4 Things You Can Do to Protect Your Patients

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines patient safety as

“the absence of preventable harm to a patient and reduction of risk of unnecessary harm associated with health care to an acceptable minimum”.1  

Healthcare institutes such as WHO or the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have policies and best practices that caregivers should follow to ensure that the risks of patient harm are reduced to the lowest possible level. At PlatinumCode, our mission is to build better futures for our customers and their patients by manufacturing and supplying products that support these important patient safety initiatives. Over the past three decades, we have collaborated with health systems around the nation to provide solutions that reduce risks of infection transmission, patient mis-identification, and human error. Here are four ways that our customers use these products to protect their patients:

Use single-use, disposable products to reduce cross-infection and cross-contamination. 80% of infections are transmitted through touch2, so there is an added risk of cross-infection from patient-to-patient for every product that is used to treat multiple patients. At a time of a global disease pandemic, the best practice of using single-use products when treating patients is particularly important. In addition to the risks of patient infection and contamination, we understand that health systems must consider other factors when deciding between a reusable or a disposable product, such as cost and environmental impact. Fortunately, PlatinumCode has a variety of disposable tourniquets and individually-wrapped, single-use cohesive bandages that not only address risk of cross-infection, but that are cost-effective and non-latex.

Reduce environmental factors that can contribute to mistakes in patient care. When tourniquets are left in place for too long, you risk hemolysis and damage to the blood sample, or worse, significant injury can occur to the patient in the form of circulatory, neurological, vascular, and muscular damage3. The most common cause for these forgotten tourniquet incidences is due to environment-related factors, such as the tourniquet being found under gowns and healthcare drapes4. So, what can you do to prevent these unfortunate mistakes? You can make sure that your tourniquets stand out and get noticed in a sea of monochrome or muted colors typically used in healthcare. By using brightly colored tourniquets, caregivers are more likely to notice a tourniquet and remove it at the appropriate time.

Ensure that identification labels and wristbands will not fall off specimens and patients. PlatinumCode has tamper-evident wristbands that are designed to stay in place so that your patients are always identified correctly during their stay. Just as important as accurate patient identification is the identification of patients’ laboratory samples. These samples are subjected to a variety of harsh environmental conditions during the analytical phase of testing, including extreme temperatures, steam, and radiation. To ensure that a patient sample is always identified correctly, it is imperative that the label be fully adhered to every specimen and display a clear barcode. If sample identification is compromised, delays in diagnosis or incorrect diagnoses may result. PlatinumCode cryogenic labels are made from a label stock that provides excellent barcode visibility and an adhesive that remains attached to the sample in the harshest environments.

Utilize automation to reduce human errors in redundant tasks. It’s no secret that redundant and monotonous tasks are prone to increases in human errors. The best way to address mistakes that occur during these repetitive processes is to automate them using technology. Kairos ID Automated Tube Labeling Systems are designed to automate repetitive phlebotomy tasks and help to ensure a patient-to-specimen match through a closed loop confirmation. By virtually eliminating all labeling errors, including missing, wrinkled, or crooked labels, this automation technology can help to prevent delays in or incorrect diagnoses.

PlatinumCode Launches New Responsive E-Commerce Website

PlatinumCode’s new website aims to capture more than just desktop users with a fully responsive design built on one of the most powerful e-commerce platforms

MINNEAPOLIS, May 7, 2015 – PlatinumCode, a leading manufacturer and supplier of specimen identification and collection products for the healthcare industry, announced today that it has officially launched a new fully responsive, e-commerce website. According to Marty Griffith, PlatinumCode’s President, the new website is perfectly aligned with the company’s brand and strategic vision for growth in the years to come.

“We are a 25-year old company, yet we recognized the need to keep innovating and to bring forth a better platform for our customers to make more educated purchases,” Griffith explained, “and we believe our new website will help achieve just that.”

The new PlatinumCode website offers a clean, cutting edge design, with product-specific landing pages that speak to the features and benefits of the product, as well as the variety of packaging options the customer has. The site, built on one of the most advanced and respected e-commerce platforms, gives existing customers the ability to manage their online accounts, quickly re-order items they have previously ordered, track orders, request quotes, and request free samples. For the potential customers, the site gives in depth descriptions of products lines to assist in making even more educated purchases. In addition to creating a new account, potential customers will also have the ability to request quotes and request free samples.

