Prime Series

Stryker's hospital stretchers

Our Prime Series stretchers are designed to reduce physical strain on clinicians, enhance comfort during patient transport and drive hospital efficiency. Transporting heavier patients in a hospital gurney is now easier with Stryker's advanced mobility, while electric functionality gives patients the independence to adjust themselves without calling for caregiver assistance. Fully equipped and highly configurable, our Prime Series stretchers allow you to create a solution that meets your specific needs.

The cost of falls

Noisy, chaotic and fast-paced—the emergency department never stops. With more patients and fewer nurses3, it can be challenging to not only set bed exit, but also to locate the right stretcher when an alarm is activated. And those actions have serious consequences.

Every year, nearly 1 million patients in the US experience a fall at the hospital1, with a significant number of these falls likely occurring in the emergency department. In addition to the devastating impact of lives lost, a fall can cost up to $32,2152 per episode of injury and take a serious toll on care team morale.

But falls don’t have to be the norm.

90% of emergency departments

More than 90% of U.S. EDs report feeling stressed beyond the breaking point, at least some of the time.
