Last time we spoke about ward screens we showed you some interesting messages we had developed with Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Since then we’ve continued to put more ward screens up in a variety of hospitals, and new messages and ideas have swirled around us in a virtual eddy of creativity. So, let’s take a closer look at few of the great new messages that have surfaced and are now entertaining and informing audiences in wards near you.
This is a great welcome message for Manvers Ward, at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. It manages to include a few useful pieces of information in one place without becoming cluttered and text heavy. Visiting times, protected meal times and protected rest times are all neatly laid out for the benefit of patients and visitors.
2. Daily Routine
This second message from Imperial College Healthcare is also a great addition to the ward screen genre. It gives a somewhat detailed breakdown of what the daily routine is on the ward, letting patients know what to expect and when to expect it. Also useful for visitors who aren’t used to a hospital environment.
Heres’s a third wonderful message that really helps out patients and visitors who may feel a little lost. It’s from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and this message gives a clear visual of every staff uniform in the ward, so everyone is easily identified. It saves time and makes finding the right person for an enquiry a lot easier!
Also on the topic of staffing from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is this one which shows clearly and publicly how many staff are one the ward, vs how many were planned to be there. It uses an RSS fees so that the hospital can edit it themselves as often as they need to, making it an efficient and easy way to bring safety statistics into the ward environment.
