About this deal
By a strange quirk of fate, in about 1982 John Steele at the Antique Collectors’ Club asked me to have a look at a manuscript about jugs he had received for possible publication. If nurses are concerned about patient’s water intake, such as if the red lid is still attached by the late afternoon, there are escalation processes to alert senior colleague for further action.
Simple measures: improving hydration in patients (DBTH)
News of other interesting unmarked jugs and particularly the discovery of any marked examples of these designs would be very welcome.
In response to these comments, a working party was set up involving all levels of the ward team to identify a way of improving hydration. Nursing staff at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) are set to implement a number of innovative measures to help patients stay hydrated – a major challenge for health professionals. Feedback from relatives has been positive and, in 2009, we won the Nursing Times Award for team of the year.

Patients given a red jug and mug received a patient information leaflet; families were informed of the scheme.The Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool and Waterlow pressure ulcer score were used to identify people who needed a red jug and mug as no hydration assessment tool was available. Dehydration — a condition which occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions – can be the underlying cause of many common conditions which can complicate a hospital stay.
