Nurses design ground-breaking resuscitation trolley

  • Comment

A new cutting-edge resuscitation trolley, which was designed by a multidisciplinary team including nurses, was on display at an exhibition last week

Items on display at the NHS Innovation Expo included a new resuscitation ‘crash’ trolley, which will support the cardiac arrest team by improving communication, coordination and overall efficiency.

It offers an innovative design ensuring equipment is easy to find and notifies staff when anything is missing or has expired.

The collaborative team included clinicians, psychologists and experts in patient safety from the Centre for Patient Safety and Service Quality at London’s Imperial College and designers from the Royal College of Art Helen Hamlyn Centre.

Health minister Lord Darzi said: ‘In order to provide 21st century healthcare we must come up with innovative solutions to the problems that can impact on quality care and even cost lives.

‘This new crash trolley is a perfect example and I applaud the design team that worked on this for their innovative thinking.’
