Innova Care Concepts, the Yorkshire-based healthcare equipment specialists, have handed over 65 Interlude Newcare V3 beds to Spire Leeds Hospital. This marks the final stage of the hospital’s plan to replace their previous beds with a more manoeuvrable and versatile model.
Spire Leeds Hospital is one of Yorkshire’s largest private hospitals. They pride themselves on providing fast, personalised care and treatment across more than 30 medical specialties. So, it was important that any new beds supported them in providing high quality care for a wide range of patients.
Joe Hulbert, Sales Director at Innova, co-ordinated an in-depth consultation, trial, and training process before recommending the Interlude Newcare V3 as the hospital bed that was reliable, durable and adaptable enough to suit the individual needs of Spire Leeds Hospital’s patients.
Catherine Taylor, Nursing Services Manager, at Spire Leeds Hospital, said:
“Joe arranged a visit with the ward manager, ward sister and physiotherapists to discuss bed options best suited to our patients. A trial Interlude bed was arranged within 2 weeks and training was provided on the day to porters, housekeepers, nurses and physiotherapists.
Having trialled two other beds, the Innova bed met our requirements of easy manoeuvrability and suitability for our standard ward patients, bariatric patients, and younger patients. There were lots of options available - a narrow bed for ease in tight corridors, extension mattress platforms for our taller patients, bed controls built into the bed, and the handset with the option for a nurse-control-only unit at the end of the bed.
Delivery was scheduled without disrupting the service we provide to our patients. Joe returned to the hospital to provide additional training on the delivery day in order to educate nurses, physiotherapists, porters, housekeepers and ODPs. I have no hesitation in recommending Innova to other healthcare providers.”
The Interlude range of electric profiling beds are the result of 40 years of technological developments and design work. All beds have built-in auto-regression as standard, allowing the bed and the mattress to move as one and exert a minimal amount of friction on the patient’s body. There are also more than 10 additional accessories to choose from, including x-ray plates, IV poles and nightlights, which allow the beds to be customised for personalised patient care.
Innova are continuing their work with Spire Healthcare, performing full bed audits across all their UK hospitals.
