IV Efficacy Temperature Monitoring
Objective

Implement a temperature monitoring solution to inform the hospital pharmacy whether unused IV bags, returned from nurse stations throughout the hospital, have lost their efficacy due to lengthy exposure in non-refrigerated environments.

Strategy

With the effectiveness of LOG-I®C 360 loggers proven for the external cold chain, the same solution was chosen to record the temperature of IV bags traveling throughout the hospital, giving the pharmacist a full time/temperature history.

Implementation

The multi-use LOG-IC® 360 logger is attached to IV bags with high-value medications. Pharmacists easily see if the medications have been exposed to adverse temperatures and then reuse the loggers on other medications.

Results

As a result of the LOG-IC® 360 implementation, the hospital has saved costs by preventing unnecessary waste of good medications, while providing a safer environment for their patients.
