Idea 1: Multifunctional Bedside Equipment Cart


With the development of the hospital area, the number of acute and critically ill patients admitted and treated has increased, and the demand for resuscitation equipment from patients has also increased. However, some of the old ward buildings are not easy to install towers for various reasons, as well as some of the resuscitation units or intensive care units have space limitations, which makes the placement of numerous resuscitation equipment more tricky. To solve this problem, a multifunctional bedside equipment cart was designed.




Scope of application: emergency resuscitation rooms, ward resuscitation units, and various intensive care units.



1. Multi-layer design, easy to place a variety of resuscitation equipment and items, saving space.

2. Movable design, easy to transfer, can also be placed at a fixed location, the use of a wide range.

3. Easy to clean and disinfect, using chlorine disinfectant or disinfectant wipes can be wiped.

4. Multi-row jacks are set on both sides and back side of the equipment cart to meet the use of a variety of equipment.

5. Compared with the more hanging tower, greatly reduce the cost.


Idea 2: Sterile Gloves Clever Use


See the sterile rubber gloves, we first think of the medical staff aseptic operation only when it is used, especially in film and television works, doctors in surgery for patients, will certainly see it. In fact, ah, in clinical care work, it can be of great use, a nurse from the intensive care unit, the small sterile gloves, innovative invention of a variety of functions.


A. The sterile rubber glove is inflated and used as a simple support airbag to fix the ventilator breathing line, which can maintain the height of the breathing line and facilitate the return flow of condensate, and also avoid the bending of the line to effectively ensure the smooth flow of the line.



B. For some patients with fractures requiring bone traction, sterile gloves can be fixed between the traction brace and the patient's skin after being filled with water, which increases the force area, reduces local pressure, and effectively prevents pressure sores caused by the traction brace on the patient. Similarly, placing the water-filled sterile gloves under the patient's heel or at the elbow, which are prone to pressure sores, increases the force area, reduces local pressure, makes it very convenient to observe the patient's skin and blood flow, and reduces the occurrence of pressure sores.


The clever use of sterile gloves is ideal for clinical care and is cost effective and can be flexibly applied to all clinical departments.


Idea 3: The smart use of sterile three-way valve in indwelling double-lumen catheter


Indwelling double-lumen catheter is a common basic nursing operation technique in clinical practice, which is widely used for observation of urine output in patients with urinary difficulties, after anesthesia and surgery, etc. It is an important tool to promote recovery of bladder function in patients with urinary retention and urinary incontinence.


Nurses often use indwelling double-lumen catheters to perform bladder irrigation and administer medication to patients. The traditional method of operation requires opening the connector and using the drainage tube alternately with the infuser, which is prone to detachment and also easily causes infection in patients due to contamination.

From the urology nurses at work, these problems are easily solved.


Cut off the front end of the drainage tube about 10 cm with sterile scissors, while opening an infusion set, removing the intravenous infusion needle, and cutting off the medication filter for backup. Connect the broken ends of the drainage bag and the cut off medication filter closely to the tee tube, and connect the upper end of the drainage tube to the urinary catheter, using the multi-directional nature of the tee tube to open the lateral channel linking the infusion set when the bladder is flushed and medication is given.




This method is simple to operate and does not require opening the connector again when flushing the bladder or administering medication to the patient, reducing the contamination that may be caused by improper operation and effectively avoiding the occurrence of infection in the patient. It not only reduces the pain caused to the patient by changing the three-lumen catheter, but also, at the same time, is inexpensive and reduces the financial burden of the patient.


How about that? After seeing the nurses' ingenious ideas, don't you want to give them a big compliment! These seemingly simple small inventions and innovations are novel in conception and reasonable in design, and can be flexibly applied to many areas of nursing work.


Moreover, they are inexpensive and easy to operate, and play a great role in clinical work, and bring together the great wisdom of nurses. If you think it's good, share it with your fellow nurses around you and use it quickly. We also encourage you to think outside the box and create more useful inventions in your clinical work.
