Our business is your business
A study published by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health shows that among all health care workers, ambulance personnel were most infected by the coronavirus, with an infection rate of 1,83 percent. To this day, the fear of emergency services collapsing in the future possible pandemic remains. Employees are worried not only for their health and safety but for the safety of their families to which they must return after every shift.
When infection appears among employees it affects the healthcare services of the entire population resulting in delays and interruptions in providing care and treatments. Keeping employees safe and protected should be a top priority for the future.
During Covid-19 pandemic, we took our role in the seriously, and we are convinced that the usage of single-patient isolation units, which are proven to be the most helpful tool in infectious transport, lead to fewer infections among the healthcare workers.
Safe patient transport is very important when hospitals get overcrowded. One of many examples is Germany which offered its neighbouring countries to send the patients to German hospitals that had spare capacity. Another example is Oslo, where the hospitals were struggling with full intensive care capacities. Ill covid patients on respirators have been transported in an intensive care ambulance between the hospitals in Helse Sør-Øst.
With 27 EpiShuttles, Norway is prepared for the future pandemic – to help the healthcare workers to perform their daily jobs without getting infected.
Our business growth and financial foothold is allowing the development of life-saving medical equipment and is a very good indicator that EpiShuttle is performing its mission – keeping everyone safe from infection.
EpiGuard has a lot to offer, and we have come along way, but we are going further!
