In this study, a procedure cart (an equipment cart that has been specially designed to store all the equipment necessary for specific medical procedures) was evaluated on an internal medicine ward to determine if it would improve clinicians’ efficiency in preparing for central venous catheterization. The study examined the time and completeness of procedure preparation by residents with the cart compared to the standard procedure of collecting material from a supply room and transporting it to the patient room. The results from this study support the implementation of procedure carts within internal medicine units as a means to improve the efficiency of bedside procedures.
