Faces of Qlicksmart: Dr Neville Henry and Rob Geddes

This month we’ve gone back to our roots and have been reflecting on who Qlicksmart is, where we’ve been, and what drives our future. In our latest video series, “The Faces of Qlicksmart,” we hope to share with you and the stories which shaped us and continue to inspire us. Qlicksmart began as an idea that "there had to be a better way" for healthcare workers to stay safe, and 20 years later we are still dedicated to care about those who care for everyone else. 

In the first episode of the series, Dr Neville Henry and Rob Geddes reflect on the invention history of the BladeFLASK and the importance of innovation in the medical safety field.

Silence Isn’t Safe. Speaking Up Is.

No matter their position or speciality, most medical and nursing professionals have had some experience in hesitating with speaking up when they see a safety risk. Even when the medical professional is fully aware of the potential hazard to the patient, staying silent can be seen as a “safe” option. In a large-scale study, 50% of nurses described situations where they should have spoken up, yet only 10% of the time did they voice their concerns.

What Is Speaking Up?
Speaking up is defined as “the raising of concerns by health care professionals for the benefit of patient safety and care quality upon recognising or becoming aware of the risky or deficient actions of others within health care teams in a hospital environment.”
