how about inviting one of the companies to sponsor the Equipment Library?


Don't make me laugh; a PFI company putting something back in to the NHS.

How do you manage with 36 Pressure mattresses?

Hereford is a similar size Rural Trust etc and we struggle with twice as many.

We are lucky enough to be in a new build, all doors are acces controlled by swipecard.
Out of hours the nurses have swipe card access to MEL. They log what they take on a sheet and the MEL staff update the loan database when they next come in.
Seems to work ok for us.

At the present time we are running a RFID trial with the Library Equipment. Soon it will be able to be logged to the patient notes.
Each infusion pump has a RFID tag located on the device which just needs to be swiped over a black pad which is located in each ward for it to show where the device is on my system.
