Waymayka Dignity Cover
The Dignity Cover has been designed to keep service user’s dignity intact.
It is to be used when the patient is being moved using the hoist method.
As the hoist lifts the service user, it is inevitable that their legs separate, leaving them exposed in an undignified manner.
The Dignity Cover can be used wherever hoisting is required.
This cover has been designed as an accessory to be attached to the hoist sling, covering the person’s modesty, which can easily be removed in case of an emergency.
- Non-friction material
- Water resistant
- Easy wipe
- Washable on a clinical cycle
- Each cover has an identity label and an easy storage bag is supplied
One Dignity Cover is recommended to be used per service user, complying with Health & Hygiene Regulations and to avoid cross contamination.
Check out these comments from Clare Copleston left on the Dignity Champions forum:
"A first of its kind! The Dignity cover has been designed to reduce exposure and to keep a persons modesty in tact when being raised with a hoist. I myself have had to be hoisted, and i wish this cover had been around when i needed it!"
Jayne Connery, Founder of the CCTV Care Campaign for the Vulnerable 100% advocates the Dignity Cover and urges all service users to consider using this product as part of their daily care routine when residents / patients are having to use a hoist. We believe dignity matters - at all times.
TIP: Various CQC officers have been spoken to about the Dignity Cover, a hoist accessory that is designed to preserve and protect the modesty of a vulnerable service user and person's living with dementia for individual use when the hoist is needed to be used within the moving and handling procedure. They have informed us that this product promotes best practice and will help improve inspection ratings as the provider has gone that extra mile.
