Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging to Explore Stemming More Than 1000 Preventable Deaths Each Day In The US Healthcare System

BOTHELL, WA, July 17, 2014 – FUJIFILM SonoSite Inc., the world leader and specialist in ultrasound performed at the point-of-care, applauds the US Senate Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging for having a hearing to explore ways to stem the more than 1000 preventable patient deaths a day in the US healthcare system.

"This crisis needs to be addressed at the highest levels sooner rather than later, and we applaud the Senate for taking action," said Diku Mandavia, MD, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at FUJIFILM SonoSite. "The fact is that there are many tools and methods to prevent these deaths if adopted broadly across a hospital, including those to significantly reduce a major threat to patient safety –hospital-acquired conditions."

Hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) are complications that a patient may develop during a stay in a hospital or medical facility. To reduce this patient risk, many leading hospitals now mandate that their physicians adopt proven best practices. As an example, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), as well as other medical groups recommend ultrasound-guided central line insertion for safer vascular access, based on overwhelming scientific evidence of its safety benefits.
