Developed with anesthesiologist Dr. Christopher Walters, Ident-Alert® IV Port Clips are a simple way to help prevent IV medication errors during surgery.
The clips are designed specifically for IV injection ports to act as a last step visual cue and reminder for medication warnings or allergies. They help prevent potentially lethal medication administration errors by alerting the anesthesiologist right at the site of the drug injection.
Dr. Christopher Walters is a practicing anesthesiologist in the Boston area. He identified the need for this visual alert, then worked with PDC to develop the solution.
We sat down with Dr. Walters to get the story behind the development of the Ident-Alert® IV Port Clips.
