Staff on intensive care wards are regularly confronted by urgent, unpredictable work situations, with high risk of undesirable outcomes for the patient and of work-related injuries for the care staff.
A ceiling-mounted hoist system is often the ideal and most effective way to lift and move patients in such situations. Mounting all the lifting equipment at ceiling height frees up floor space improving access for critical care. A hoist also saves on time and resources, because everything needed to carry out a lift or a move is always close to hand, fewer staff members are required and stress for the patient minimised. For staff, there is a huge reduction in strain, over-exertion and injuries – and this means less sick leave and greater work satisfaction for carers or nurses.
Guldmann lifting modules are designed for heavy lifting with capacities of 175–500 kg. They are effortless to operate and provide exceptional freedom of movement. They also reduce the number of staff required for individual lifting procedures, while ensuring that lifts are performed quickly, efficiently and safely.