“PlatinumCode’s vision for the site was to have a strong focus on educating and a secondary focus on e-commerce,” Ron Griffith, PlatinumCode’s Chief Revenue Officer, stated, “We have seen so many sites, including our previous site, that simply listed healthcare products without providing the actual benefits that patients and healthcare employees will see, which is not typically what healthcare professionals trust in making purchasing decisions.”

The new website is fully responsive, which means that the site automatically adjusts its size depending on the device being used, whether the user is using a desktop PC, mobile phone, or tablet.

“Although our traffic is primarily visiting our site using a PC, we have seen an increase in traffic using phones and tablets,” said Ron Griffith, “and a responsive site will allow for the growth of that traffic to have a better overall site experience, which is extremely valuable to us.”

The launch of the website has also come at a milestone year for PlatinumCode, as they celebrate their 25th year in business this year.

“We opened our doors in 1990 as Interstate Paper Company, selling strictly paper and labels. We have definitely come a long way in 25 years, adding new product lines, re-branding, building our sales team, and now launching what we believe will be an amazing sales tool,” Marty Griffith said.

PlatinumCode Commits to Donating Five Percent of Profits from the sale of Pink Products to Support Breast Cancer Awareness

For a second year in a row, PlatinumCode will support breast cancer research with pink products

MINNEAPOLIS, September 18, 2014 – PlatinumCode, a leading manufacturer and supplier of specimen identification, transport and collection products for the healthcare industry, announced earlier this month that they have committed to donate five percent of their profits of the sale of eligible pink products to breast cancer research. In making the announcement, PlatinumCode has launched various marketing efforts to help support the cause, including providing clinical and hospital labs with their popular “Pink Packs” of samples.

PlatinumCode has been busy packing up Pink Pack sample packs since mid-August and continues to send them on a daily basis to clinical and hospital labs. The free of charge Pink Packs contain the recipient’s choice of magenta tourniquets, pink pediatric tourniquets, pink cohesive bandage, pink nitrile gloves, and disposable pink lab coats or jackets. PlatinumCode also included a pink-ribbon retractable badge holder for hospital and clinic staff as a small gift. Pink-Packs can be requested online at www.platinumcode.us or over the phone at 888.446.9965.

“The Pink-Packs are not only a wonderful way to get our quality products in front of our customers and potential customers, but a great way to spread awareness for such a great cause.” explained Chad Falkenborg, PlatinumCode Sales Manager, “And this year – they (Pink Packs) are flying off the shelves!”

In 2013 PlatinumCode indicated record-breaking sales for the month of October from the sale of pink products, making their donation greater than anticipated. This year, PlatinumCode has a goal to nearly double their donation.

“We get really excited about supporting such a great cause and want to do everything we can to help, and what better way to spread awareness than having health care professionals use pink products?” explained Ron Griffith, PlatinumCode CRO. “We are really hoping to see a huge leap in our donation this year, and have plans to nearly double it.”

PlatinumCode has not yet indicated which charitable research organization their donation will go towards, yet plans to find an organization with a strong focus on research and more than 90 percent of their budget going towards program expenses.

PlatinumCode’s new specimen collection product catalog features tourniquets, cohesive bandages, nitrile gloves, specimen transport bags, disposable lab coats and jackets, lancets, and heel sticks. PlatinumCode is currently redesigning their identification product catalog featuring labels for the clinical laboratory, pharmacy, admitting and materials management departments in healthcare facilities.

“Our new catalog is really focused,” said Griffith, “We really wanted to focus on our core products and allow for our customers to really see all of the versatility that our products do have, such as bright colors, various sizes, and cuttingedge features. We also just launched infant tourniquets which have had a great response.”

PlatinumCode launched infant tourniquets in response to customer demand earlier this year and plan to showcase them while in Chicago. The tourniquets measure one-half-inch wide by nine inches long and are available in both blue and purple. PlatinumCode will be in booth #4848 at the 2014 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo from July 29 – 31 in Chicago.
