What is Equipi?


 

Equipi started with an idea and a dream to improve the conditions of healthcare workers who endure physical and emotional injury daily just doing their jobs.  The nursing profession more that any other, endures more physical injuries according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  Not only do nurses incur physical injury, but some suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) from the constant stressful conditions which can be prevented with awareness, reform and small efficient steps to help those who save lives daily.  Equipi's goal is to bring efficiency and process solutions for nursing and the healthcare professions using Design Thinking and Research.
