Lorraine Yehlen, DCH vice president of patient care services, said Hospira offered two solutions: rental pumps or manual injections.
She said research has proven that pumps are superior to injections. "Rental pumps are also unavailable, so the only viable option is to pursue the purchase of alternative pumps," she said. Three different pain medications - morphine, Demerol and Dilaudid - can be provided through these pumps, Yehlen said. The new pumps can be delivered by the beginning of February, she said. "If we can't get the vials for the PCA pumps, we will not be able to deliver this method of pain medication, and that would be detrimental to our patients," Yehlen said. The first phase included renovations to the operating rooms and hallways, which received new flooring, paint and wall rails."Both of these units have been in service for a while, and we try to go throughout the building and refurbish in order to replace areas that have wear and tear to make it look modern and neat," Fisher said.In addition to the two renovation projects, the board approved the purchase of 110 CareFusion patient-controlled analgesia pumps to replace Hospira pumps after the company had an interruption in the production of vials.Lorraine Yehlen, DCH vice president of patient care services, said Hospira offered two solutions: rental pumps or manual injections. She said research has proven that pumps are superior to injections."Rental pumps are also unavailable, so the only viable option is to pursue the purchase of alternative pumps," she said.The cost of the pumps will be $621,700, and DCH chief financial officer Nina Dusang said Hospira has offered a settlement of about $100,000 for the interruption.The expense was not budgeted, but Dusang said it will be recovered over time because the CareFusion vials are manufactured in a way that makes them cheaper, saving about $150,000 a year for the whole system.Dusang said the Hospira pumps were due to be replaced in about a year, and the CareFusion pumps have a useful life of about seven years.Three different pain medications - morphine, Demerol and Dilaudid - can be provided through these pumps, Yehlen said.The new pumps can be delivered by the beginning of February, she said."If we can't get the vials for the PCA pumps, we will not be able to deliver this method of pain medication, and that would be detrimental to our patients," Yehlen said.
