Training places available for w/b 20 July - HoverMatt & HoverJack

All patient facing staff - new round of training sessions for the HoverMatt and HoverJack!

The HoverMatt and HoverJack is the gold standard and 1st choice equipment for flat lifting fallen patients up from the floor in inpatient settings, and managing lateral transfers in both inpatient and community settings. In most cases this replaces the need for a hoist when assisting fallen patients on wards or facilitating bed/mattress changes in the community. It is much more comfortable and dignified than hoisting, and has raised the standard of care through patient manual handling. 

To raise further awareness and build confidence and competency with this equipment, the Patient Manual Handling and Falls Teams are delivering a series of training sessions. Please click on the 'Book Now! image to view the available dates and be sure to book onto a session!
