Safety Assurance for Specialist Seating and Patient Handling Assessments

As delivery in the primary care and the community begins to be restored closer to normal, pre-COVID levels, Direct Healthcare Group wish to continue to support our healthcare professionals navigate through these difficult times.

To ensure that you, your clients and the Direct Healthcare Group clinical assessment team are safe, the risks of conducting a Specialist Seating or Patient Handling equipment assessment have been considered.

While we can offer a virtual assessment of select products via our EthosGPS, we would also like to reassure you that we have implemented the following best practice guidelines for all face-to-face assessments:

  • Appropriate PPE – All teams have access to PPE and hand sanitiser. The team will wear PPE when working with all client groups.

  • Maintain Social Distance – Where possible, we will ensure to keep a safe distance from the client group.

  • Equipment Provision – As general best practice, all equipment is disinfected pre- and post-assessment.

  • Trial Equipment – Should trial equipment be required, the equipment will be delivered, contact free if possible, to the confirmed address and will be suitable disinfected for use.
