|Improving care for critically ill older infants and
Until recently, hospital staff treating older infants and toddlers in PICUs had
little choice of bed for their young patients, which presented problems when complete
access was needed for difficult procedures such as tracheal intubation or putting in
The Doernbecher Critical Care Crib, produced by HARD Manufacturing Company, addresses the
specific problems encountered in PICUs.
The crib is designed to interface seamlessly with other ICU technology, such as mechanical
ventilators, invasive monitoring equipment, IV pumps and tubing. Tubing and wires are
easily accessed from the patient to IV pumps and monitors with one IV pump bracket on each
Multiple attachments for monitors, charts/graphs, medications and other equipment have
been added as a feature of the crib.
All four side rails have the EZ-Lift system, an innovation from HARD Manufacturing now
standard in all their critical care cribs. The EZ Lift System allows caregivers to raise
the crib sides without using the John Hopkins handle.
The sides may be placed in five positions, from fully down to fully raised. This gives
complete access to the child and improves the quality of care.
The sides are light and easy to handle with a noise suppressing mechanism developed for
neonatal patients. Nurses and parents find it easier to manage the rails, significantly
reducing the chances of carpal tunnel syndrome.
The Riley Access on each end gate at the head and foot of the crib gives quiet access to
the patient. Additionally, two specially designed bars on each side, called Portland
Access, can be temporarily opened creating a 5 gap for managing patient lines.
