This month Mary Doyle Lifecare installed a Guldmann Wall Rail Hoist system. Mary Doyle is one of Hawkes Bays’ most comprehensive villages offering a full range of living and care options. Being apart of the Arvida Group Mary Doyle Lifecare focuses strongly on the well-being of residents while at the same time, aiming to remove the institutional feel of aged care. We spoke with Lisa, Care Manager and Registered Nurse about her experience installing the Guldmann Hoist system.
“Just the freedom of not having a bulky floor lifter in this resident’s room will be amazing”
“Guldmann Wall Rail is an economical room covering option that can be installed directly on all kinds of walls (no installation in the ceiling required). Installation is simple with very limited disruption. In fact, the team was in and out of the resident’s room in under an hour and the gentleman whose room we were working in popped in for a chat. He was able to be shown what his new equipment could do while the system was installed.”
When speaking with Lisa about how she envisages the wall rail system will support her team, she commented:
“Right there ready to go” and there’s no bar which gets in the way like there is with a floor lifter with the lifting equipment mounted out of the way with the wall rail system, the floor space is uncluttered making it safer and easier to get around.”
“Just the freedom of not having a bulky floor lifter in this resident’s room will be amazing”.
“Guldmann ceiling and wall rail systems provide much greater lifting height and greater freedom of movement for the person being lifted. And for the care staff at Mary Doyle, their new Guldmann system offers a reduction in stress, strain and injury as well bringing a new level of job satisfaction through ease of use.”
