Reply To: Sling purchase – pool or individual areas for special slings

Angela Greetham

Hi Glenda,
Our DHB CNM’s purchases slings according to their areas needs. WE have a selection of loop only slings ranging from 200kg SWL to 272kg. The bariatric slings hold up to 500kg. Although each area has its own slings we do share when required. Our surgical area and ICU department own some amputee slings. We also have designated bariatric rooms on each level which have a ceiling hoist which can lift up to 500kgs in Whakatane and 360kg in Tauranga. Hope this helps,
