VIENNA, Austria, March 7, 2016/PRNewswire/. European pharmacists will have an opportunity to learn more about the fully automated IV compounding system and how it can significantly improve patient and hospital staff safety.
NEVO Europe [http://www.nevo-europe.com], a specialist in IV compounding automation solutions, will promote RIVA, the world's only fully automated IV compounding system at the EAHP Congress 2016 [http://www.eahp.eu/congresses], which will take place in Vienna on March 16-18, 2016.
NEVO Europe will provide information about the innovative automated IV compounding technology at the 21st Congress of the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists at booth #19.
Representatives of NEVO Europe will meet with hospital pharmacists and distributors from all over Europe to discuss the advantages of RIVA [http://www.nevo-europe.com/solutions/riva ], which prepares IV admixtures for both general medications and hazardous preparations in syringes and bags in an aseptic environment. By using RIVA, hospitals can enhance patient safety, lower cost-per-dose of medications and cut waste.
A recent study [http://ejhp.bmj.com/content/23/1/50.abstract] indicates that legislation and guidance concerning reconstitution of parenteral (IV) medicines are either nonexistent or insufficient in most countries belonging to the Council of Europe.
Researchers noted that European patients' health was at risk due to poor reconstitution and compounding practices. These risks include microbiological contamination, incorrect product composition, and health and safety issues.
"All critical compounding manipulation issues, including wrong drug, wrong dose, wrong diluents and possible microbial contamination, are addressed by RIVA," said Efi Gross, CEO of NEVO Europe. "EAHP will provide us with an opportunity to show European hospital pharmacists how they can use IV compounding automation to improve patient safety and reduce injury among hospital pharmacy staff."
RIVA is engineered to accurately and safely increase efficiency for routine repetitive movements related to the compounding of many frequently prescribed admixtures.
NEVO Europe's team at EAHP will help visitors calculate and evaluate--tailored to their hospital's environment and needs--how RIVA can optimize compounding efficiency in their own facilities.
