Taking control of nursing rounds

Monday, 29 April, 2019

Nurse rounds are a crucial component in delivering optimal patient care, but we recognise that they can be taxing for the professionals conducting them...

Modsel products are created with this in mind, and are designed to make looking after patients safer, easier and more efficient for you. We understand the inherent restraints and challenges of the healthcare system and also how rounds trolleys can be designed and built to work within this system, to equip healthcare professionals with the best tools to get the job done. Some factors to consider when using a trolley to do the patient rounds is;

  • Safety – the risks of sharp or harsh edges from badly designed or poorly maintained equipment.
  • Environment – cramped workspaces can create awkward movement, such as bending or twisting.
  • Ease of use - the number of times a trolley is handled and the distances or length of time it is moved.
  • Security – is there sensitive equipment that would be better kept out of another person’s direct reach.
  • Load on your body – poorly wheeled, heavy equipment or working in fixed postures for prolonged periods.

The best trolleys are built to be light and easy to move, with positioning choice, unobtrusive in tight spaces, soft rounded edges and with secure storage - making them perfect for busy healthcare environments. 

We know that conducting rounds can be particularly taxing on the body, so we’ve created rounds trolleys that are fully customisable to suit not only the purpose, but the person using them. The ability to adjust the trolley height from a sitting to standing position or for different height personnel, the shape and size of the work surface depending on your needs, means you can protect your body, perform your tasks with ease and provide your patients with the best possible care.

The best manufacturers are consistently innovating and working with healthcare professionals to identify and produce the most user-friendly products on the market, so that you can focus on doing what you do best.
