Designing out the bugs

This month's Metropolis magazine, a publication that focuses on architecture and design, has a treat for hospital epidemiologists--the results of a design competition in the UK for hospital products that improve infection control. The title of the competition was "Design Bugs Out." The magazine's website has a photo gallery of the newly designed products. Check out the wheelchair that doubles as a beside commode--always good to think about multitasking! I also like the IV tubing that tells you when it needs to be changed.
