The scrub machine

Staff will get their scrubs directly from an automated machine located throughout the hospital. After they swipe their ID card, scrubs in the correct size will be dropped into an opening. They can return dirty scrubs to any of the machines in the hospital as well.

The pneumatic tube system

Behind the walls of the new Glen site runs an extensive network of tubes that will be used to deliver samples, medication, and emergency supplies from places like the hospital pharmacy directly to the central caregiver stations in the patient room pods.

MUHC prepping for big move

With more than 200 patients to transfer in less than a week, the MUHC held a simulated moving day at the Royal Victoria Hospital. This included a make-believe patient played by an intern pretending to make the trek to the new superhospital at the Glen Site.

The robot medication dispenser

The pharmacy department's new robotic system was designed to reduce dispensing errors to virtually zero. After it receives an order, it picks the medication, labels it and then double checks it for accuracy. It also affixes a bar code to the medication that nurses can scan directly in a patient's room before the medication is given, automatically updating the patient file.
