Improving Patient & Staff Safety through Design 

When the University of Tennessee Medical Center (UTMC) decided to upgrade and expand its Neuro-Intensive care unit, they knew they needed more than new equipment—they needed a whole new concept of care delivery. UTMC teamed up with Dräger to deliver a safe and efficient environment that aligns with their clinical and operational objectives to set a new standard of Neuro-ICU Design. 

Discover how the collaboration improved: 

  • Clinical practice and workflow 
  • Reduction of staff injuries and improvement in satisfaction 
  • Patient family experience
