New beds at Strathmore Hospice

Nursing staff at the Strathmore Hospice have take delivery of six state-of-the-art Spirit Ultra Low Acute Care Profiling beds for palliative care patients.

The beds, funded by Lippen Care, were trialled by the Clova Ward and Strathmore Hospice nursing staff. These first fully washable profiling beds address the needs of both patients and staff in the acute care environment. The most important benefit of these beds is the independence they give to patients.
