1.7 Million patients are affected by Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) every year in the U.S. The Yankaddy® can change that.
The Yankaddy® (patent pending) is a disposable holster designed to releasably retain the Yankauer suction instrument and prevent any undesired movement of the Yankauer. It easily attaches to the Yankaddy® reusable bracket, that features an adjustable arm with a spring clamp, making it easy to attach to numerous places such as bedrails, counters, equipment, and IV poles so that it is always where it needs to be, when it needs to be there.
Until now, there has not been a place to store the Yankauer suction instrument before and during its use in a medical procedure. The Yankaddy® offers a reliable place to store the Yankauer suction instrument thereby keeping the environment from becoming contaminated and spreading healthcare-associated infections. It was designed to be used with one hand, adding safety to patients and convenience to medical providers.
