As the COVID-19 pandemic peaks, many hospital pharmacies are experiencing huge pressure to increase their production of drugs needed for treating patients, both those with coronavirus and those with other critical illnesses.
One solution identified by Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is to provide a clean air environment for nurses to make up high volumes of injections for use in their intensive care unit, without needing to further burden the hospital pharmacy.
They contacted Envair, and in a record 10 days, we had specified the solution (our HLF horizontal unidirectional airflow cabinet), delivered, installed and commissioned the unit, all whilst maintaining safe social distancing measures.
We were only too happy to play our small part in helping tackle the crisis and are delighted that the unit is now in use, helping the intensive care nurses treat patients more quickly.
“Our intensive care nurses have needed extra capacity to make up high volumes of injections, due to the high number of coronavirus patients we’re treating. Envair’s HLF workstation provides this clean environment and they responded to our request for help in record time.”
