Patient Recliner

Organisation : NHS Lothian, SHDU/58, Western General Hospital
Grant Amount : £ 770

We require funding to purchase a new patient recliner to provide easier access and more support for sitting patients out of bed with less upper body strength/stability.  This benefits older patients who find it more comfortable to recline and also benefit from their feet being elevated for chronic health issues. It would benefit carers also because it can be used for them to sleep in the room with the patient when required which helps in caring for patients with Dementia/Anxiety/Confusion/learning/sensory difficulties.
