Healthcare equipment

Healthcare equipment and products used in the home allow people to be cared for in familiar surroundings. Whilst these items can ease discomfort and improve healthcare outcomes, it is important to be aware that – in the event of a fire – they may increase the spread and intensity of the flames.

If you care for someone who needs specialist healthcare equipment, make sure that you always follow the manufacturer’s safety advice.

Dynamic airflow pressure relieving mattresses and overlays

These items are used to prevent and treat pressure sores and ulcers, which can be caused by extended periods of immobility. The mattress is filled with air by a pump, which adjusts pressure according to the patient’s needs.

When punctured by a heat source, such as a match, the escaping airflow can cause a fire to spread rapidly. The emergency battery back-up may continue to pump air, which can then cause the fire to burn longer.

Incontinence products

Incontinence pads and pants help people live at home with more dignity. However, these products are often supplied in large quantities and they can be bulky and difficult to store.

Further guidance
