‘Amazing year’ for hospital showers
Finding ways to be more compliant, save time, and money, isn’t easy in healthcare, but, says Dupal UK, this is exactly what the company has helped 30 NHS Trusts do in the UK over the past year – through the implementation of its ‘L8 Shower’ scheme.
The company said: “The Trusts concerned have been able to reduce the time spent on their quarterly shower planned preventative maintenance by up to 70% — increasing their compliance and simplifying the audit process by having both the shower head and hose colour coded, which ensures that the units are regularly changed.
“Infection control teams are extremely happy with the L8 Shower too. With no dirt traps, low inventory, one sole material throughout with no internal components, and proven antibacterial properties built in, it’s clear that this shower head is exactly what hospitals have been crying out for.
“As one hospital estates manager said: ‘We save so much time in comparison with the cleaning we used to do. The scheme is so practical, has been well thought out, and is designed to make our job easier. For once the cost was not too high, and we were thankfully able to say yes.’”
