We have seen an increase in interest in our bariatric care solutions here are Caremed Alrick.
Some of this can be attributed to the pandemic – increases in unemployment means people are having to eat more cheap, high calorie processed food. Add local and national lockdowns which have limited people’s exercise and comfort eating due to job/money/family worries and the impact is considerable. And this has a knock on effect on health services across the country.
Work Health and Safety guidelines, NSW
The Work Health and Safety government guidance for NSW states, “Patients with bariatric needs may delay presenting to hospitals until their medical condition is urgent. This may be due to perceived discrimination or resentment by hospital workers, or because of embarrassment about their size, impaired mobility and limited transportation options.”*
Our furniture caters for the OHS requirements for bariatric care, and we have made sure our furniture helps to maintain the patient’s dignity and safety.
