With time and space being at a premium in busy hospital departments, every minute and millimetre counts.
Multi-purpose stretchers and trolleys
Within fast-track areas of the hospital such as Emergency Department (or Accident and Emergency depending on nomenclature), Day Surgery, Pain Clinics and Treatment Centres, opting for more compact or multi-purpose stretchers / trolleys, can free up additional capacity and in some cases, negate the need for more expensive bricks and mortar building extensions.
Advantages of a convertible chair
Other advantages that arise, over and above space saving, by using a convertible procedure chair are:
- Optional height adjuster, saving strain on the back
- Easier access with a low seat height for smaller / frail patients
- Ability to mobilise easier with a tilt-forward seat function
- Reduced storage space
- Improved positioning, comfort and pressure care with all the functions of a recliner chair (backrest recline, seat tilt, leg rest elevation, padded foot support)
- Reduced transfers needed between surgical trolley, recovery, bedside chair
