Frequently Asked Questions
About the McMonty
What size do I need to order?
The McMonty comes in two sizes, referred to as ‘standard’ and ‘narrow’. When measuring, please be sure to measure the mattress width, not the bed frame width.
StandardThe ‘standard’ is suitable for beds >1000mm in width.
NarrowThe ‘narrow’ is suitable for beds between 800mm-1000mm in width.
How to Measure:
How Do I discard the McMonty?
The PVC component is recyclable if disinfected first and vinyl tabs/velcro are cut or torn off.
How much of a gap is allowable between the bed and the plastic or the backboard of the hood?
Minimise gaps as much as possible.
Pushing the back of the bed against the backboard of The McMonty should be common practice. Ensure the bottom of the clear hood is below bed level and neatly laid over the legs of the patient.
The system is designed such that it will not have an airtight seal and will operate as planned with small gaps between the bed and the transparent hood.
Is there a particular solution that needs to be used on the frame for cleaning?
