As Care Manager it is part of my role to find products that help staff do their job safely and efficiently. We have tried many medication crushers in the past and most have come up short in one way or another. The staff at Glacier View Lodge, (a Complex Care Facility for Seniors) are most impressed and pleased with the Powdercrusher. It is simple to use and reasonably quiet. We have found it even crushes the meds that have been very difficult to crush manually, such as calcium tablets, with the simple press of a button.
The Registered Nurses & the Licensed Practical Nurses of the Jordan LifeCare Centre Inc. have been using the Powdercrush (Pill Crusher) for three months now and are very pleased with it, comments such as very efficient, practical, awesome, this is the best yet,& my shoulders no longer ache from crushing pills is heard on a regular basis. We are very pleased to have discovered this product through the Petitcodiac Drug Mart as I have been searching for a product of this quality for some time.
Extendicare Tuxedo Villa has utilized the Powdercrusher since December 2004. We currently have three of the devices in service. The staff have been thrilled with the ease of use,time saving,and no complaints of injury from repetitive movements from other means of crushing medications.We can recommend this automated tablet crusher to other long term care facilities.
We are a 229 bed skilled nursing facility located in southeastern Wisconsin. My nurses are very impressed with your product. We were searching for a portable device that would be easy to use, yet powerful enough to crush multiple medications. From the minute the product was put into use, the nurses noted less soreness and discomfort that comes from using a manual crushing method. This product is also a time saver during busy med pass times. Thank you for coming up with such a useful tool!
