NHSGGC's patient hoists and standing aids are currently serviced every six months by Drive DeVilbiss (Sidhill). When you go to use the hoist or standing aid, as well as your normal pre-use checks, if it does not have an up to date service sticker attached to it, please report this to your local estates department.
NHSGGC's patient hoists, standing aids and slings are inspected as per the Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER), that is, every six months. Currently the inspections are undertaken by Zurich. When you go to use the hoist, standing aid or sling, as well as your pre-use checks, if it does not have an up to date inspection sticker attached to it, please take the equipment out of use and report this to your local estates department.
NHSGGC's patient beds are serviced annually. This programme started in March 2018 and is currently undertaken by Drive DeVilbiss (Sidhill). When the bed has been serviced a label will be placed on the bottom of the bed frame towards the foot end left wheel. Please check the service schedule below for when your beds will be serviced. After these dates, if you come across a bed without a service label please contact estates through FM First, quoting the bed serial number and current location.
