Private hospital takes delivery of 65 new specialist beds
Innova Care Concepts has handed over 65 Interlude Newcare V3 beds to Spire Leeds Hospital.
This marks the final stage of the hospital’s plan to replace its previous beds with a more-manoeuvrable and versatile model.
Joe Hulbert, sales director at Innova, co-ordinated an indepth consultation, trial, and training process before recommending the Interlude Newcare V3 as the hospital bed that was reliable, durable and adaptable enough to suit the individual needs of the hospital’s patients.
Catherine Taylor, nursing services manager at the hospital, said: “Joe arranged a visit with the ward manager, ward sister, and physiotherapists to discuss bed options best suited to our patients.
“A trial Interlude bed was arranged within two weeks and training was provided on the day to porters, housekeepers, nurses, and physiotherapists.
“Having trialled two other beds, the Innova met our requirements of easy manoeuvrability and suitability for our standard ward patients, bariatric patients, and younger patients.

“There were lots of options available - a narrow bed for ease in tight corridors; extension mattress platforms for our taller patients; bed controls built into the bed; and a handset with the option for a nurse-control-only unit at the end of the bed.
“Delivery was scheduled without disrupting the service we provide to our patients; and Joe returned to the hospital to provide additional training on the delivery day in order to educate nurses, physiotherapists, porters, housekeepers and ODPs.”

All beds have built-in auto regression as standard, allowing the bed and the mattress to move as one and exert a minimal amount of friction on the patient’s body.
There are also more than 10 additional accessories to choose from, including X-ray plates, IV poles and nightlights, which allow the beds to be customised for personalised patient care.
