Key Code Operated Secure Medical Records Trolleys
Case Note Trolleys Manufactured for Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust
Following a CQC inspection we were asked by Northampton General Hospital NHS trust to design and manufacture a Secure Medical records trolley for use in all their wards. The CQC identified shortcomings with their storage of patient’s medical records on the wards. They considered the method of storage used by the trust to be unacceptable and required urgent improvements to be made. The CQC considered the current method used by the Hospital to be insecure. Patients Medical records as currently stored could be accessed by unauthorised persons which was unacceptable.
To this end the Hospital swiftly put into action measures to improve the storage of patient’s medical records. This consisted of a tender to interested and able parties who could offer and cost a Secure Medical records trolley. The system used by Northampton General Hospital in this case was “ProContract”. This is an E tendering system used to submit tender enquiries.
