HOW TO PLAN FOR A BARIATRIC PATIENT ADMISSION
If you handle patients on a daily basis, your job is only going to become more demanding as bariatric patient admissions become more frequent. A 2006 study by WorkCover NSW found that bariatric patient admissions at Manning-Base Hospital alone jumped from 20 to 194 in four years.
You need to ask if you are fully prepared to obtain and use appropriate equipment.
Here are five questions to ask when preparing for a bariatric patient admission:
1. Do you have up-to-date policies and procedures?
Lack of preparation and product knowledge may lead to delays in getting suitable equipment and can potentially put the bariatric unit out of action.
2. Do you have accurate patient weight information?
Keep in mind that the maximum weight capacity of hospital equipment is typically 230kg.
3. Do you have enough space to accommodate the equipment?
The larger size of bariatric equipment requires more planning around logistics and storage. It is helpful to chart the path of the equipment through your facility to ensure it can move through doorways and lifts or make sure there is an alternative path.
4. Do you have access to suitable equipment on short notice?
Some suppliers can be reluctant to provide equipment on a last-minute verbal purchase order. This can be one additional obstacle you do not need when trying to obtain equipment in a timely manner.
5. Are your staff adequately trained and educated?
Staff should be trained in how to properly use the equipment. Because staff don’t often use this type of equipment it is good to look into whether your supplier can provide added services such as hands-on training, videos and manuals.
