Staff test and trial beds and bean bags for The new HOSPITAL building

Redevelopment FF&E Manager, Naomi Gerhard, testing special bean bags

Asssiting our Furniture, Fittings and Equipment (FF&E) team, staff were invited to help select special beds and bean bags for the future clinical services building.

With patient health and comfort in mind, distributors showcased the special electronic controls, ease of manual handling and enhanced comforts so staff could make an informed decision.

To continue planning for the fitout of the mental health units, special bean bags set to enhance the care and comforts of mental health users were trialled. This piece of furniture provides a calming and relaxing sensation and is a tool that can help people feel safe and secure. 

The FF&E team are now tasked with reviewing the feedback and ordering a variety of beds, including bariatric, mental health, birthing and standard.
