Part of the Gainsborough Healthcare Group, Gainsborough Specialist Bathing is a proven specialist in the care sector and will be showcasing its ultra-efficient, infection-controlling Gentona and Sentes baths at Health Plus Care.
Health Plus Care, Care Home Live feature and stand D60, 27-28 June 2018, ExCeL, London.
The Care Home Live feature will demonstrate the latest assistive products in a ‘real life’ simulated care environment. As Gainsborough continues to be the proven pioneer in assisted bathing, its hi-lo Gentona bath is the perfect fit for this prestigious interactive experience. Live demonstrations of the Gentona will be performed by product specialists who will explain its unique BioCote antimicrobial protection and ultra-energy-efficient design.
The Gentona delivers utmost safety, dignity and well-being for semi-ambulant bathers, especially those living with dementia. Offering a vital solution to help meet CQC hygiene targets, it includes a world’s first in specialist bathing infection control through the inclusion of BioCote. This silver-ion technology is integrated during the manufacturing process so it cannot be wiped or worn away. Far exceeding the effectiveness of liquid disinfectants, the Gentona provides 99.9% protection, 24/7, against an array of microbes including Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic resistant CPE, CRO, CRE, VRE and MRSA.
Many care homes, acute wards and healthcare groups are recognising the significant benefit BioCote presents as Luke Torkington, Procurement Buyer, Four Seasons Health Care comments: “BioCote is vital for our care homes’ infection control process. With the increased threat from superbugs, the inclusion of BioCote technology delivers our carers and residents a significant advantage. No other premium supplier can deliver such a robust infection control solution.”
In addition to the reduced risk of illness and cross infection, the Gentona also provides pioneering cost savings. Through advanced design and technology, water and utility consumption are reduced whilst faster bathing cycle times are facilitated. Luke adds: “As well as incorporating BioCote, the Gentona bath particularly appeals to us as its advanced design features reduce energy overheads and help us optimize staff resources. We were impressed to learn that the Gentona can potentially save up to 25% on all running costs when compared to equivalent baths. Due to the bath being designed with the bather and carer in mind, it allows our clinical teams to continually enhance care quality and maintain best practice.”
The Gentona will be showcased alongside the reclining Sentes bath from Gainsborough Specialist Bathing. It is a proven solution that provides advanced care for bathers with more complex needs. Its smooth reclining action provides additional postural support for bathers with stability challenges whilst still facilitating deep immersion. Sensory options are available for a spa experience and hoist access is straightforward if required.It too is cost effective, reliable and ergonomic and provides an assured choice for healthcare providers seeking operational efficiency and high-quality bathing care.
