Surgery staff design safer anaesthetic tray

  • Comment

An anaesthetic tray designed to improve patient safety in operating theatres has been developed by theatre staff at Poole Hospital in Dorset, in conjunction with UK company Vernacare.

The single-use “Vernatray” has individual troughs to ensure the correct alignment of syringes and a separate storage area for ampoules and sharps.

It is intended to make it easier for theatre staff to locate relevant equipment, reducing the risk of incorrect medication being administered.
