On our feedback surveys several patients mentioned that the bins we had in the bay were noisy when staff closed them during the night and therefore disturbed their sleep
We researched bins and found some with slow self closing lids which meant they didn't bang when closed.
We purchased one and trialled it in one of the 3 ward bays.
It was successful and therefore we purchased one for each bay.
Result No further comments re the noisy bins on the patient feedback forms and patients are getting a better nights sleep therefore assisting with their rehabilitation.
