OK, not a long story... I just need some new ideas hopefully. I am trying to re-figure my current peds crash cart for our 18 bed ER. Currently i have a Breslow style cart. Color coded drawers with all the equipment but no meds kept in our cart. We pull ours from the pyxis. Our current cart is to small for all the equiptment so the drawers are packed to the gills and are messy and unorganized. When you open the individual drawers the ett's and ng's fall out the back and get stuck. I've been told that i will not get another actual cart and that i need to make this one work....grrrrr.
So my thought is why cant the drawers be individualized for their needs? ie: an airway, iv, ng, and foley drawer. I have found that with our color coded system more than one drawer gets opened anyways when digging for the correct equiptment.
Has anyone seen a peds crash cart done this way before?? Thanks
