The Magic Button
There is a problem at Södersjukhuset with how to inform the next shift of what has not been done. Therefore the original purpose of the magic button was to improve communication between shifts.
The idea was to introduce an app or other form of digital communication in which a nurse could signal to the next shift which tasks had been completed and which had not. From feedback from the nurses it was realized that this app could be expanded to include more things such as enabling the ordering of materials directly to the operation theater rather than to the unit storage.
An app like this would be an improvement in efficiency and free up time for the nurses to work with their core responsibilities. More time to do your work would mean less stress and that the nurses have more time to focus on the details such as hand hygiene and keeping the work environment clean.
