After signing a long-term contract to provide Nervecentre patient safety software, University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust has successfully deployed our Hospital at Night solution.
The new system that ensures patient safety through the efficient coordination of medical tasks across wards at night-time has successfully launched in August and instantly realised positive results.
The software ensures ward requests are electronically sent to the Acute Care Team coordinators who assign tasks to medical colleagues with a single click. The software contains real-time information enabling an overview of which doctors are available, where they are, and their current workloads.
The new system was implemented without a hitch and involved months of planning and testing from many teams across the Trust.
The next phase is to replace the current ED management system with the Nervecentre solution which will include the ability to take electronic observations and improve sepsis pathways.
Testimonials from University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust:
Dr Marc Bertagne
“The system is well designed and easy to use. The combination of receiving audible alerts upon the allocation of a task with the ability to instantly message colleagues regarding patient care, enables the junior doctors to work efficiently during out of hours operations.”
Paul McArdle, Deputy Medical Director
“It is patient care that sits at the very centre of this rollout. Hospital at Night provides information that ultimately means significant benefits in both efficiencies and safety for our patients and our staff.”
“The professionalism of the teams involved throughout this programme of work has been exemplary. It is made even more impressive with the operational pressures we are currently facing. I am always proud of the work of our teams here in the Trust, but when projects of this magnitude are implemented into the organisation, it makes me feel incredibly proud to see the work of so many come together for the benefit of our patients and help our colleague’s workloads more manageable.”
