CSM Direct Medserve
The medserve is a medication cabinet designed to reduce nurse's trips to the med room. This is done by filling this cabinet prior to med distribution as opposed to making a trip per patient to the med room. Below I go through the full process oh how this product went from idea to final concept.
Hallway Medication Storage
Nurses are spending too much time making trips to the med room.
Each med room takes about 10 minutes. Average trips per patient is 4 in a normal nurse shift. Nurse normally handles 6 patients. That’s 24 med room trips or 240 minutes - 4hours
The original proposal was a med cart that is able to be tracked on the hospital floor. The issue was even with tracking the cart it can be moved to an inconvenient place.
After tracking nurses on shift we realized we needed a more centralized system to deliver meds to each patient. The concept of secure hallway storage for each nurse reduces medroom traffic and better tracks patient meds.
It all started here
Nurses will now take one med trip per med period using the med server
Nurse will get meds for one med pass which is a 4 hour period. That is 3 trips to the med room per shift. Each med room trip will take longer but the nurse will only take 1 hour walking to the med room.Up to 3 more hours for patients.
