As part of their on-going partnership with Acorns Children’s Hospice, staff at Joerns Healthcare recently paid a visit to the Three Counties Hospice in Worcester to donate an Oxford Presence patient hoist and a selection of slings for use at the facility. Mark Cable, National Sales Manager for Joerns Healthcare (Acute division) presented the equipment to staff on Friday, 7th June 2013 alongside a product training session for the care providers.

The Oxford Presence, part of Oxford’s Professional series, is a heavy duty patient hoist with a safe working load of 227kg / 35st. With an excellent lift range and reach, the Presence satisfies a wide range of patient handling requirements. To find out more about the Oxford Presence and our range of patient slings, click here.

Ellie Griffiths, Corporate and Partnerships Manager at Acorns comments “This equipment will prove invaluable to the hospice and without doubt, contribute to a safer environment for both the care staff and children here. On behalf of Acorns, I’d like to thank Joerns Healthcare for this most recent donation”.
