MedViron Guardian Rise Bassinet, Utah Hospital Trial

Maternity nurses review new height-adjustable bassinet

For a hospital equipment manufacturer engaged in product trials at many healthcare facilities, nothing is better than receiving positive responses from patients and caregivers. That is exactly what happened when nursing staff at a hospital in Utah began a trial of the MedViron Guardian Rise Bassinet.

Infant caregivers were asked to fill out a survey on a range of criteria, including ease of activation, mobility, as well as ergonomics. 

One caregiver, Michelle, told us she "liked the look".  Another caregiver at the hospital, Chelsea, put simply “Love it!!!”.   All written comments were positive.

Below is a list of the questions asked with the number of type of responses given. 

We here at MedViron are thrilled with the positive impact we are having on patient care. Thank you to the hardworking nurses for your feedback, and thank you for being willing to try out the MedViron Guardian Rise Bassinet.
