Innovative nursing products win awards

  • Comment

The best nursing products were celebrated at the Nursing Times Product Awards 2010 at London’s Hilton Hotel, Park Lane this week.

The awards have been set up to recognise and reward the products that are transforming patient care and helping healthcare professionals work efficiently.

Innovation and practicality are both fundamental attributes for the devices and products that nurses use on a daily basis. High quality products enable nurses to work more effectively in a clinical environment and are essential for improving patient safety and assisting in daily care, observation and treatment.

The finalists were judged by a panel of clinical and industry experts to determine the winners in each category, which, in this inaugural year, were of an extremely high standard.

The afternoon event was hosted by Nursing Times Editor, Jenni Middleton, who said: “We’ve been bowled over by witnessing this huge array of absolutely outstanding products. Some of them are incredible feats of engineering or demonstrations of phenomenal clinical know-how, and some of them are brilliantly genius in their simplicity and ability to change lives. But in all of them, you have solved problems and made life so much better and easier, and more dignified – both for patients but also for nurses to deliver the very best care.”

Winners and shortlisted entrants were able to network with the great and good from the industry and celebrate their success at the drinks reception.
