Stryker announces new Emergency Relief Patient Cover to protect patients and staff


Styker announced today it has developed an emergency relief patient cover to meet the needs of healthcare providers. Customers voiced feedback about emergency care provider exposure to patients that may have COVID-19. With PPE shortages exacerbating these concerns, some customers have resorted to creating their own solutions, all while trying to care for their patients and protect themselves.

Stryker’s EMS and hospital customers reported that they were looking for some type of barrier that was easy to use, and safe for patients and staff, while still providing the ability for patient intervention while the barrier was in place. Stryker’s Emergency Relief Patient Cover was designed to address these challenges.

The patient cover is being sold in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Peru, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama and Brazil.
