  Preventing Medical Errors
Medical lines, tubing and drains are abundant in clinical practice. It is not uncommon to see IV lines & other cables tangled when patients are mobile or in transport. Tubing is a potential source of harm when it becomes dislodged, impinged, entangled or wrapped around the patient ’s neck or limbs. Furthermore; the time required for nursing staff to untangle, reorganize or reinsert lines represents a significant operational inefficiency.

Many new hospital beds use four independent bed rails which work to reduce the confinement of patients . However, when the head of the bed is elevated, a patient's IV or oxygen tubing frequently slides down the bed rail. The medical tubings then become stuck underneath the bed rail in its hinges.

This impingement causes restriction and entanglement when a patient turns to his side or attempts to exit the bed. This unnecessary tension causes pain and discomfort for the patient. Patients can have several tubes in use simultaneously, leading them to become entangled upon themselves and each other. Additionally, this problem of entangled and caught tubes takes extra time to resolve each time a patient is visited by the nurse.Another common problem occurs when a patient's tubing falls to the floor and becomes contaminated or entangled in the wheels of auxiliary equipment. Often times, the caregiver may accidentally step on an IV while giving assistance to the patient.
