Use Vileda SWEP Mopping system in all of the wardsThe SWEP Mopping system has proven to be useful in the fight against HAI. Since Implementation there have been logistical issues inventory no mops getting them to the right person at the right time (the Domestic Staff) in the right place.Potential HAI issues
NHS Tayside used the Rapid Improvement Event model for this problem bringing together Domestics, Porters and Laundry Team members to analyse the current process, identify inefficiencies (using Lean Methodology) and implement new better processes to make life easier for them and the organisation.
I only want to do the best job I can to the standard that NHS Tayside expects

The RIE process identified that:
Ownership and managing the inventory was not as good as it could be and this was rectifiedLogistics of getting the items from the Laundry to the Wards was not very Lean.The different disciplines had no idea how the other half lived i.e. how the problem affected them. This process let them see the end to end.Domestics were hoarding the mops for fear of not getting more this just took even more out of the system.
Out for the count!74K per year spent on mops1170 mops short each day at PRI site alone17 hours per week per supervisor spent hunting for mopsStaff not able to start work on time - 30 minutes wasted each day (per domestic would = 600 minutesNo mops to clean- HAI issues -weekends no mops revert to old mopping systemForeign objects - everyday occurrence
Releasing Time to Clean!Inventory has been kick started with an Amnesty, a Stock Take and a request for funding for more stockTraining Materials/Posters have been put in place to maintain the optimum process.A dedicated delivery and pick up service is being formulated to ensure the right people get them at the right time in the right place.
