Oral Care Program
Evidence-Based Innovation in Oral Care
Combines innovative packaging design and evidence-based guidelines with clinical education and program management.
Ventilated patients are at the highest risk for infection and therefore require the most intensive oral care regimen. Care should be administered on a Q2 or Q4 schedule to help reduce the risk factors associated with ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).
Medline’s Oral Care program includes innovative Oral Care kits, as well as clinical education and program management to help you improve care in today’s healthcare setting.
Medline Oral Care kits are designed based on the IHI Ventilator Bundle recommendations* for the prevention of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). They feature compliance-at-a-glance education on the packaging and dispense products one-at-a time in the correct order to help drive compliance within a facility. With the program, Medline offers interactive online training, continuing education courses on Medline University, a dedicated program manager for your facility and reporting to track infection rates and staff compliance.
