Gynaecology examinations must be as comfortable, dignified and as accurate as possible – and that’s exactly what patients at Tauranga Hospital can now expect thanks to new equipment installed by Cubro.
The hospital’s busy gynaecology department sees over 40 women a day between three different exam rooms. Two of those rooms now feature a Divia Mixte examination table which is designed to accommodate the needs of both patients and medical staff. Registered Nurse Kim Vermeulen says the department’s previous examination beds weren’t wide or stable enough.
“The stirrups would slip down and move around all the time, you just couldn’t tighten them enough to hold things in place,” she recalls. “The ladies would put their legs on the stirrups and they would fall down and move around. It was just awful. “With the new tables, we have chosen to go with stirrups that you put under your knee. The proper fit of the stirrup actually holds their position well."
