NSW will have distribution access via Curtain Hardware (Oslo) a leading supplier of Hospital Bedscreen tracking in NSW.
New South Wales Health have shown strong interest in the EZR product after prototype testing was requested at the Newcastle Hospital, where 35 facility managers from throughout NSW and staff of the Newcastle Hospital, critiqued and tested the product over three days. This led to a protocol being published with, Curtain sizes and material’s, periodic curtain changing methods and track position’s being identified to provide the best OHS methods to complete the task. The EZR curtain change system was seen as a preferred product for the process.
NSW distributors/installers, will have training on installation and use in the near future to ensure all site installations are completed to the manufacturer’s standard.
