How do I use the SMARTSafe™ Property Bag?
When removing patient property prior to examination or treatment select the appropriate size of SMARTSafe™ Property Bag. The large bag can be used for heavy or bulky items such as coats, shoes or bag. The small bag should be used for smaller items such as jewellery, keys or medication.
Fill in the patients details and what property and or medication you are placing in the bag.
Once you have placed items in the bag, peel off the silver tamper evident seal strip and press it down against the back of the bag. The contents are now securely sealed. Tear off the wristband, place around the patients wrist and stick.
Peel off one of the removable barcodes from the bag and attach to your patient notes.
Why do I need SMARTSafe™?
SMARTSafe™ secures jewellery, clothing and shoes removed during examination and treatment and ensures that precious and important items are returned to the owners after the incident.
It protects staff from suspicion and ensures that the missing Timex watch does not become the missing Rolex.
How do I hand over at the Hospital?
Before handing over the patient and their property to the hospital, peel off one of the barcode stickers from the bag and attach to your patient notes. On arrival at the hospital the receiving staff member may be required to sign the bag to acknowledge it's receipt. They should then use one of the barcodes to attach to their patient report form. There are five peel off barcodes on the bag so one can be used on each report should the patient be transferred. If you wish to keep a record of the contents of the bag the front panel can be photocopied and attached to the patient report form.
Can I open the bag once its been sealed?
These durable property bags have a security seal and are made from tamper evident material to ensure that patient belongings are protected and remain together. However, once the belongings have been claimed, the owner should have no trouble retrieving their possessions.
