    2. Automation: technology-enabled task-management; and
    3. Tracking: leveraging RTLS (real-time location-services) to 'keep-tabs' on essential equipment, materials and people.

    Industry Leaders Workshop 3: The Future of Bed Reprocessing to reduce Hospital Acquired Infections

    Traditional methods of managing patient-bed-hygiene present huge time, logistical, employee-safety, infection-control and compliance challenges, for hospitals (manual-handling procedures in the bed-washing-process; dealing with potential contamination; patient-bed drying-time; overall co-ordination of bed-reprocessing, etc). This workshop will help signpost the pathway to OSKA’s 100/100 vision – 100% clean, 100% of the time - for hospital facilities teams, moving towards an automation-supported ‘total-bed-management’ approach, whilst promoting a gold standard for IPC, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.

    The Illusion Of Choice: Understand Patient Experience of Hospital Food

    A project to understand patient experience of food delivery and how the patient was ‘centred’ in food choice and their experience was developed in 2018, by social scientists, Dr Kathy Doherty, Dr Kerry McSeveny and packaging ergonomist Professor Alaster Yoxall of the Culture and Communication Research Institute. This followed on from work by Yoxall looking at patient experience of packaged food in the hospital environment which raised some complex questions about how food made patients feel, how patient choice was made, why patients did not get the food they were supposed to and how the ‘system’ connected together.
