Patient Safety Innovation recognised at RCNi Awards 2016.

Nurses from across the UK celebrated clinical excellence and innovation at the 2016 RCNi Nurse Awards, held at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel in London. In particular the work to develop the new Banana ReDi Slide slide sheet was recognised at a glittering ceremony, hosted by comedian Lucy Porter. Diane Hindson, Back Care Adviser at Country Durham and Darlington NHS Trust, designed the ReDi Slide, which helps to ensure patient safety and reduce the risk of injury to staff when patients are moved or repositioned in bed. Diane’s innovative design was Highly Commended in the ‘Innovations in your Speciality Award’, sponsored by Liverpool Victoria. Leading UK manufacturer GBUK Healthcare are adding Diane’s design to their Banana patient moving and handling product range.
