Last time I had some blood drawn, this sure could have come in handy!
Memphis-based Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare has become the first healthcare system in the world to implement the VeinViewer at multiple sites. The health system plans to have nine devices in its seven Memphis area hospital locations. Some are already in place.
"The VeinViewer is a revolutionary technology that will greatly enhance patient care, safety and comfort," said Gary S. Shorb, president and CEO, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare. "Making patients more comfortable during the blood drawing process is a major benefit, and it also helps our healthcare professionals work more efficiently."
