. Let's act now to prevent any more senseless deaths from occurring by asking all medical facilities compounding intravenous medications to install and use the ValiMed™ MVS by CDEX in their pharmacies."

CDEX is a Tucson, AZ-based company specializing in chemical detection technologies with a vision for saving lives and protecting assets. "We are proud to partner with and accept the endorsement of the Emily Jerry Foundation," said CDEX Senior Vice President Gregory A. Firmbach. "The foundation's mission of preventing adverse drug events from occurring aligns perfectly with the designed functionality of ValiMed™ MVS. Our system was designed as a final check to prevent medical errors in the compounding of high-risk drugs in the hospital pharmacy thereby saving lives, enhancing patient safety and eliminating that liability exposure for the hospital."
