Birmingham Community Healthcare had seen an increase in incidents through the trust mainly from nursing staff who had suffered musculoskeletal injuries whilst carrying equipment to and from patients homes in the community. A review was undertaken by staff in various teams and it was identified that there was no consistent approach to the bags used across the trust, various shapes, sizes and materials were used which increased the risk of injury and added to issues around infection control.
After working with Openhouse, Birmingham Community Care used a number of ideas to develop a bag that would meet the needs of all the teams and be large enough to carry the items they require on a day to day basis, without the additional space to overload the bags. A solution was designed to allow staff to pick and choose what part of the bag they needed, rather than taking all items in one go.
The Trolley Bag has been designed allowing users to be able to carry their required equipment to and from homes efficiently, preventing injury. The Trolley Bag has been created to be hard wearing and reliable for users as it is made from an astro board box for strength and durability. The Trolley Bag is equipt with a grab handle on top and also metal extendable handle for when on the move to and from locations. The inside of the the trolley holds two pouches allowing additional items to be kept safe and secure, the pouches are clear topped allowing the contents inside to be visible and identified when needed.
The Trolley Bag is designed in conjunction with the Observation Bag and Scales Bag working together efficiently lightening workloads for users. All three designs are compatible with each other. Referring to the use of the Trolley Bag the Observation and Scales bag attached together allowing them to be attached to the trolley through a sleeve.
The bag is made MicrAgard™ Plus wipe clean material which is exclusive to Openhouse and extremely robust. the material is available in 8 colors.
