The Ultrasorbs Moisture Management System is a great example of a small change that can make a big difference

Nursing in critical care, you strive to deliver the best possible care to your patients; care that is often complex and time consuming.

However, pressure on critical care teams working in health systems, like the National Health Service (NHS), has been considerable. This is the case, not only throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, but also before the pandemic. Today, the challenge of delivering the best standard of care is clear to see, with critical bed occupancy rates as high as 87%.¹ The recommendation is 75%.² In addition, there are nurse vacancy rates of nearly 11%.³

At Medline, we recognise these challenges. And while no single product can resolve these challenges, the combined impact of the small changes that our nurse-led solutions bring can help make a big difference by:

  • Improving efficacy
  • Cutting unnecessary risk
  • Unlocking more time for care.
