Part of the Gainsborough Healthcare Group, Gainsborough Specialist Bathing is a proven specialist in the care sector and will be showcasing its ultra-efficient, infection-controlling Gentona and specialist bariatric Coriel baths at Healthcare Estates.
Healthcare Estates, stand E57, 9-10 October 2018, Manchester Central.
The Gentona delivers utmost safety, dignity and well-being for semi-ambulant bathers through powered variable height and a bather transfer seat. Offering a vital solution to help meet CQC hygiene targets, it includes a world’s first in specialist bathing infection control through the inclusion of BioCote. This silver-ion technology is integrated during the manufacturing process so it cannot be wiped or worn away. The Gentona provides 99.9% protection, 24/7, against an array of microbes including Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic resistant CPE, CRO, CRE, VRE and MRSA.
Luke Torkington, Four Seasons Health Care, comments: “BioCote is vital for our care homes’ infection control process. No other premium supplier can deliver such a robust infection control solution.” The Gentona also provides pioneering water and utility savings as Luke adds: “We were impressed to learn that the Gentona can potentially save up to 25% on all running costs when compared to equivalent baths.”
Alongside the Gentona, the Coriel is a substantial solution with a vast capacity ideal for bathers weighing up to 273kg (43 stone) who require recumbent bathing. Through precision engineering and highly durable components its hi-lo functionality allows carers to consistently operate at safe working heights – absolutely essential in bariatric care.
