Keeping lines and tubings off the floor also helps to prevent slips, trips, and falls for patients, visitors, and staff. Separation and clearance of IV lines helps prevent accidental pulling out of lines which cause bleeding, injury, and loss of IV access. IV restarts are painful and costly for the patient and facility.

Keeping lines and tubings off the floor also assists to prevent possible infections by keeping bacteria and other harmful substances away from the patients.

When hospital or nursing home patients are unable to call for assistance, they often get out of bed by themselves. This often results in falls with injuries and possibly death.

The Bee Safe Clip holds and secures the nurse call bell to bed rails, chairs and wheelchairs, bedside commodes, and more. Patients often try to hold the nurse call bell in bed. When they fall asleep, the call bell becomes misplaced and falls to the floor. The patient can no longer call for help.

The Bee Safe Clip helps secure the nurse call bell for easy access. The clip also helps alleviate fear for patients who feel as if they won’t be able to call for assistance. As the patient turns and repositions, a nurse can move the clip to allow for easy access to the call bell at all times.

The Bee Safe Clip improves patient, staff and visitor satisfaction by demonstrating positive actions to help patients call for assistance. It also decreases mistaken calls to the nurses’ station when a patient lays or turns over onto the call bell.

The Bee Safe Clip helps to meet the National Standards of Universal Safety Precautions.

Organizes and holds the following medical lines and tubing: Nasogastric, oral suction, foleys, IV lines, telemetry, wound vacs, telephone cords, scd/foot pump cords, chest tubes, feeding tubes, hemovac drains, oxygen tubing and other medical devices.
