We are the makers of possible: BD Urology and Critical Care Product Specialist Doing ‘Angels Work’
Hamed Aldabeis is passionate about helping lower the risk of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs). More specifically, Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs).
The Saudi Arabian-based Product Specialist with BD Interventional – Urology and Critical Care strongly believes in supporting better patient outcomes, starting with helping reduce CAUTI. Hamed noted that he and the team work hard to help educate healthcare professionals about the reduction of CAUTI in hospital settings across the country. Typically, when a patient does get CAUTI, the care facility incurs more costs, and it also adversely impacts the patient.
“We do have some hospitals with whom we’ve partnered and they now include our PureWickTM female external catheter and SurestepTM BardexTM I.C. Foley Trays as part of their patient protocol, which is satisfying knowing we helped them. I call what we do ‘angels work’ because we are serving them and helping them at very vulnerable times,” said Hamed.
Shifting from a distributor to working for BD
Hamed came to BD full-time after working for a medical device distributor for a few years. He said he has no regrets given the BD culture, work environment, and people.
“This is my third job out of university, and I could not be happier. BD is an amazing place. I felt like I fit right in on my first day here. We have a small team of three of us covering a large territory and we always find time to help and support each other,” explained Hamed. “I also love connecting with the larger BD network around the world. Everyone here is approachable and supportive.”
At BD, we’ve built an intentional work culture that challenges us all to not only be our best but help bring out the best in others. We encourage each other to succeed, collaborate seamlessly across functions and borders, and aren’t afraid to share our unique perspectives. All voices belong at our table as we continually push the limits of possible.
BD = People, Possibilities, and Purpose
Hamed best describes the organization in one word: progress. “There is a significant amount of emphasis placed on continuous learning and development. By having access to BD University, I can learn at a pace that suits me, which I appreciate,” he said. “Everywhere you look within this company, progress is being made – whether it’s innovating on a new solution or building a new facility to support growth – every day when you look on our intranet site, there is progress here at BD. I truly think this is a place where the career possibilities are limitless.”
