Openhouse Products, working with the North London Critical Care Network (NWLCCN) have developed the Critical Care Patient Transfer bag to deliver standardised equipment and quick ‘at a glance’ checking to support front line staff when transferring critically ill patients.
The patient transfer bag delivers standardised equipment and ‘at a glance’ checking capability to support front line staff when transferring critically ill patients.
The bag was designed with human factors at the forefront and facilitates quick and easy access during a transfer. Clinical staff no longer have to carry the bag when managing patients as it is easily attaches on to hospital and ambulance beds and trolleys.
This bag opens up to present users with colour coded and clearly labelled modules for quick access. The modules have an ‘open book’ design and clear panels to enable easy identification of required items and reduce checking time. Each module has been designed to hold the standardised transfer content for the individual category e.g. Advanced Airway.
In order to reduce the volume of equipment carried on a transfer we have added a clear patient pocket, specifically designed to carry items relating to the individual patient being transferred. A widespread and comprehensive consensus (published) used the expertise and Hi experience of many clinicians to safely reduce the volume of transfer equipment carried.
