The University awarded a contract for rental of IV pumps.
Rental of IV Pumps (infusion pumps) for COVID-19 patients. IV pumps are capable of delivering fluids in large or small amounts, and used to deliver nutrients or medications such as insulin or other hormones, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, and pain relievers. Some infusion pumps are designed mainly for stationary use at a patient's bedside.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) The IV pumps provided by Agiliti Health are used in direct patient care. Without access to this specific equipment the hospital would not be able to offer certain patient care during their stay or surgical procedures. This would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
