Safe surface temperature specialists, Contour, have provided a comprehensive, multi-phase LST package to a significant Scottish care organisation.
Due to tighter regulations around patient safety and wellbeing Meallmore were looking for a product that would be good looking, well designed and a long lasting solution. They were also mindful of the view to having a hygienic solution to help combat the rise of superbugs in the care environments.
Meallmore Care is one of the foremost providers of innovative and ethical health and social care, with premises located through Scotland and boasting the ISO 9001 International Accreditation for quality assurance each year for the past 8 years.
Contour’s range of innovative and aesthetic LST radiator guards are backed-up by a unique service package, including free site surveys, split deliveries, exclusive patented features, a dedicated technical support department and a supply & fit service.
Despite the tight regulations laid down by the Health and Safety Executive, concern is continuing to grow around resident safety in care homes amid reports that some homes are endangering the safety of service users by not adhering to strict guidelines around safe surface temperature radiators and pipework.
The recommended surface temperature for radiators and pipework in care homes is 43°C. Above this the risk of burns and scalds increases, and residents are put in danger of potentially life-changing injuries if they are exposed to hot surfaces. The result of these injuries, however, is not only catastrophic for the resident; it can also be damaging both financially and legally for care home managers.
