EVACUATION SOLUTIONS FOR HOSPITALS
ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE UNEXPECTED? ARE YOU CERTAIN THAT EVERY PERSON IN THE HOSPITAL CAN ESCAPE SAFELY? HAVE YOU CONSIDERED HOW THOSE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES CAN EVACUATE FROM THE HOSPITAL QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY? THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE STAYING IN THE HOSPITAL OR VISITING WILL NEED SOME ASSISTANCE IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY.
HIGH-QUALITY EVACUATION EQUIPMENT FOR HOSPITALS
Escape Mobility Company developed high-quality evacuation equipment especially for emergency situations and evacuations from hospitals or other healthcare institutions. In this way you can evacuate wheelchair users, highly pregnant people and bed-bound people quickly, safely and comfortably in the event of an emergency. In short: all persons with a permanent or temporary limitation.
By using evacuation equipment your hospital is prepared for any kind of evacuation.
The fire and rescue service is not responsible for evacuating people from your building!
Ensure that your general emergency evacuation plan (GEEP) and your personal emergency evacuation plan (PEEP) are up to date. Emergencies by definition are sudden events and the objective is to be prepared. Are you prepared to take that risk?
APPROPRIATE EVACUATIONS SOLUTIONS
With the help of Evacuation equipment, patients can be evacuated quickly, safely and comfortably, both horizontally and vertically. Evacuation chairs are more suitable for vertical evacuation and you can evacuate horizontally and vertically with the help of evacuation mattresses and evacuation sheets.
Evacuation chairs help to ensure the safety of mobility-restricted people during an emergency situation. People who would benefit from evacuation chairs are not just people in wheelchairs. Less able or perhaps people suffering from short-term injury all need to be catered for, should an emergency evacuation occur. The evacuation chairs of Escape Mobility Company provide extra comfort for this vulnerable target group. The chairs can be equipped with a double ergonomic backrest, comfort seat, armrests and footrest. Moreover, our evacuation chair is also available in an electrically powered version. It is easy to use with: just one touch of a button you are ready to evacuate. Evacuation chairs are suitable for all stairs, except spiral stairs and stairs steeper than 40 degrees. Evacuation is possible with one person, but our advice is always to evacuate with two people.
Evacuation mattresses are suitable for all types of stairs. An evacuation with a mattress must always be done by 2 operators. Our experience is that people prefer to be evacuated in seated position than in lying position, but in some cases the use of an evacuation chair is just not possible. Our evacuation mattresses are then a very suitable alternative for both horizontal and vertical evacuation.
Evacuation sheets are only used in healthcare environments, such as hospitals, elderly homes and care institutions. They are ideal for bedridden persons. The evacuation is done with the mattress of the hospital bed under which an evacuation sheet is attached. An evacuation sheet can be used both horizontally and vertically, on all types of stairs. An evacuation with a sheet is best done by 2 operators.
For HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL evacuation
In many cases it is impossible to evacuate a complete hospital. In addition to vertical evacuation solutions, Escape Mobility Company also offers solutions to evacuate horizontally. This means that patients are evacuated from fire compartment A to B on the same floor. Our evacuation solutions are compact and easy to store: often there is no room in a hospital to store complete beds to allow people to change compartments.
