Caring for plus size patients

For a person-centred approach to patient handling, mobility, pressure injury prevention and hygiene care, we developed the Bariatric Clinical Focus Guide. This guide highlights factors to consider and helps you identify equipment that may be required to support plus size patients with different levels of functional mobility who may also be at risk from complications of immobility and other obesity related issues.

Caring for plus size patients is a substantial and increasingly necessary challenge for today’s healthcare providers. This is especially so in the hospital environment, where the increasing population of larger patients places considerable pressure on available resources.

World prevalence of obesity

The increase in obesity is placing healthcare facilities under serious pressure, straining caregiving resources and driving up costs.

Tracey’s journey at the hospital

Plus size patients may worry about whether their shape or size may inconvenience staff and other patients, or lead to care delays or equipment failure. This can make a healthcare facility stay extra stressful for plus size people.
Our bariatric room solutions ensure your healthcare facilities are equipped for the increasing challenges of plus size patients and ready to deliver safe, cost efficient and dignified care.

Improve caregiver efficiency

Caring for plus size patients often requires the help of additional staff to ensure care tasks are completed but without appropriate equipment, this can place caregivers and patients at increased risk of injury.
