The mobile healthcare equipment manufacturer delivered a custom-made solution freeing up staff to concentrate on their essential day-to-day tasks
Less storage equipment around the bed was an important factor in the design of the newly extended ICU at the internationally renowned Glenfield Hospital in Leicester.
Working with the nursing teams and Estates department, Agile Medical are proud to have recently supplied 33x Double Chart top trolleys situated at the end of each bed space, customised to suit the requirements of the clinicians.
Due to the size and large storage capacity of the Double Trolley, clinicians have easy and quick access to all the patient’s medication and notes they need which has also helped to save much needed space around the bed.
Matron on the ICU commented: “We extended our Intensive Care Unit and wanted to source a trolley that was multifunctional; it’s a chart trolley that has space for the ICU nurse to sit in comfort and rest their feet whilst recording observations; it’s a stores trolley for everyday supplies and has easy access to gloves and hand sanitiser; it has a secure drawer for notes and a secure drawer for drugs to comply with storage regulations; and it has a worktop and pull out shelf to use whilst drawing up drugs or writing notes.
"Being on wheels, it is easy to reposition and big enough for several staff to work around at the same time.
"We have added a magnetic board for patient information that signposts staff and identifies the trolley as belonging to that patient.
"Agile Medical listened to our requirements and bought ideas and samples to our unit before we purchased 33 customised trolleys, and we are delighted with the result”.
