  • Patent number: 11969571
    Abstract: A multi-use disinfecting cap and method for disinfection and protection of a needleless IV injection port. The disinfecting cap has an upper chamber which contains a sterilizing solution and a low chamber which connects to a needleless IV injection port. The fluid can be manipulated to flow between the two chambers. When in use the cap protects and disinfects a needleless IV injection port when exposed prior to injecting medication into the needleless port and continues to disinfect and protect prior for any subsequent exposures. The cap is re-usable and provides a clear indication of the disinfecting solution and a datable top surface. The multi-use disinfecting cap may be removably clipped to the IV tubing and is shaped to prevent accidental rolling away if dropped.

  • Publication number: 20220270027
    Abstract: An online system receives, scans from a plurality of picker client devices. Each scan comprises an item identifier and a location in a store where the item was scanned. The online system creates a map of the store based on location data received from a picker client device as a picker moves around the store. Using the map and the scans, the online system builds a planogram of the store. The planogram comprises a mapping of a plurality of locations in the store to one or more items at each of the plurality of locations. The online system receives an order of items to be fulfilled at the store from a customer client device and determines location information describing locations of the items in the store based on the planogram. The online system transmits, to a picker mobile device, the location information for display.
