OUR COMMITMENT TO INTEGRITY
As nursing home operators, we know that sometimes simple problems get very complicated. Dehydration may be the simplest, most complicated problem of all. It’s a persistent universal issue that’s never quite been solved.
THAT'S WHY WE FOUNDED DRIPT
We’re a preventative intervention that improves hydrational health for at risk patients. We’re backed by science, and committed to working hand-in-hand with doctors to improve patient outcomes nationwide.
WHICH PATIENTS ARE RIGHT
FOR DRIPT IV THERAPY?
A vital part of Dript’s core mission is identifying what we call The 30%. The science shows that for 70% of nursing home patients, oral hydration is adequate. This patient group is independent and doing just fine with oral hydration and basic approaches to care. They are at low risk for dehydration.
The 30% make up a different class of patient. These are the patients with wounds, weight loss, UTIs and mobility issues. They’re in cognitive and functional decline. Because of these persistent issues, they suffer from what doctors call The Dehydration Cascade, the gradual increase of dehydration risk from insufficient oral hydration, chronic conditions and comorbidities.
It’s likely that you’re already familiar with The 30% and use different criteria to assess their risks. By addressing The Hydration Gap in these patients, Dript IV mitigates against the The Dehydration Cascade, reducing risk and fostering better patient outcomes.
