Guldmann Intensive Care

Supportive efficiency on the intensive care ward.

Intensive Care

More time to care

Staff on intensive care wards are regularly confronted by busy, unpredictable work situations, which can increase the risk of undesirable events for the patient and of work-related injuries for the care staff.

In many cases, patients are physically dependent on assistance from the staff and may find it hard to follow instructions on account of their illness and ⁄ or medication. As a result, lifting and moving procedures on intensive care wards often demand additional assistance and take up much of the staff’s time and energy.

Installing a ceiling hoist system can help reduce the number of staff required for individual lifting procedures, while ensuring that lifts are performed quickly, efficiently and safely.

Intensive Care Intensive Care Intensive Care

Intensive care wards are reserved for patients suffering from serious illness, and these patients are generally largely immobile with little functional capacity. In addition, they have often been intubated or connected to a respirator and ⁄ or an IV line, as well as other monitoring and intervention equipment. What is more, they are often under anaesthetic or on other medication that might leave them frightened, confused or delirious.

A ceiling hoist installed in an intensive care ward can be used to help patients sit up on the edge of the bed or in a wheelchair — and is especially useful if such procedures have to be performed several times a day.

Changing position in this way can help patients breathe more easily, even if they can only remain sitting up for a short period.

A ceiling hoist also makes it easier to transfer patients from bed to couch where they can train their balance capabilities in a sitting position, or do other exercises and activities.

This helps reduce the risk of pressure ulcers, and using a hoist eliminates the need to adopt awkward positions for patient and carer alike.
