|Medihosp, Phodzo Medical and PAC Rentals undertake training in the use of all equipment to be used in the professional or home care environment.
Special emphasis is placed on the management and prevention of pressure ulcers in primary and secondary care.
An initial risk assessment is carried out to assess the equipment needed for optimal treatment. All patients vulnerable to developing pressure ulcers should be placed on high specification foam mattresses as a minimum intervention. The pressure reducing qualities provide high levels of comfort which aids sleep, has pressure reducing qualities and is resistant fo infection.
Nurses and care givers are taught to make an accurate assessment of all pressure damage in terms of grading, size and type of tissue visible in order to determine the correct choice of dressing, product or technique.
|They observe the patients for signs of deterioration through the presence of odour and pain which may indicate infection.
Our guidelines encourage the use of modern dressings that allow for pain-free removal, reduce odour and leaking and promote healing.
Thorough training is given in the correct cleaning procedures needed to control infection and maintain a safe health-care environment.
Our health care training teams work in close collaboration with hospital and nursing home nurses, the patient and the patient's family and care givers.
Our training promotes prevention strategies in order to avoid further complications. Prevention of pressure ulcers is essential.
Training in the use of appropriate equipment and nursing techniques is a pre-requisite to the speedy recovery of the patient.
