The innovative GalvinCare Safe-Connect shower system from Galvin Engineering is an anti-ligature shower solution ideal for mental health facilities.
The GalvinCare Safe-Connect shower system delivers multiple benefits to protected mental health environments, helping with patient care, comfort and safety.
Here are 5 reasons why:
Labour and maintenance savings
The GalvinCare Safe-Connect shower system replaces four fixtures – showerhead, shower diverter, handheld shower including wall connector and adaptor, and shower mixer. By integrating all the fixtures in a single unit, Safe-Connect ensures reduced labour during installation and minimal ongoing maintenance, resulting in savings.
The Safe-Connect shower system can simply replace the existing showerhead, eliminating any need for extra water lines, cutting walls or retiling.
Supports assisted showering
The AS/NZS 3662 approved GalvinCare mental health anti-ligature Safe-Connect shower system supports caregivers by simplifying assisted showering. When not in use, the handheld shower can be easily disconnected and removed from the room to prevent self-harm by patients.
Safer care environment
With anti-ligature and anti-vandal features, the GalvinCare Safe-Connect shower system minimises risk and offers a safe environment for both carers and patients.
Creating home-like environments
Studies have shown that patients with behavioural issues experience better healing outcomes if they are in a home-like environment. The chrome-plated design of GalvinCare Safe-Connect is similar in appearance to a typical residential showerhead, helping to create a familiar and comfortable environment for the patient.
