Report by clinical nurse Carmel Zucak

The ICU at Nepean Hospital Department in Penrith, Australia, was equipped with M-SHIFT and MODUTEC ceiling supply units. The unit conducted a three-month study on the changes associated with the M-SHIFT system, and how those changes affected the amount of nursing time needed for patient transfers. The nurses recorded the data, starting with the time they were told to bring a patient to the CT/MRT.

The mean nursing time taken to prepare infusions for transfer was 32.5 minutes with a range of 4 to 110 minutes. In a simulated environment the time to transfer infusions from the pendant to the bed using the M-SHIFT could be reduced significantly.

The introduction of M-SHIFT also eliminated the need to lift heavy pumps, reducing occupational health and safety issues for the hospital.

Nursing staff had positive opinions about the change to M-SHIFT.  

"Higher staff satisfaction with interdepartmental transfer facilitated by M-SHIFT."
"First positive signs indicate that personnel are very satisfied with the change. No more pumps need to be used, which relieves staff from heavy workloads."
