In the past, non-standard, inaccurate, and inconsistent measurement tools often resulted in measurement errors, and the measurement process was cumbersome, time-consuming, and laborious. Many nursing staff It will take the form of estimation, but there will be errors in estimation.
In response to this situation, nurses in the department invented a medical metering device. The main body includes a standard measuring cup and an electronic scale. The electronic scale has added water content percentage entry, which can quickly measure liquid volume and solid water content. The device has now been approved for national utility model patents.

Surgery patients have difficulty moving in the early postoperative period. In response, nurses invented a surgical drawstring to assist patients in getting in and out of bed. However, this kind of drawstring is rough and unsightly, and the length cannot be adjusted. The patient is already weak and weak after the operation, and there are many inconveniences in the use process.
After repeated trials, nurses have developed a new type of wake-up aid traction system, which can adjust the length and direction of the drawstring according to the patient’s height and weight, and is convenient to store, which helps the patient’s postoperative recovery. The device has now been approved for national utility model patents.
