WHAT IS MAID MED AND WHO WOULD USE MAID MED?
MAID-MED is a inexpensive, comprehensive solution to a common communication problem ensuring safe drug administration leading to safe treatment care. It is an information delivery device that provides patients & caregivers with more accurate communication of the medication name, time, amount/dose of an already given medicine. It ALERTS the next caregiver that the patient has treatment medication in their system allowing them to use this knowledge when treating this patient. It may contain patient related data via included pharmacy label or bar code data. View MAID-MED – A Method & Apparatus for Safe Drug Administration ©
When a Diabetic Toddler began vomiting at daycare, her provider gave her juice as ordered. Her next medication dose resulted in another reaction. The provider called an ambulance that took the child to the nearest Emergency Department. Emergency Department Staff started lab tests, strip tests, but were not informed that she had Insulin 2 hours ago. If the toddler was wearing a MAIDMED, staff would have known about the medication & the dose making it safer to begin a treatment plan. MAID MED would be attached to her wrist or ankle.
If our son administered his Epipen at school for his nut allergy, how would the Emergency Department Staff know the drug was given? School & transfer staff will document it but what if there is an error? If the casualty applied his MAID MED after taking the medication both EMS and Emergency Staff would have visual evidence that the medication was in his system allowing them to administer other treatment drugs accurately.
Emergency Department staff used my grandmother’s wrist MAID MED to determine that she had taken her heart medication before she became ill, on the day she was transferred to hospital and they included the dose in her emergency treatment. It shortened her recovery.
It could save you or a loved one’s life.
