Original Gap Statement
    A system that holds my assorted goodies in place would fill my gap!
In what way might I ...
  • Design a system to hold assorted goodies by the patient's bedside
  • Store belongings by the bedside for easy access
  • Have access to things used daily right near the bed
  • Keep things from falling on the floor from the bedside table
  • Have access to tools needed for use in the room (remotes, phones, computers, mp3 players, headphones, phone headset, etc.)
  • Cut down on time the caregiver needs to devote to helping the patient
  • Allow the tabletop to be used for food and bath needs still allowing access to belongings for the patient
  • Keep belongings organized, safe, and secure for patient without the need of a caregiver to provide access
  • Provide a safe compartment for things that could create problems, such as drinks or lotions
  • Allow for easy cleaning for hygienic hospital policy
  • Create a cabinet/system that is easily moved for use of the hospital bedside table
  • Create a cabinet/system that will not move or in other ways fail - secure positioning
  • Tabletop cabinet attaches swiftly to table, dresser, or shelving unit; if positioned on unit with wheels, wheels must lock
