Ideally, a nurse should be on a ward, observing and caring for patients. However, in reality the NHS environment is a frenetic place. There are high workloads and continuous administrative tasks. This reduces the clinical staff’s ability to spend time at the patient’s side. Therefore, Staff should utilise mobile technology using medical trolleys, to manage everyday demands of the NHS, and attend to patient’s.
Good clinical care is all about information and communication. Therefore, electronic systems are being used to provide clinical staff with accurate information about patients in their care. The whole team can share this information. Additionally, they can give the most appropriate care available with less chance of error. Used effectively, it ensures changes in patients’ conditions are noted in real time. Consequently, enabling early recognition and deliver quick action.
Mobile technology helps doctors, nurses and other clinical staff to spend more time on wards. This in turn means that they are more visible to other staff, patients and visitors. A key reason to integrate technology into your routine, is that it gives your staff more time to be where they are needed most. There are medical trolleys with drawers or iPad trolleys that make using technology a piece of cake.
What Are The Next Steps For Technology?
Adopting technology and electronic systems bring clear advantages. Therefore, the drive towards systems that are modular and able to talk to one another, is the next logical step. We could see all sorts of systems integrating with one another. This can provide insight into patient care, allowing staff to do what they trained to do – provide the care. Additionally, it would take the pressure off, having to complete administrative tasks, away from the patient’s bedside.
