On November 3rd 2010 at a prestigious ceremony in London, TG Eakin Ltd were delighted to receive the Gold Prize in the ‘Continence and Stoma Care’ category of the Nursing Times Product Awards for the highly innovative Cohesive® Paste.
The awards were set up to recognise and reward the products that are transforming patient care and helping healthcare professionals work efficiently. Innovation and practicality are both fundamental attributes for the devices and products that nurses use on a daily basis. High quality products enable nurses to work more effectively in a clinical environment and are essential for improving patient safety and assisting in daily care, observation and treatment.
The finalists were judged by a prestigious panel of clinical and industry experts to determine the winners in each category. The judges felt that eakin Cohesive® Paste successfully delivered in all of these areas, as it is indeed a stoma paste with a difference. It helps protect peristomal skin, prevent leakage and increase comfort and security. However, the main distinguishing characteristic of Cohesive Paste® is of course the fact that it is alcohol free. There is no stinging on application and it can even be applied directly onto excoriated skin, unlike many other pastes on the market. It is also quick and easy to use and may be used in conjunction with the well-established eakin Cohesive® Seals and Cohesive SLIMS®, the market leaders in peristomal skin protection since 1980.
All in all the judging panel recognized the positive impact that Cohesive® Paste has on managing patients’ continence or stoma needs by promoting dignity and comfort and also improving health. Nursing Times Editor, Jenni Middleton, commented: “We’ve been bowled over by witnessing this huge array of absolutely outstanding products. Some of them are incredible feats of engineering or demonstrations of phenomenal clinical know-how, and some of them are brilliantly genius in their simplicity and ability to change lives. But in all of them, the winning products have solved problems and made life so much better and easier, and more dignified – both for patients but also for nurses to deliver the very best care.”
