Emergency Stretchers & Chairs

In an emergency, transporting disabled or ill patients can be the most time-consuming part of an evacuation. It is important for workplaces to have a variety of devices available at all times in order to easily transport patients to a safe zone. It is necessary under the Disability Discrimination Act for provision to be made for entrance into and exit from buildings for everyone, including the elderly as well as pregnant women. Take a look at the different range of equipment available for this purpose.

Choosing Evac Chairs And Emergency Stretchers

To move patients safely and quickly down stairs in the event of an emergency, evacuation chairs are ideal. Wheelchairs and stretchers are often too awkward or large to be transported down stairs. Those forms of equipment can also be dangerous when moved down stairs, as there is a risk of the patient falling or the handler dropping the chair or stretcher. A stretcher may not be appropriate as someone with respiratory issues may need to be sitting rather than laying down. An emergency evacuation chair is specially designed for use when transporting a patient down stairs, and it reduces the risk of injury.

For moving people to an evacuation chair a patient transfer sheet can be used. If there are sufficient people available to help patients up to 159kg can be moved by utilising the ten handles.

The 300H Evac Chair and 500H Evac Chair provide a quick and safe method to move a patient down stairs. The chairs are designed for single person operation and to carry large loads. Both chairs include two large front wheels and two small back wheels for ease of use on stairs, as well as patient restraints to ensure that the person is secure during operation of the chair. A hand held rail at the top of the device includes non-slip coating for maximum comfort and control for the user.

The chairs are compact and can be folded flat for easy storage. This enables the chairs to be stored at multiple locations throughout the facility, thereby making them easily accessible in the event of an emergency. Each chair is supplied with wall-mount hooks, photoluminescent signage, a dust cover, and a user guide to allow nurses and potential users to have a full understanding of the device in the event of an emergency.

The Emergency Transit Chair provides another two-wheel or four-wheel solution for transporting patients in an emergency. This chair is lightweight and portable and can be folded flat for easy storage. The seat is made with a fire-retardant, anti-bacterial, removable PVC cover for patient hygiene and to ensure effective infection control practices. The chair is sturdy and can reliably carry large loads.

Other devices on offer for the moving of casualties include scoop stretchers which are often used to transport those with spinal injuries, and have a central access gap to allow x-ray without moving the patient.

Other items are available to prevent further injury in the case of an accident. Head immobilisers, for instance, keep the head and neck still in transit, and can be used in conjunction with spinal immobilisation boards.
