Combatting hospital equipment theft with the Axi2Go

As hospital budgets continue to be pressured and cuts are made, the effects of device and equipment theft become more significant

When emergency situations arise, medical equipment gets used and often there is no time to return it to where it should be or even make a note of where it is, therefore equipment can stray far from its original stored area.

Hospitals will normally need to purchase more equipment than required due to cases of misplacing and loss of high-cost equipment. As hospital budgets continue to be pressured and cuts are made, the effects of device and equipment theft become more significant.

The high cost of equipment theft

According to the Royal Free London NHS Trust, fraud in the NHS is thought to cost on average around £5.7 billion every year and takes away money which services should be spending on patient care, funding towards further medical professionals or treatments.

To reduce the negative impact of hospital crime on healthcare systems that are already being stretched both financially and physically, there are several ways to reduce theft.

Hospitals operate with a huge number of expensive medical equipment and associated assets which need to be monitored and tracked.

One way to reduce theft is to adopt technologies and devices which are designed to deter theft through opportunistic behaviour from staff, patients and hospital visitors.

 

 

 

 

 

How the Axi2Go can reduce your losses from theft

Transport chairs are a must have provision for patients and visitors with limited mobility.

The Axi2Go chair provides the ideal solution with many features suited to multi-user environments; the chairs can be pushed neatly together so they take up less storage space and help keep your reception area neat and tidy.

The vandalism and theft-proof transport chair with a unique nesting system:

  • Tracking
    GPS tracking devices can be fitted to the underside of the seat. This means you can round up each chair at the end of the day as well as being able to collect the chair if it has been taken off site and otherwise lost, therefore maximising your investment.
  • Built to last
    Maintenance-free, anti-leak tyres. Protective powder coating so the chair can be used indoors and outdoors.
  • Comfort seating
    Preformed seat, backrest and armrest delivering a good comfortable sitting position. For greater comfort, there is also an optional 3D-woven seat and backrest cover.
  • Varied colour range
    With a wide variety of colours to choose from, you can choose a colour that matches your brand/style.

 

The Axi2Go is the ultimate transport solution. A space-saving, modular, comfortable, and high-quality chair.
