Ratings and Reviews
Works for non-urgent issues
The app is a good tool for non urgent issues such as non urgent handovers, non urgent prescriptions, small jobs etc.
Unfortunately when it comes to real sick, unwell patients, I find it quite frustrating as the nurses tend to message the doctors and believe that the responsibility is passed over straight away.
Also, many people don’t use it correctly and only send message like: please call this number, thanks, without introducing themselves, giving a minimal SBAR etc, making it impossible, especially when on call, to prioritise.
Another issue is that many people started having problems with their personal phones once using medic bleep such as batteries issues, overheating etc and no one is taking responsibility for this unfortunately.
So overall a great secured way of communicating between us for non urgent things, but not properly working for on calls and really unwell patients.
And the overheating problem is a serious one as someone should be held responsible if I am made to use my personal device at work and then something happens to it due to using medicbleep.
Simple and secure -must have for any healthcare worker!
Truly a no brainer for any healthcare worker!
As a junior doctor I have for long struggled with the inefficient and often unreliable bleep system that tells me nothing of who is calling, why they’re calling as well as from where. Medic Bleep instead allows me to securely send a message across in an SBAR format and even escalate patients to my seniors if the patient is unwell. It is now easier to prioritise jobs, handover to the next team and with full NHS information governance, patient confidentiality is protected.
Easy to use and truly making my job easier, I hope that more hospitals adopt this and we stop communicating like we are in the 1960s!
Secure and simple to use!
I'm a pharmacist in a hospital setting and it normally gets pretty frustrating trying to get through switchboard or paging a doctor or the clinician in charge for a TTO or a drug prescription error, as it of course does for the clinician. This just makes that so much easier. I don't have to wait around the phone and they can respond in their time when they aren't busy on a ward round or in teaching or in theatre. The only problem right now is that only a couple of people are using this in my hospital. Can see them all using it very soon!
