Hillrom COVID-19 Resource Center

As health organizations face the increase in patients from the spread of coronavirus/COVID-19, Hillrom is ready to help in meeting critical product, services and solution needs. We announced a goal of more than doubling production of the most critical products to help clinicians in hospitals and primary care to treat increased numbers of COVID-19 patients in the following five areas.

FRONT LINE SCREENING & DIAGNOSTIC CAPACITY:
Maintaining availability of thermometry, vital signs and resting ECG devices to quickly examine patients and determine level of care needed.

INFECTION CONTROL & REDUCTION OF CROSS-CONTAMINATION:
Providing solutions to triage patients and dedicate supplies to isolation rooms in order to minimize cross-contamination risk.  Increasing production of disposable thermometry probe covers and single use pressure cuffs. 

RESPIRATORY DISTRESS MONITORING, NON-INVASIVE VENTILATION & AIRWAY CLEARANCE THERAPY:
Delivering innovative technologies to continuously monitor respiration rate. Providing patients breathing support when in respiratory distress and moving secretions out of the lungs.

INFRASTRUCTURE EXPANSION TO CREATE SURGE CAPACITY:
Working with governments & hospital systems to prepare to treat, monitor and move more patients in acute settings, including technology to automatically detect signs of possible patient deterioration.

CARE TEAM COMMUNICATIONS EXTENSION:
Preparing for care teams to stay connected across temporary spaces in hospitals and adjacent temporary facilities, as well as home or remote working spaces.

Hillrom’s business operations continue with no material interruption as global demand for several critical products has grown substantially. The company is working to significantly ramp up production of these products.

 

Helping the Heroes of the COVID-19 Response


Communications for Patient Surge Space 

Over a weekend, the Cleveland Clinic contacted us to support the reactivation of a decommissioned unit, now needed for the expected COVID-19 patient surge. The hospital challenged Hillrom to perform a rapid two-day installation of nurse call by Monday morning. We completed the accelerated installation, overcoming installation barriers with nurse call at the site, and enabling the new unit to open on time.

Supporting Critical Patient Care in New York 

We know that supporting hospitals right now — especially those in the heart of the pandemic, like The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York — is crucial. That's why we've been ramping up production and expediting deliveries like these 64 new beds for Mount Sinai Hospital to help clinicians treat the increasing number of COVID-19 patients.

Diagnostic Equipment for New County Testing Center

Hillrom recently worked with county officials to deliver diagnostic equipment to make the Onondaga County Testing Center project possible. By operating the new testing center, county officials will be able to keep patients with respiratory illnesses from seeking tests at hospitals, where they could spread their infection.
