Hospitals Train Staff with iPods

From the BBC:

Two hospitals in Glasgow are using iPod music players to train staff.
The gadgets give new recruits an “audio induction” to the workplace, which is followed by a computer-based test.

Hopital managers at NHS Greater Glasgow say the iPod tours can be used to train staff on issues like superbugs, moving patients and coping with violence.

The iPods are being used in operating theatres at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and in the labour ward and neonatal unit at the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital.

They are also being introduced at the Western Infirmary’s Accident and Emergency department.
