The Bag developed from Birmingham Community Healthcare as they 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.
Staff who have received the new bags have expressed how much better they are in the teams and prefer them to the other bags used and the weight of the equipment carried has been reduced, as this has allowed them to carry the necessary equipment as and when needed when conducting home visits.
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. This involves a Scales Bag and Observation Bag which attach together allowing items to be carried efficiently.
