Increased Nursing Efficiency
There is currently an estimated 7% shortfall in nursing staff, a statistic that will only get worse as many healthcare providers see a large percentage of their nurses retire in the next few years.
Intelligent product design will fulfil a key role in assisting healthcare providers to continue to offer appropriate levels of care to their patients against a background of inadequate numbers of caregivers.
Medstrom’s range of products address two key areas; safe, assisted patient mobilisation with a single caregiver and assisted turning. The latter facilitates easy manual handling by caregivers for personal care and position changes, easy changing of linens, inserting slide sheets and positional changes that can be carried out with one nurse.
