The need for continuous care is increasing year on year due to the UK’s ageing population. This has seen the care home sector put under immense scrutiny with regards to the standard of equipment and care offered to clients. Moving, handling and bathing equipment are essential in a day to day care package in order to provide a safe environment for both the client and the carer.
The service and repair of this equipment has never been more significant, especially since the increase in unannounced care home inspections by the Care Quality Commission.
The effects of neglecting such an essential maintenance program could be detrimental to a care home, should a patient or carer become injured as a result of using ill-serviced equipment.
However, the safety of staff and clients is not the only benefit to complying with maintenance regulations. Care Homes will also benefit from increased equipment efficiency and reduced costs via less reactive service call outs.
Prism Medical UK offer extensive service and repair packages, and operates the UK’s largest team of DBS checked engineers, complying with all moving, handling and bathing regulations such as LOLER, WRAS and BS EN ISO 10535.
