University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay







Dalen Healthcare were approached by University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust to propose healthcare cart solutions for an upcoming Lorenzo EPMA rollout project.

Following an initial consultation, Dalen Healthcare were able to understand the Trust’s concerns and start to formulate ideas on how to support the rollout.

Dalen visited the Trust to discuss the proposed solution and refine key details until an agreed specification could be reached.

The Brief

The Trust’s primary objective was to source carts with ergonomic and mobile working at the forefront of their design to help improve staff well-being, whilst also providing an effective base for electronic prescribing.

Around 70 carts were required for use on wards across the Trust. Each cart also needed to incorporate accessories such as a sharps bin and a docking bracket.

Key Project Criteria

•  Improve staff well-being through a height adjustable solution, reducing lost time to back complaints

•  Effectively integrate a PC and on-board battery to facilitate the use of the new Lorenzo EPMA system

•  Improve efficiency and reduce errors while carrying out core activities

•  Provide a large lockable storage space to secure medicines & samples

Our Solution

Dalen Healthcare proposed two customised solutions to fit the specifications based on the OmniCart Pro range. The OmniCart Pro can be configured for EPMA with a series of features and accessories:

❶ Integrated PC & On-board Battery

Each unit features secure storage for a Dell Optiplex 3050 Micro PC and an on-board Lithium Iron Phosphate battery, resulting in an ‘all-in-one’ fully integrated healthcare cart solution.

Electrically Height Adjustable

The OmniCart features a fully electrically height adjustable worktop and an independently height adjustable screen allowing each user to adjust to a comfortable working height.

Open Front With Large Storage Space

The Trust required a large lockable storage space for medicine and samples to secure the stock whilst the cart was not in use.

Anti-Bacterial Cleanable Surfaces

Each cart was specified with Anti-Bacterial paint, worktop and drawers as standard to reduce risk of infection.

 Secure Screen Mount

With Swivel and tilt for Dell P2317H


The Result

Since the installation, the versatile OmniCart solutions are being used throughout the Trust, supporting the use of the Lorenzo EPMA system at the patient’s bedside.

The new carts have facilitated the seamless integration of digitised systems into the Trust’s daily working practices.

The cart’s mobility and practicality enables staff to spend more time at the patients side putting care first, while improving efficiency and accuracy.
