21st Century Nursing Bag by David Swann
Globally, over one billion people now receive patient care away from a building called a hospital. Community nurses need new tools specifically designed to tackle the challenges posed by this setting. The current bags they use are unsafe and unfit for the purpose, and they increase the risk of patients contracting a drug resistant infection because the bags are not made from materials that actively prevent an infection in spreading from one patient to the next.
The 21st Century Nursing Bag addresses the challenges that the modern community nurse faces in her daily work. A modular drawer system improves the organization of clinical materials, increases productivity and reduces the physical strain on the nurse. (INDEX Award finalist project)
