Haigh has invested its technology into the Design & Innovation Centre (D&IC) which is the creation of specialist provider of healthcare alarm and communication solutions, Static Systems Group.
The D&IC is a multi-bed bay and a live example of the ProCure22 repeatable room design. This four-bed bay replicates one of the Government-led designs aiming to reduce costs, improve efficiency and patient outcomes through a standard and repeatable design.
The en-suite bathroom features the compact Haigh Quattro macerator which disposes of pulp products at the point of care. Critically the macerator is twice as quiet as other macerators and is quieter than the average night-time hospital noise.
Not only does the bay show visitors how a busy ward would function but it also serves to enhance training and showcase innovation, design and new concepts. It has attracted architects, healthcare planners, nursing and medical professional bodies as well as being the location for a ‘champion’s day’ for PSCPs and IHEEM events.
There has been immense support from industry leaders to endorse the facility. Static Systems envisage this will help bring the industry together and drive continuous improvement in accordance with NHS building guidance and standards.
