Rainbow Trays™ from Uvamed ® are color-coded anesthetic trays that provide a safe environment for the transportation, storage and administration of anesthetic drugs. Rainbow Trays incorporate the logical progression integrated with the established international color-coding system for critical care drug labeling to aid in the reduction of medication errors.
The Food and Drug Administration reports that medication mistakes are the most common medical error, causing 1.3 million injuries a year and costing an estimated $77 billion a year.¹ Rainbow Trays provide an easy visual check to avoid injuries and costly medication errors.
The system offers three separate color-coded base trays that allow an anesthetist to clearly separate routine, local and emergency drugs. Base trays can be reused multiple times and easily cleaned using anti-bacterial wipes or sterilized with ethylene oxide. Separate, clear insert trays are for single use only and are placed inside the base tray to provide sections for the syringes to be placed. Each base tray comes packaged with 100 insert trays.
