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.
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.
Contact Medihood on (03) 8413 6600 or email@example.com to discuss any replacement/spare parts.
Like anything reusable, there will come a time where the hood needs to be replaced.
It is essential that the hood is inspected prior-to and after patient use.
When inspecting, make note of any areas of wear and discard the hood if there are any holes or tears as this will compromise the integrity of the product.
Hospitals currently opting to reuse The McMonty hoods are finding they are able to use a single hood through multiple wash cycles.
Yes, additional hoods are available through medihood (firstname.lastname@example.org) at a cost of $258.00 ex GST per hood.
It is recommended to have at least one spare on hand to be able to account for cleaning/disinfection time.
