We keep a record of Frequently Asked Questions here at Care-Med and share them with customers to make their jobs Easier, Quicker and Safer.
FAQ #1 “Why do you call your chairs “platforms for care”?
- Because our Sertain™ chairs are more than just a chair – they are designed to cross the boundary between a bed and a chair, with features like layflat, hi-lo and removable sides. A Sertain™ is a platform for standing transfers, lateral transfers, therapy, rest and mobilisation.
FAQ #2 “Is it safe to wheel the Sertain™ chair around the hospital and even outside?
Yes of course; the chair is designed for use as a portering device and has large 150mm tracking and braking wheels. Outside is fine too as long as the surface is smooth (no grass, gravel or big kerbs please). The ability to move even critically ill patients out of the ward environment, and into the cafe or out into the fresh air, has made a huge difference to many lives since the early 90’s!
We’ve got a lot more FAQs to share with you…look out for #3 and #4 next week.
Well done to the fundraising team at Brendoncare who raised over £29,000 to support their amazing clubs which perform amazing work to combat loneliness amongst older people in Hampshire and the surrounding areas. We were glad to be able to support this campaign which was part of The Big Give.
The difference that early mobilisation can make, to all stakeholders involved in Acute Care is well documented:
- Patients benefit from shortened recovery times, and increased functional strength upon discharge
- Hospitals and staff benefit from freeing up bedspace for other patients
- Costs are reduced with efficiency gains
