Abstract [en]

In November 2016 a brand new and highly technological hospital called New Karolinska

Solna opened in Stockholm. In connection with the planning of the hospital, new medical

devices were procured, including a new infusion system that is now in use. Previously, each

ward at the hospital had their own pumps and was responsible for updates and maintenance.

Now, the hospital will instead have a floating pump system, which means that the hospital will

own the pumps. The infusion pumps will be floating between the wards without being linked

to a specific ward or department. The updates that were previously done when the need arose

at the ward will now be a common process for the entire hospital. The aim of the project was

to develop new guidelines for how the update process should be done on New Karolinska

Solna's new infusion pump system.

Through interviews with key personnel during the procurement process, the medical

technicians department and caseworkers, new guidelines have been written, given the already

existing technical conditions.

During the course of the project it has been found that there are major shortcomings of

information and communication within the hospital. The guidelines presented in the result are

an important part to ensure that information related to the update comes to the caregivers at

New Karolinska Solna, thus simplifying and streamlining the update of the infusion pumps.
