Why are RTM Eye-Shields
the best choice for eye protection?
Better Design – They’re the original “strapless” phototherapy protection invented by Gayle Cook R.N., a newborn nursery nurse. They stay securely in place without the need to be constantly readjusted like other forms of protection, which saves your staff time. Since they only cover the eyes, it also eliminatesthe risk of airway occlusion and interference with cephalic IV’s on intensive care patients.
Great Options – Eye-shields are available in 3 coloroptions – pink, blue and white. They also come in 3 specific sizes – Newborn, Premature and Small Premature. The colors help parents feel more comfortable about the treatment because it seems “less” threatening. And, if your hospital has a range of low-birth weight patients who need phototherapy the different sizes allow you to always have the right size for every patient.
Safe Material – The adhesive tabs included with each Eye-Shield are hypoallegenic, sensitivity tested and have been found safe for neonate skin. The adhesive is made by the trusted 3M company, and all of the product materials within the Eye-Shield are latex free.
Easy to Use – You can feel confident in choosing Eye-Shields because for over 25 years nurses across the USA have found them much easier to use. Plus, after your patients are discharged Eye-Shields can easily be maintained by parents in the home healthcare setting.
