The Friends at Broomfield Hospital recently awarded £4,200 to fund the ‘patient bedwarmers’.

Pictured here are hospital staff with ladies from the Friends who visited the department to see how this equipment is helping patients ….

Staff from the department kindly explained how the sealed ‘mattress pads’ sit on top of a mattress (between the mattress and the patient) and the pads are plugged in and heated to the required temperature to help raise and maintain a patients’ body temperature….particularly critical for patients who have experienced burns … as where the skin is lost it is difficult to maintain body temperature.
