LINET to Exhibit Innovative Technologies and “Save Our Nurses Movement” at AACN’s National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition May 22-25, 2017
LINET, an international leader in healthcare technology, and a leading global supplier of hospital beds, announces its participation in the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses’ (AACN) National Teaching Institute (NTI) & Critical Care Exposition held in Houston, May 22-25, 2017.
From hospital beds to support surfaces, LINET’s products use innovative technologies to create an ideal combination of clinical benefits for patients and the staff who cares for them. Rooted in caregiver safety and increasing patient outcomes, LINET’s mission has resulted in a revolutionary movement that aims to change healthcare for the betterment of nurses and caregivers everywhere – Save Our Nurses.
The Save Our Nurses movement is a social advocacy initiative that started in October 2016 to not only recognize the sacrifices nurses make every day to care for their patients, but to implement change. LINET will encourage exposition attendees to learn more about the movement and how their participation can make a difference.
“The NTI Exposition is known for its excellence and inspiration in the healthcare industry, which makes it the perfect platform for us to not only display our industry-changing products, but to share the Save Our Nurses movement and our steadfast mission to change the healthcare industry’s approach in providing care for those who care for us most,” said Colin Bain, President and CEO of LINET. “The nursing profession is physically taxing and simply put, it shouldn’t hurt to be a nurse and our movement will work to fix that.”
Nurses provide care designed to promote health, prevent illness and help achieve optimal recovery for individuals, families and their communities. They enter the profession because they are passionate about helping others; however, they are often put at risk for injury simply by performing routine tasks of their job. Nursing is one of the highest reported professions for back, shoulder and neck injuries and the impact goes beyond the bedside and carries into every aspect of their lives. In many cases, experienced nurses are leaving the career they love due to the physical demands and risk of the job.
One of the primary reasons for nurse back injuries and workplace injuries among caregivers is repositioning patients in bed to make them more comfortable or for clinical assessments/procedures. This includes turning patients from side to side and pulling them up in bed; both of which occur numerous times during every shift. While progress has been made in the industry to reduce this strain, nurses continue to sustain injuries from performing the basic functions of their jobs.
Now is the time to join together to support our nurses and implement changes to protect those who provide care for all of us when we need them the most.
At the exposition, attendees can experience LINET’s collection of industry-changing line of contemporary hospital beds for intensive care, med-surg and pediatrics - including the Multicare LE Acuity Adaptable Hospital Bed, Eleganza 3 Med-Surg Hospital Bed and the Multicare High Acuity Hospital Bed, among others - along with support surfaces. LINET will showcase their Multicare bed with Hercules Patient Repositioning SystemTM, which allows a single caregiver to reposition a patient up in bed with the simple push of a button. Hercules can help improve caregiver safety, increase operational efficiency, eliminate caregiver distractions, and protect your patient’s dignity.
