The Association for Vascular Access (AVA) is an organization of healthcare professionals to support the specialty of vascular access. The mission of AVA is to lead healthcare by protecting patients and providers to improve lives.
AVA’s multidisciplinary membership – including nurses, physicians, infection preventionists, and industry representatives – come together to advance research, provide professional and public education to shape practice, and enhance patient outcomes.
Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) are a serious complication related to vascular access and are associated with increased hospital length of stay, mortality, and costs. Data suggests that dressing disruptions are a major risk factor for catheter-related infections1. Eloquest Healthcare is committed to helping facilities avoid premature vascular access dressing changes thereby reducing risk of infection and skin injury.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in her lifetime. Breast Cancer Awareness is important to Eloquest Healthcare. Throughout October and at AVA 2019, the Eloquest team will be fundraising for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. NBCF’s mission is to support those affected by breast cancer through early detection and education.
Eloquest Healthcare will make a donation to the NBCF for every hospital that signs up for a vascular access dressing risk assessment.* It is a simple, fast process that provides a concise summary of the facility’s infection risk, nurse efficiency, and product waste. If the risk assessment occurs before the end of breast cancer awareness month, we’ll double the donation.
Donate to this worthy cause while obtaining your facility’s custom analysis. Make a note to stop by Booth #318 and sign up!
