Colleagues are currently covering multiple staffing gaps and each drugs trolley has a variety of drugs and a different layout which could result in delays to patients receiving their medication or receiving the wrong medication in error along with poor staff satisfaction. Following a meeting with the Deputy Director of Nursing- Medicine, it was requested that all wards within the division are planned in to have a review of the drugs trolleys on the ward area and encouraged to utilise 5S principles.
