“To ensure the safety of our patients, we constantly look out for ways to improve, such as enhancing the medicine cups to easily distinguish between pre-meal and post-meal medications."
I am currently working on the improvisation of medicine cups to better distinguish between pre-meal and post-meal medications for patients. By applying the Kaizen approach of improving productivity and encouraging continual improvement, we came up with simple, colourful diagrams on stickers that can be applied to the medicine cups to avoid confusion. These stickers will be rolled out hospital-wide and be especially helpful for our elderly patients.
