Organization sought out state-of-the-art technology

MINNEAPOLIS – Skyline Medical Inc. (OTCQB: SKLN) is installing three direct-to-drain STREAMWAY Fluid Waste Management Systems at Prairie Ridge Hospital and Health Services' facilities in Minnesota. The sales include two units installed recently at a new replacement facility in Elbow Lake, Minnesota, and one to be installed at the group's Morris outpatient center in May.

"The philosophy with our new facility was to bring state-of-the art technology to the smaller communities we serve," said Manda Westrom, RN, Director of Nursing at Prairie Ridge, which operates five health campuses in central Minnesota. "Skyline's STREAMWAY System is the most advanced technology in waste fluid management, so it was a logical choice. As the industry's first truly automated system, it's safer and more efficient for our staff than the suction canisters we were using," she said. "Nurses don't have to handle canisters full of potentially infectious waste fluid. Not only does that reduce exposure risk, it also saves time during procedures."

One of the Elbow Lake units is in an endoscopy procedure room, which represents a key market for STREAMWAY. "With the increased availability of minimally invasive endoscopic procedures and the aging of Baby Boomers, demand for endoscopy is rapidly increasing," said Josh Kornberg, CEO of Skyline Medical. "To help meet the increased demand and keep healthcare costs down, endoscopy departments are looking for ways to be more efficient. The fully automated STREAMWAY System eliminates procedure disruptions so busy endoscopy departments can accommodate more cases per day," he noted.

The Prairie Ridge installations are among 55 STREAMWAY units already scheduled for sale or trial in early 2014.

About Skyline Medical Inc.

Skyline Medical Inc. produces a fully automated, patented, FDA-cleared, waste fluid disposal system that virtually eliminates staff exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the healthcare environment. Antiquated manual fluid handling methods -- which require hand carrying and emptying filled-fluid canisters -- present an exposure risk and potential liability. Skyline Medical's STREAMWAY System fully automates the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluids and is designed to: 1) reduce overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, 2) improve compliance with Occupational State and Health Association (OSHA) and other regulatory agency safety guidelines, 3) improve efficiency in the operating room, and radiology and endoscopy departments - leading to greater profitability, and 4) provide greater environmental stewardship by helping to eliminate the approximately 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters that go into landfills annually in the United States.
