The Guldmann 'H' track ceiling hoist system from HLS Healthcare was installed for all 12 patient beds incorporated into the new ICU at Nepean Hospital.
The white profile of Guldmann's latest model, GH3 ceiling hoist system allows the track and hoist to integrate seamlessly without negatively impacting the aesthetics of the room.
ICU NUM Veronica McCartan expressed her satisfaction at the performance of the systems and is confident that the GH3 will offer significant benefits in patient handling within the unit.
Each GH3 hoist installed in the ICU features inbuilt weigh scales to enable weighing of patients as part of the transfer process. One hoist has a 350kg lifting capacity to assist with handling bariatric patients.
