In a nutshell: A new ‘airline style’ film to give patients advice on how to stay safe in hospital has been created with the help of staff at Salford Royal. The film has been developed by Haelo in partnership with Guys’ and St Thomas’ Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The film aims to reduce avoidable complications such as blood clots, pressure ulcers or falls. Patients will also be provided with an information card with advice on looking after themselves during their hospital stay. The safety advice is being supported by Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, and the national Sign up to Safety campaign. The film can be easily incorporated into Trust websites so patients can watch it before they come into hospital. Hospitals with the Hospedia patient media system are also able to have the film uploaded free of charge to show patients once in hospital.
