Well Organised ward (WOW) • West 3 ward • Dynamap stations • Store rooms x 2 • Hoist Station • Drug cupboards • Sluice
Dynamaps before: Not all in one place Untidy Batteries flat as not plugged in Sats probe often broken because left on floor Time taken to find dynamap, stock up and plug in when at the patient’s bed = 6 minutes 41 seconds
Dynamap station, After: Dynamaps located in two defined areas on the ward Left tidy Plugged in Stocked with appropriate paperwork and equipment Time taken to collect dynamap from station and take to patient = 1 minute 41 seconds That’s a saving of 5 minutes
