Armadale Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) has received 12 new electronic transfer and trauma trolleys.

ED Nurse Unit Manager Jane Husain said that the new trolleys are a welcome upgrade of the previous 15-year-old machines.

“The trolleys are used daily, so machinery that works well really makes a difference to both staff and patients,” she said.

The trolleys are able to be lowered to the ground, which reduces falls-risk, and include comfort variations.

The department now has a total of 30 electronic trolleys and has been able to retire the ageing versions.
