Northland District Health Board theatre staff are switching to personalised theatre caps as part of a patient safety initiative. 

Anaesthetist Sarah Preissler-Hunt said that the redesigned hats will make their work easier.

“It means being able to give a task to a person directly rather than calling “can someone please…”, she says.

A keen sewer, Sarah volunteered to take on the project and started by drafting the pattern. She then spent around 30 hours sewing hats for her team.
