What is ANNA
American Nephrology Nurses’ Association
Members of ANNA seek to promote excellence in nephrology nursing to make a positive difference for those with kidney disease.
Acute Dialysis and PHS West
PHS West manufactures the Ergo-Express Dialysis Carts. Adding a power drive to the acute dialysis equipment transport allows for one staff member to make one trip with no risk of push pull injuries. Standard transport of acute dialysis equipment includes pushing either one very heavy cart, or several heavy carts from the department to the patients room for the acute bedside procedures. Pushing of this heavy equipment can cause injury to the staff members involved. In an attempt to continue with the ANNA core focus of making a positive difference for those with kidney disease, PHS West knows taking more trips with lower weight on each cart is not the best solution and thus, created the Ergo-Express Motorized Dialysis Carts. With just the touch of a finger the Ergo-Express Motorized Dialysis Carts help the staff members safely and efficiently transport all of their acute dialysis equipment from their department to the patients room.
How was the show this year?
PHS West attends the ANNA annual fall and spring national conferences and continue to wow the attendees. Acute dialysis procedures are a daily part of life for dialysis staff. However, adding a power drive solution to this transport is still a new concept to them, even though staff are getting injured during this transport across the nation. ANNA members who have the Ergo-Express Motorized Dialysis Carts in their departments rave to their colleagues about them, and the word spreads like wild fire. Those who have them love them and those who do not have them want them. PHS West will build the cart to suit the departments specific combination of equipment and HemoDialysis Machine to ensure the cart is most functional, while being mindful of the overall size and fitting it into a cramped patient room.
