During his post graduate year as a Registered Nurse in Emergency, Glen Riverstone encountered the all too common sharps injury from glass ampoules. “I remember asking other staff who said it is just part of the job. I researched this further to discover it was one of the leading causes of sharps injuries in the hospital. I thought a safety device could solve the problem and be a great business opportunity.” Fast forward and the SnapIT Amouple Opener was invented, winning the People’s Choice Award on the ABC New inventors in 2007. It is now sold in over 15 countries.
In a bid to market the Snapit, Glen started an online venture which has developed into eNurse Pty Ltd. Always looking at what nurses needed, he expanded his range to include Clinical Reference Cards, Equipment, Accessories and shoes. From here Glen wanted to make comfortable, hard-wearing scrubs in many colours and different lengths to suit all nurses. He spent months testing his scrubs on nurses to find the perfect fit. His elitecare Classic range was born, and this is still eNurse’s signature line.
