We recently read about an incident at a British hospital, which was forced to evacuate a building due to fire. Sadly, in the report we read, patients and visitors complained about the lack of organisation and how long it took to safely evacuate the building.
The NHS is already under immense pressure and healthcare professionals work extremely hard to ensure they consistently provide the very best care for their patients. Therefore, evacuation drills can seem low on their priority list. If you are in change of creating evacuation plans at your hospital, we are confident that Ruth Lee has products to help you train effectively.
We are committed to helping our customers to create the most realistic training. We have a range of health care manikins which are perfect for emergency evacuation drills including baby, toddler and youth sized dummies, general patient handling manikins, and our plus-sized bariatric manikins weighing in at 90, 180 and 260kgs (after all, heavier patients might require even greater levels of assistance in an emergency)!
We can also provide you with equipment to create very realistic ‘safe’ fires using silk flames, smoke machines and soundboxes – your staff will find it hard to believe there isn’t really a fire.
These can be placed in wards, canteens, kitchens, waiting rooms, reception areas, offices…the only limit is your imagination! It’s been proven by countless customers of ours that creating a more ‘realistic’ scene using these products adds real urgency to the training and therefore you get a much better idea of how effective your own evacuation plan is.
Check out the video below showing the fire simulation products used in a hospital setting – we think you’ll agree that they create a talking point at your training – and a long time afterwards!
