    Abstract

    A single programmed investigation bed has become a useful addition to a busy male medical ward. Patients had to wait only a short time before being admitted and their stay was shorter than it would have been before the bed was introduced. The use of the bed requires careful planning and the full co-operation of all medical and nursing staff.
