Got the bottle
23 January 2013
Lewisham Hospital NHS Trust has improved handling efficiency and reduced the risk of accidents to both patients and porters when moving gas cylinders by investing in an electricoperated gas bottle mover from MasterMover
Prior to investing in the gas bottle mover gas bottles were moved by a porter from the central stores to their destination using either a trolley or were carried manually.
The Gas Bottle Mover is purpose designed and built to address the problem of transferring gas bottles safely and quickly around a hospital.
The machine supplied is capable of moving up to 16 bottles in a single journey, enabling the porters to make more efficient ward deliveries and reducing manual handling.
