It was exciting to see the new Integrated Medication Carts roll out at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital throughout the first week of December. These carts are one of the first of many changes that are part of the new way of practicing health and care with IHealth.
Ten different units had teams of nurses, educators and clinical leaders working together on the physical transition from the old med carts to the state-of-the-art integrated carts. Teams had the opportunity to learn how to use this powerful new tool in practice, with patients and each other.

The roll out of the Integrated Medication Carts moves Island Health one step closer to One Patient, One Record, One Plan for Health and Care.
