McDonough, GA (PRWEB) November 05, 2012
Encompass’ Fall Prevention solutions, outlined in the new Fall Prevention Products catalog, offer essential components to support a facility’s program for identifying these patients, helping to prevent falls from occurring, and reducing the risk for injury.
Encompass’ Fall Prevention solutions include Falling Leaves™ patient gowns, coordinating throw blankets, unique brands of Patient Safety Footwear, Guardian™ protective garments, and the Safety Zone™ bedside fall mats. Each solution provides a variety of distinctive features supporting ease of use by medical professionals and the comfort of the patient.
The yellow Falling Leaves print gowns are generously sized to provide modesty and dignity for the patient, while serving as an easy-to-see visual indicator to medical professionals. At a distance or even at a glance, medical staff is able to more easily recognize those patients identified for risk. These gowns can also be coordinated with soft, comfortable throw blankets, available in red or yellow, for additional recognition and coverage.
Among the Patient Safety Footwear offering, the Safe-Steps™ Fall Risk Management Kits consist of essential components and tips needed to properly and easily identify patients at-risk for falls. Each kit is color-coordinated and all components, which include Confetti Treads™ footwear, stickers, magnets, and bracelets are available conveniently prepackaged or can be individually purchased.
The Safety Zone™ Bedside Fall Mat is an innovative solution to reduce patient trauma and injury, should a fall occur. The Mat’s thin profile, floor hugging perimeter, and impact absorbing composite core support both patient and staff safety.
“The new Fall Prevention Products Catalog features a variety of product solutions for patient identification, fall prevention and injury reduction that are all part of Encompass’ growing line to provide innovative, patient safety and comfort solutions,” said Joe Przepiorka, Vice President, Marketing–Acute Care, Encompass Group, LLC.
“Fall prevention programs and supporting products are at the forefront of safe and comfortable hospital care. Our product offerings provide a range of solutions and can easily be implemented through programs customized for any facility.”
