Twinkle Carts (Standardized Pediatric Crash Carts) to Go-Live on Tuesday, November 27

Starting on Tuesday, November 27, the Twinkle Cart will become the standard pediatric crash cart at all WakeMed hospital and Emergency Department sites. Twinkle Carts will replace the current Broselow Carts at Apex, Brier Creek, Cary, Garner and North. Raleigh Twinkle Carts will remain in place, but will receive a physical upgrade in the weeks following the go-live to match the set-up of the new carts:

  • Carts will change from 6 drawer to a 7 drawer format.
  • Backboards will be elevated and changed out to red color.
  • Standard placemats will be added to the top of the cart.

Twinkle Carts at all sites will go-live with a new standardized contents list. These changes are the result of two years of thoughtful and extensive process improvement work conducted by a team of front-line staff – representing Children’s, Nursing, Pharmacy, Emergency Services, Respiratory, MPDC, Facilities and more – with leadership from the Kaizen Promotion Office. With questions related to crash cart contents and re-stocking processes, please contact your site’s Pharmacy manager.
