McDonough, GA (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
Encompass’ new Patient Safety Footwear line Shower-Steps by Albahealth provides added protection on wet surfaces to help prevent falls which could lead to injury. The slip-resistant flexible sole and mesh upper feature an open weave design, which allows water to flow through while bathing and provides maximum traction. Designed for use on wet surfaces, air passes through to speed drying.
“Falls and injuries often occur in the bath,” said Jennifer Woody, Albahealth Marketing Manager. “Shower-Steps help provide an extra measure of safety. At Encompass, we’ve built our business on the belief that better care starts with safety and comfort.”
Hospital falls are a serious patient safety issue, and an effective fall prevention program is a critical component of any patient safety strategy. Industry stakeholders such as National Quality Forum (NQF), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and The Joint Commission have addressed both the need for preventative measures as well as the potential impact to hospital reimbursement for poor performance.
Encompass’ Fall Prevention solutions are growing constantly. The company offers a full range of patient safety footwear, risk indicator patient gowns and throw blankets, protective garments, bedside fall mats and more in a new catalog showcasing the entire line of patient safety and comfort solutions.
