“We are acutely aware of the risks of pressure sores and have made the prevention of them a priority in our care management,” said Rita C. Mabli, President and CEO of United Hebrew of New Rochelle.

New Rochelle, NY (PRWEB) May 29, 2014

Partnering with Cair Medical, a seating and mobility company, and the collaborating efforts of the Rehabilitation and Finance departments at United Hebrew, qualifying residents were identified and custom-measured for a tilt in space wheelchair. A Tilt-in-Space wheelchair provides the necessary change in position for residents who cannot independently shift their body weight or change position. These residents would be at a higher risk for skin breakdown and their sitting tolerance is compromised. Tilt in space wheelchairs will also help improve ability to swallow and eat and increase air flow.

“We are acutely aware of the risks of pressure sores and have made the prevention of them a priority in our care management,” said Rita C. Mabli, President and CEO of United Hebrew of New Rochelle, “which underscores our daily efforts and moral obligation to bring the best standards and quality care to our patients and residents.”
