Nap pod installed at Poole hospital (UK) thanks to generous donation
Thanks to a generous donation by several British funds, health care workers of Poole hospital’s anesthetic department can now grab some much-needed rest: The hospital just received their brand new EnergyPod, and are now ready to battle fatigue at the workplace as part of the Royal College of Anaesthetists’ Fight Fatigue campaign.
“We understand the invaluable difference this will make in allowing the anesthetic team to take comfortable breaks when working long night shifts,” says Samantha Lowman, Senior Brand Executive at LV Life and Pensions to the Bournemouth Echo.

Nap pods are becoming the standard at British hospitals
The new EnergyPod at Poole hospital is far from the first nap pod installation at a UK hospital. Realizing the importance of well-rested workers, a large number of NHS hospitals have installed nap pods or sleep pods in one form or another.
The reason is far from coincidental: Drowsy health care personnel have serious consequences every day, including medicine and diagnostic errors, as well as doctors falling asleep behind the wheel on the way home from a night shift.
Nap pods provide a space-efficient solution allowing doctors and nurses to rest and recharge.
