In 2010 as a request from the Australian manufacturer to meet the needs of the United States medical community for reducing medication errors and improving patient safety, Riskolgic was formed. The original vest worn by nurses during medication administration in the 1999-2001 research study was patented by this company based on Dr. Pape's landmark study. It is the one we now offer to healthcare organizations.
We love the work we do in making a difference for patient safety. We are located in the US, and we strive to keep our costs low. We accept all major credit cards.
At Riskologic we strive to:
We work to exceed the expectations of our valued customers by offering a unique service that is constantly focused on customer’s needs.
We strive is to continually evaluate our products, and maintain relationships with industry experts in order to meet “best practice” standards that are current with regulatory requirements.
Our products are based on research studies that have demonstrated significant reductions in nurses' interruptions and distractions during medication administration, and have reduced medication errors.
This evidence-based innovation has have been implemented within multiple hospital systems in the United States and throughout the world. The results have been decreases in medication errors. Nurse and patient satisfaction is increased as well. This innovation is hosted on the site of the Innovation Exchange of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
To learn more play the short video above from Dr. Pape, who is the nurse researcher whose original research study led to this vest being manufactured. As a result medication errors have been prevented because nurses are better able to retain focus if they are not interrupted and distracted during the process. Multiple hospital and other healthcare organizations have instituted the practice protocol. These organizations are all over the US and the world.
The video includes medication safety background information, and implementation practices that have been effective within other organizations.
The original study began in 1999...amazing!!!
