The new Stonehaven renal unit is designed to provide vital facilities to the community and surrounding areas.
Freeman Hospital approached Ocura looking for new recliners for their chemotherapy day unit. The previous chairs at the unit were not fit for purpose, they were too low and did not recline easily, making it difficult for staff to assist patients who weren’t independent or who suddenly became unwell whilst in the chair. Ashleigh Hughes, Senior Sister told us shrinking floor space is an issue in the day unit, therefore the chairs needed to not only be comfortable for patients and easy for nurses to move and assist patients in line with moving and handling guidelines, the new recliners needed to be space efficient.
During the process of finding the perfect recliner, other suppliers and recliners were considered but didn’t meet the exact needs of the unit. Our Toronto was the perfect fit due to the built in table option, allowing the unit to reduce additional furniture for space and ease of cleaning. Additionally the built in USB ports were a vital feature for patients who spend a lot of time on their devices whilst undergoing treatment. Lastly, fast access to the Trendelenburg position meant staff could quickly assist patients experiencing vasovagual episodes.
“Staff report the recliners are easy and efficient to manœuvre, staff particularly like the fact they can move the chair to a nearby area with a patient seated if they become unwell, giving the patient privacy to recover”
Staff report the recliners are easy and efficient to manœuvre, staff particularly like the fact they can move the chair to a nearby area with a patient seated if they become unwell, giving the patient privacy to recover. Patients report they feel comfortable seated in the recliners for long periods of time.
