Health Robotics' i.v.STATION Robot Receives Endorsement in Canary Islands

Health Robotics' i.v.STATION Robot continued on its undeterred path to collect endorsements and customer testimonials from pharmacists all over the world, documenting its unprecedented cost savings and patient safety benefits.

The Government of Canary Islands' Health Counsel stated in its official press release last week: "With the implementation of the i.v.STATION Robot, the Pharmacy Department at University Hospital of Gran Canaria Doctor Negrin assures the correct preparation of injectable medications for patient administration with the maximum guarantees of safety, by minimizing dose errors, cross contamination, and hospital-acquired infections, while protecting clinical staff. In addition, the i.v.STATION Robot saves costs and reduces turnaround time, benefiting the patients while optimizing pharmacy staffing levels."

Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President and Board Member, stated: "Health Robotics' first installation in the African continent is yet another example that the i.v.STATION Robot has gone mainstream with consistent cost savings and safety benefits for global hospitals. Reaching 175 Robot installations and an overwhelming 90% market share, Health Robotics now has approximately 10 times more Robot installations than all of its worldwide competitors combined, in North America, Europe, Asia, South America, Australia, and now also in Africa."

The Government of Canary Islands Health Counsel continued: "The i.v.STATION Robot prepares liquid and powder medications in syringes and IV Bags for biologic, antifungal, intravitreous, and antibiotic drugs, which where formerly prepared in laminar airflow hoods in the Pharmacy, or the case of antibiotics at some of the wards or nurse stations throughout the hospital. The i.v.STATION Robot security features include the automatic verification of each ingredient's weight, the automatic bar-code labeling of final containers, and complete audit trail of the compounding process. This improves the guarantees on sterility, conservation, and extended expiration date, due to i.v.STATION's air quality and ultraviolet sterilization chamber. Finally i.v.STATION has the extra cost saving benefits of re-using vials, which optimizes the cost of expensive drugs, and the reduced labor costs associated with clinical staff injuries due to needle-stick and repetitive strain."
