The nuclear medicine department at the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust has invested in a Lemer Pax Posijet automatic injector. Principal clinical scientist Matthew Galloway and his team have now been using the system for just over six months and report that it is already proving its worth.
“Introducing a new system is always a challenge, but in this case it proved to be very easy,” commented Galloway. “A Lemer Pax engineer visited our site and provided detailed training. There was a lot to learn regarding the setting up process but, despite the complexities, it was all relatively straightforward. Throughout the process both Lemer Pax and Bartec were very accommodating, particularly while we continued training other members of our team.
“There have been other benefits too, some more aesthetic than clinical. On the operational side, the Posijet certainly delivers more consistent administrations due to doses spending less time in preparation and transportation. It has also reduced the workload in the dispensary and lessened the risk of adverse incidents, such as contamination and needle sticks. From a purely visual perspective, patients like it too – apparently, they think it is quite fancy.”
