Addenbrooke’s is first to introduce Vistr Headwall®

Addenbrooke’s is first to introduce Vistr Headwall®.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) has appointed Static Systems Group to upgrade the nurse call and bedhead services trunking in Ward C5 at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, the site’s dedicated Dialysis Unit.

Ward C5 is set to become the first in the country to benefit from Vistr Headwall®, Static Systems’ latest bedhead trunking solution which has been designed specifically to help create a therapeutic healthcare environment that is conducive to patient well-being and a speedy recovery.

The 33-bed ward provides care for patients with general medical and kidney conditions. As well as four single occupancy rooms, it has six dedicated dialysis beds. The ward’s existing nurse call and bedhead services trunking had been in place for some 25 years and no longer met the Trust’s requirements, so the decision was made to undertake a complete system upgrade. The Trust was already familiar with Static Systems’ solutions as they are used throughout many of the hospital’s other wards. As such, they were confident that Static Systems could meet their requirements to deliver market-leading solutions.

The Trust initially considered installing Static Systems’ Modus Vertical solution as it is the preferred trunking solution on site. However, Static Systems and the appointed interior designer on the project, Grosvenor Interiors, who worked closely together from the outset of the project, put forward an alternative solution: Vistr Headwall.

Vistr Headwall features a decorative graphic fascia that truly enhances a patient’s surroundings by incorporating light and colour. Manufactured to an uncompromising standard using flame retardant materials, the graphic can be specified to complement the ward or building décor where the unit will be located. Grosvenor Interiors will supply the graphics for the headwall units on Ward C5.

The Trust recognised that Vistr Headwall would better meet their requirements, namely creating a more visually appealing and relaxing environment for the ward’s dialysis patients. The unit incorporates all the essential patient bedhead services and allows for easy access to these services for clinical staff, but also keeps them out of direct sight of patients and visitors.

Static Systems’ Codemlon™ loop wired addressable nurse call system was identified as the best solution for the upgrade. Codemlon is a tried and tested product with an enviable track record in the healthcare sector, serving more acute hospital wards in the UK than any other nurse call system.

The Ward C5 upgrade project was completed in November 2019.
