Anaesthetist Dr Sarah Preissler-Hunt, made 72 theatre caps for her team.
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.
