Infection Prevention Leads NY Hospital to GelShot Over Traditional Ultrasound Gel.
After the Joint Commission’s suggestions regarding the use of lotions and gels, safety and sanitation concerns were raised in the rehabilitation department of a New York-based hospital group. To address the concerns, the hospital group initiated a three-month trial of GelShot to test its efficacy against traditional ultrasound gel. After a very successful review of GelShot, the hospital group eliminated bulk ultrasound gel from all of its hospitals and outpatient facilities. In its place, each ultrasound device will be equipped with only GelShot moving forward.
