We know that as a Care Provider or Carer there are often challenges when finding, purchasing, operating and maintaining a suitable pressure relieving support surface.
For a Care Provider this often involves balancing the budget to manage upfront costs as well as ongoing life-cycle costs. Meeting ad-hoc demands to deliver uninterrupted patient care is also a priority, as well as ensuring patients are on the right surface to suit their individual needs.
For the Carer, dealing with avoidable interruptions caused by inadequate equipment means time is taken away from face to face care time with the Cared For. Inadequate or incorrect support surfaces to meet individual care can also lead to increased nursing time spent on highly demanding repositioning regimes. Added to this, Carers do not always have the necessary training on how to operate the support surface to deliver the very best levels of care.
For the Cared For these challenges, that the Care Provider and Carer face, can negatively affect the level of care they receive. In reality this can mean an anxious time for the Cared For and, in the worst cases, result in debilitating pain and suffering caused by pressure ulcers.
At Select Medical we believe a pressure care company should be about more than just providing support surfaces – there’s a much bigger role for us to play. Our aim is to help you maximise the care you give by going that extra mile to make your life easier, which in turn will benefit all involved. So, how do we do this?
