During a really good talk at Littlemore Hospital Oxford, I was asked if we had any queries from infection contol services about "calm down box". Now, for the life of me I could not remember one such queery in the trial or pilot, but I did wonder if people were coming across any such queeries and how they responded to the. The posters etc are all laminated, so that should not be an issue.

Any thoughts?

Hi Geoff,

During the trial we had a couple of questions about washing teddy bears- some wards decided to stick them in the washing machine after they had been used. Also, I know at least one ward didn't allow people to share headphones. I think that was it in terms of infection control.

Hope that helps!

Hi Karen,

Don't I recall seeing a huge cardboard box full of earphones? Didn't we buy really cheap (effectively) disposable ones?

Hi Len,

Yes, that's what we did. You can buy them in bulk from suppliers on Amazon for just over £1 each:
