Gainsborough to launch Coriel bath
Gainsborough Specialist Bathing will be revealing its Coriel bariatric bath for high dependency bathers at the HEFMA National Leadership Forum.
Members of the Health Estates and Facilities Management Association (HEFMA) are responsible for the management of hospital operation, maintenance and support services within NHS Trusts. The association has multiple roles including the representation of FM with the NHS, policy implementation and promoting innovation with healthcare facilities.
Gainsborough’s new bariatric bath, aimed at the acute care sector, will be one of a range of healthcare products and services displayed at the national conference.
According to the company, the Coriel delivers lower costs and advanced ergonomics and expands its range to reach a wider patient profile.
Capable of holding bathers weighing up to 273kg who require recumbent bathing, the bath’s hi-lo functionality allows carers to operate at safe working heights, essential in bariatric care.
Additionally, the Coriel has hoist access that allows easy sling transfers so postural support is ensured throughout the bathing cycle. Infection control and, hence, CQC hygiene targets, can be met through in-built cleaning technology and multiple sensory options provide greater bather stimulus.
Peter Eckhardt, Gainsborough Healthcare Group CEO, commented: “Not only does our new Coriel bath excel within acute and bariatric care, it also pioneers in terms of value and performance. It encompasses our 30 years of renowned specialism so utmost reliability is assured, yet it delivers the lowest price point and running costs for an equivalent product.”
The HEFMA National Leadership Forum will take place from 10th-11th May in De Vere Cotswold Water Park Hotel in Gloucestershire.
Peter added: “The Coriel is a streamlined solution that still delivers care and hygiene of the highest order. Add to this our holistic support, NHS Procurement personnel seeking the most cost-effective solution now have a clear choice – the Coriel from Gainsborough Specialist Bathing.”
