Anesthesia cart challenge | The Magic Button
The project team Sleeping Clean Beauty have developed a concept to help with efficient handover. Our original concept suggested an easy tool as to help the nurses signal to each other if a cart had been restocked with material or not. From this simple design sprung the foundation to what we now call The magic button. A simple, yet magic, button that signal to the next shift in which state the anesthesia cart has been left. We visualize the magic button concept as an app, through which scanning of a QR-code will either ask you to check and restock the cart, or let you know that it’s ready for use. The app also keeps track of the amount of material present in the cart, and produces an inventory list of what needs to be refilled from storage.
