MakerNurse Assista Nurses with Medical Hacks

NewImage

Incredible movement within the medical community! From MakerNurse via Fast Company:

MakerNurse honors the inventive spirit of nurses across America and seeks to bring nurse making to the forefront of health care.

Nurses have been solving issues of patient care for more than 100 years, customizing medical equipment and making new devices that ensure patient comfort and safety. Yet too often nurse-made solutions do not spread beyond the unit where they were created, or worse, are never built, remaining just a sketch on the back of a napkin.

MakerNurse provides tools and resources to enhance resourcefulness and innovation among nurses, and partners with health care institutions to nurture nurses’ creativity and ingenuity. With the right support, nurses can take their ideas and make them into something they can hold in their hands. It’s this everyday making that’s leading to better ways of caring for patients, not just the grandiose ideas that are incubated over decades.
