LifeVac helps save another life within Dovehaven Care Homes

The team at LifeVac Europe have the pleasure of sharing more great news! LifeVac has helped save another life within Dovehaven Care Homes!

 

This is the 7th reported life saved this month, where LifeVac has helped save a precious life in a choking emergency.

 

Dovehaven Care Homes delivered a group roll out of our LifeVac wall mounted kits in August of last year. The wonderful teams within the high standard care homes shared a few pictures with us.

The decision to safeguard the people they care for with the safest most effective airway clearance device – LifeVac, proved to be a great one within only a few days of the group roll out when LifeVac was put to the test to save a persons life.

Today we are proud to share news that LifeVac has helped save a second life within Dovehaven Care Homes. This took place at their Church View care home in Liverpool.

A male resident was enjoying his evening meal when he had an epileptic seizure and began to choke on his food. Staff responded very quickly delivering BLS protocol. Sadly BLS could not dislodge the obstruction. The team quickly deployed LifeVac and dislodged the food saving the gentleman’s life who was sitting in a chair.

"Very easy to assemble in an emergency - worked effectively and outcome very positive"

"Was not expecting the device to work as well as it did - exceeded expectations"

—Care Home Manager

"Purchasing the LifeVac system was a positive decision made to keep residents safe and give colleagues the confidence and support to deal with emergencies. Never did we think 2 lives would be saved in the space of 6 months. On both occasions feedback was extremely positive, with colleagues involved saying the LifeVac was easy to use and had an immediate result on choke prevention... we are very grateful that this piece of equipment is in all our dining areas giving us that added reassurance."

—Sam Jacob, Managing Director - Dovehaven Care Homes

"It's amazing to hear of all these lives being saved this month in such a short space of time. We work very closely with the care sector in the UK and the people we support. Working with Dovehaven Care Homes has been a pleasure. We are extremely grateful for the reputation we have built around the world and in the UK's healthcare sector. We are proud to be there in a choking emergency for the people that Dovehaven care for on a daily basis. The steps Dovehaven have taken to deploy LifeVac throughout their group demonstrates the high standard of care they deliver"

—Eric Banagan, Managing Director - LifeVac Europe
