Dignity Pegs/clips for hospital curtains
I am keen to try and launch the use of Dignity Pegs within Trust where I work.
Prior to approaching the Trust I would like to know if anyone else has experience of using them in an acute hospital setting. If so, I'd like to know the following;
- How long ago were they introduced and are they still used?
- Were all staff receptive to using and respected the patient's dignity when the peg was in place?
- Did you face any problems with launching them, i.e. infection control, patient safety issues?
- How did/do patient's feel about the pegs?
- What company did you purchase the pegs from?
Thank you in anticipation of any responses.
