Coronavirus (COVID-19) National lockdown: stay at home Alerts and recalls for drugs and medical devices Patient hoists and slings - ensure you follow manufacturer's instructions for use and that you carry out risk assessments (All) MHRA continues to receive adverse incident reports of patient hoists and slings used in hospitals and the community that have resulted in serious patient injury or fatalities. (MDA/2007/031) Action deadlines for the Safety Alert Broadcast System (SABS) Deadline (action underway): 29 June 2007, Deadline (action complete): 31 August 2007 Falls due to the poor compatibility of slings and hoists, inappropriate laundering of slings and inadequate maintenance of patient hoists used in hospitals and the community. Hoists and slings are used to transfer patients and this is usually achieved very successfully. However, the MHRA continues to receive adverse incident reports involving patient hoists and slings used in hospitals and the community. Some of these incidents have resulted in serious patient injury or fatalities. Whilst being hoisted a patient fell to the floor through an aperture in the patient sling. This aperture resulted from an incompatibility of the sling and the spreader bar. Also, the sling was an inappropriate size for the patient’s weight and body size Carers have received electric shocks from contact with damaged leads and connectors when recharging hoist batteries. This damage should have been detected on visual inspection before use or during maintenance Slings being laundered/washed by methods not in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions have produced weaknesses in the slings and their mounting systems, leading to subsequent failure in use Single-use slings were laundered with reusable slings. Single-use slings are not manufactured to be laundered and reused. Patients being lifted in these slings could be put at increased risk A LOLER inspection revealed a hoist electric actuator had exceeded its manufacturer’s cyclic design life. The hoist was kept in service following the inspection without the actuator being changed, which subsequently failed in use. This Alert replaces earlier notices SN9829 (July 1998) and SN1999 (29) (September 1999), which are now withdrawn. All hoists and slings are used and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions All sling and hoist combinations are compatible and appropriate for the patient and that risk assessments are repeated if the equipment combination or the patient’s condition changes All hoists and slings are visually inspected before use and are removed from service if defects are found All slings are cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions All hoists and slings are inspected by a competent person every six months as outlined in the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) All those involved in the supply, maintenance or use of these devices, in particular nurses, care staff, laundry staff and maintenance staff or contractors.

Ludlow Primary School to get road safety scheme this year after long campaign A SAFETY scheme is promised for outside a Ludlow Primary School after a prolonged campaign by the school, parents and local councillors. The long awaited safety scheme outside Ludlow Primary School will go ahead before the summer. Installation of a raised table outside the school comes after a campaign by school governors and local Shropshire Councillor Tracey Huffer. There is no date for the work yet but it is expected to begin immediately after Cadent, the gas infrastructure provider, vacates the site around Easter. That means the safety scheme, which includes new signage and the raised table, will be in place before the summer. “It has taken us a few years to get to this point,” said Mrs Huffer. “Plans have needed to be revised to ensure they are just right and the money needed to be found in an overstretched highways budget. “We need this road safety scheme. Traffic speeds along Sandpits Road at times are too high. Although there will not be a formal 20mph limit, the safety scheme will ensure that most drivers will drive at low speeds. “The plan was to complete the work around about now but gas and water engineering works are well behind schedule. The contractors had drilled test holes in the area when planning the work but somehow missed the tilestone layers that underly East Hamlet. These are a hard as slate and have broken drill bits. “It is likely to be a couple of months before the utility roadworks on Sandpits Road are completed. Only then can the road safety scheme be put in place.” Fellow Shropshire councillor Andy Boddington, who represents Ludlow North, says that the scheme outside the Primary School is welcome but should be followed by others. He says that something needs to be done outside Ludlow School and that speed bumps are not enough. “We need other school safety schemes,” he said.https://www.ludlowadvertiser.co.uk/news/19105080.ludlow-primary-school-get-road-safety-scheme-year-long-campaign/
