I was so pleased to visit yesterday to see how well this is working out. Everyone I spoke to was full of praise for the new unit – I was reassured to see how robust it is and glad to see it is very easy to use.
The staff highlighted the benefit for patients in terms of increased independence and they have noticed a dramatic decline in interruptions.
The risk of infection is reduced as staff are not handing patients e-cigarettes.
The risk of fire has reduced as the charging unit is fire proof and is significantly safer than using the multi-chargers in the office.

Indeed from the moment the unit was installed, we saw a significant drop in frequency patients approaching the nursing station to charge their cellphones and e-cigarettes.
The previous practice took away quality nursing time to carry out their duties without interruption. It's upon this premise I sourced for this unit and I am glad to see the huge difference. It has already made such a positive impact on the ward since its installation.
Thankyou for all of the support and input to bring this project in to fruition.
