Company Description: "Sandel Medical Industries is committed to providing innovative products that address safety issues for patients and healthcare staff." - Ansell Sandel Medical

Company History: Sandel Medical Industries history represents a story of successful innovation of Patient and Staff Safety Products. Founded in 2002, the company was built on the following principles:
1. To seek out unresolved safety issues in the Operating Room as defined by perioperative nurses and healthcare professionals; and
2. To develop and manufacture practical "Problem-Solving" products that address Patient and Staff Safety.
"From a modest beginning when Sandel's total line consisted of only two new and innovative products in 2002, we now manufacture and market over 100 products that were previously unavailable to the industry. Sandel is able to address now provides safety solutions to hospitals and surgery centers everywhere." - Ansell Sandel Medical

Quote From the Owner: "At Sandel we're as dedicated to your safety as we are to the safety of your patients. One without the other just isn't enough." - Dan Sandel, Consultant

Most Popular Products:

Engineered Sharps Injury Prevention (ESIP) Products
Engineered Sharps Injury Prevention (ESIP) Products are designed to prevent healthcare employees such as doctors and nurses from accidentally hurting themselves with sharp medical tools. This line of products includes Neutral Zone mats for surgical tools, Hands-Free Transfer Trays, Change-A-Blade™, Scalpel Disarmer™, and Safety Scalpels. Each product has been crafted to help avoid injuries from surgical scissors, needles, scalpels, and other sharp medical tools.

Ergonomic Workplace Safety Products
Sandel Medical Industries' Ergonomic Workplace Safety Products are used to eliminate work-related injuries and musculoskeletal disorders. The use of Sandel's Egro-Stand EZ™ Anti-Fatigue Mats, Z-Slider™ Patient Transfer Sheets, Ergo-Step™ Stools, Trip-No-More™, Standel™ Sit-Stand, and DriFloor™ Absorbent Pads reduces strains and stress. As a result, they promote a safer work environment for employees and executives alike.

Medication Labels
With the goal of eliminating medication misidentification, Sandel developed the Correct Medication Labeling System™. This effective labeling system can be used for medicine containers and cups, as well as basins and syringes. Special markers and Proprietary ID Flags are also available.

TIME OUT® Products
As recommended by The Joint Commission's Universal Protocol, doctors and nurses sometimes take breaks during surgical procedures. TIME OUT™ products remind those working in operating rooms to take these recommended breaks, and to reenter the correct site and continue working on the correct patient upon their return. Sandel's TIME OUT™ products include No-Roll Skin and Permanent Markers, Correct Site™ Tattoos and Stickers, TIME OUT Beacon™, TIME OUT Sleeve™, TIME OUT Hood™, and TIME OUT Safety Kit™.

Specimen Handling System
Sandel's Specimen Handling System™ helps prevent misdiagnoses and errors caused by misidentification. Sandel accomplishes this goal by manufacturing sheet sets, labels, and containers in colors other than the typical blue used in myriad healthcare offices, medical clinics, and hospitals. Specimen Handling System™ products are available through Custom Procedural Tray (CPT) Providers.
