Drug round tabards improve the efficiency and accuracy of drug distribution on hospital wards by informing patients, visitors and other staff not to disturb nurses unnecessarily. Reducing drug errors increases safety and improves the patient environment whilst reducing the cost and waste resulting from mistakes. Fewer interruptions also mean nurses are able to make better use of their time. GV Health single use drug round tabards have been developed in collaboration with a number of NHS Trusts. This input has directed the overall tabard design and construction as well as colour, wording and fit. The single size tabard can be adjusted to fit all shapes and builds. They are suitable for use in all types of ward including general medical, surgical and SCBU. 60% Cost Reduction Compared to Laundered Tabards A recent study undertaken at a major UK general hospital found the cost of laundered drug round tabards works out at between 41 to 43 pence per use. Single use disposable tabards cost 17.5 pence each - representing a saving of almost 60%. Disposable tabards also significantly reduce the risk of cross contamination.
