Our Ergonomically-Designed Pill Crushers

Make Administering Medication Easy

Many people have difficulty or the inability to swallow pills. The medical term for this difficulty is Dysphagia. Some are truly challenged with this and others just have an aversion to swallowing pills. In fact, there are many reasons that medications can be difficult to swallow. This can affect people of all ages, as well as pets and some large animals.

When this occurs, and there are no liquid or other alternative medication forms, pills may need to be crushed into a powder and sprinkled into food such as applesauce or pudding, or mixed into a liquid to be taken. Some may have feeding tubes and medication must be crushed into a fine powder to be delivered safely and effectively though their feeding tube. The easiest and most effective way to crush medications is with a pill crusher. Some may also refer to a pill crusher as a tablet crusher or pill grinder.

Pill crushing has long been a practice in clinical healthcare settings such as hospitals, long term care, extended care facilities, pharmacies, hospice care and more. Often pills are crushed for the same reason you would crush pills at home, because they are difficult or impossible for some to swallow. In healthcare settings there are other needs for pill crushing, such as neuro, critical care, or rehabilitation care settings where patients cannot be administered solid pills. Often pills are crushed into a fine powder and delivered by enteral tube feeding.

There are different types and styles of pill crushers used by healthcare professionals in clinical settings. Much of this is determined by the policies adopted by the medical facility as well as compliance with regulatory bodies such as The Joint Commission. Healthcare facilities look to establish best practices based on standard of care.

 Maxpert Medical has expertly designed pill crushers that help healthcare professionals with medication preparation and administration processes.

Our MAXGRIND® Lite Pill Crusher and Grinder is a great tool for patient dedicated or patient specific pill crushing. With MAXGRIND® Lite, one would be provided to each patient that has a requirement for pills to be crushed. A MAXGRIND® Lite pill crusher would be kept in the patient’s room and used specifically for that single patient only. MAXGRIND Lite might be kept in a locked cabinet, bedside cart, or tray so the caregiver has quick access to it when needed.

With Maxpert Medical’s MAXGRIND® Lite Pill Crusher a nurse can insert a standard 30 ml plastic medication cup into the bottom of the attached cup on MAXGRIND so that when pills are crushed, the powder empties directly into the 30 ml plastic cup. This allows the nurse to remove the plastic medication cup and complete preparation and administration with less mess and a reduced chance of lost medication if medication is transferred from the crusher to the medication cup anyway, which is a common practice. If a patient is hospitalized, they may take MAXGRIND® Lite home with them when discharged. If a medical center has a meds to beds program a new MAXGRIND® Lite Pill Crusher could be given to them when they go home so they have a means to crush pills.

Cup and pouch pill crushers are also commonly used by healthcare professionals. We offer an ergonomic and easy-to-use MAXCRUSH® M200 Cup Pill Crusher. With our cup pill crusher a two medication cup method is used to prevent cross contamination and minimize pill dust in the air. Our MAXCRUSH® Pill Crusher is very durable, and crushes and grinds medications simultaneously. This would be more of a family pill crusher shared amongst multiple patients with a pill crushing need. A nurse would clean the crusher between uses and use new medication cups for each patient. For those healthcare professionals using pouch style pill crushers where pills are crushed inside of a small clear plastic crushing bag, we offer our MAXCRUSH® Pill Crusher Pouch with fold-in safety flaps that help eliminate powder from being released in the air while crushing.

Maxpert Medical has pill crushers and accessories that are helpful and designed with you in mind whether you are using a patient dedicated pill crushing model or that in which cups or pouches are used.
