What an amazing November!
29th November 2017
We cannot believe that November is now pretty much over. What an amazing, action packed month we have had in the UK and with our International team!
Last week we attended the 6th Egyptian Society of Intensive Care and Trauma (ESICT) Conference in Cairo where we gave a very well received presentation about the issue of Deep Vein Thrombosis and how the use of Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) can help to reduce the risk of this classic avoidable harm.
At Talley we are not just experts in pressure ulcer prevention and negative pressure wound therapy but we also have a very long history in successfully using intermittent pneumatic compression to prevent DVT in both medical and surgical patients.
Less than a week before we touched down in Egypt we had our busiest and most successful exhibition ever at the Medica trade fair in Dusseldorf, Germany and as a result, 2018 is already looking like being particularly busy for our dedicated International Operations team.
Looking closer to home, the Wounds UK conference earlier this month saw us successfully present four e-posters.
Microbiologist Dr Kathy Lees reported on the benefits of using our unique TECcare CONTROL products to improve cleanliness of PAC mattress covers whilst seeing major efficiency gains and improving cost-effectiveness of the mattress cleaning process. This brilliant TECcare Antimicrobial Technology offers anyone cleaning mattresses some significant process improvements whilst simultaneously reducing costs and the risk of infection / cross infection from these devices.
Another Wounds UK e-poster reported on some fantastic year-on-year pressure ulcer incidence reductions when using our QUATTRO Acute for the top 30% of the most dependent patients in the hospital. QUATTRO Acute was used extensively throughout the hospital and over a 3 year period, encompassing over 325,000 bed days, the incidence of pressure ulcers reduced by 67%!
Yet another fantastic example of Talley partnering with a healthcare provider to consistently reduce avoidable harm.
December is looking like being another great month for Talley so watch this space!
Operations Director Kevin Mearns said;
‘Medica is always a great exhibition but this year was unbelievably busy for us and our International team are now working incredibly hard to follow up all of the great leads that we generated as a result of their efforts in Dusseldorf.
Our recent Wounds UK e-posters and the DVT presentation in Cairo last week clearly support our mission to use smart medical devices to reduce avoidable harms.
At Talley we understand our customers and their ongoing need to provide effective care whilst safeguarding patients and we continue to lead the way in helping our customers reduce avoidable harms for their patients.’
