THE PROBLEM

DSC_0013.jpg

The Fluid Balance

Many patients  suffer from different diseases related to the stomach, intestines, bladder and/or kidney. These patients have their fluid balance monitored. The patient's fluid intake and output are measured and registered by a nurse. The fluid balance is an indicator of the patient's health; whether it is improving or worsening.

The measurement

An alarm  rings - this means a patient has one or two bedpans ready for measurement. The nurse then retrieves the bedpans and brings them to another room further down the ward. Here, the urine and stools are weighed on a scale or measured in a measuring cup. Afterwards, the bedpans and cups are cleaned, discarded in a shredder or thrown out. The results are written on the fluid balance chart back in the patient's room.

The experience

Imagine handing over your urine and stools to a nurse.

- Going to the toilet is normally very private and not something  you share with others.

 

Then imagine being the nurse having to handle a patient's urine and stools. The nurse has to handle these with a smile every time. It's very embarrassing for the patient and it's a degrading procedure for the nurse.

The PAINS

Discomforting experience for patient and nurse

Time-consuming and disruptive for the nurse

Unpleasant to handle

Inaccurate data

High consumption of materials
