Enhancing Work Processes as New Book on Workplace Learning Featuring KWSH Unveiled
KWSH is honoured to have been featured in a new book published by the Singapore Institute of Technology! Titled The Learning Enterprise, the book features KWSH as one of the first four local organisations in workplace learning and lean transformation, and illustrates how our nursing team successfully improved the management of patients’ bathing process during the morning shift. This was achieved through the team’s application of lean tools, which cut down the bathing time of patients and allowed nurses to work on other value-added tasks.
The new book was unveiled at the MOU signing ceremony where KWSH was appointed as a SkillsFuture Queen Bee on 13 November
During the event where the book was unveiled, KWSH also showcased some of our key innovation milestones which have aided us greatly in raising productivity and the quality of care for our clients. One of these is the KroniKare Wound Scanner, which can provide automated assessments of our clients’ chronic wounds. With this in place, we have implemented a new wound care system that can capture wound information for our digital management of the clients’ wound progress. More recently, we have tested and adopted the use of automated guided vehicles to deliver meals to our residents, freeing up our care staff to concentrate fully on tending to our residents in the wards.
