On the 25th of October LifeVac Europe was informed of another life saved, this time in a care home in Tipton.
LifeVac was deployed in an Exemplar Healthcare care home, when a resident started to choke during meal time.
A resident with Spina Bifida who relies on an electric wheelchair started to choked during her dinner. Basic life support was carried out by nurses which failed. The resident became unconscious when one of the nurses went and grabbed LifeVac. With one application the LifeVac dislodged the food bolus saving the residents life.
Matthew Banagan from LifeVac Europe commented “This is great news! Exemplar Healthcare is one of our oldest customers and to know we have saved another life within their group is fantastic. This once again shows why LifeVac is now in over 3000 care and nursing homes across the UK, why LifeVac is the safest option and so well known in the care sector. We have had some amazing meetings these past 3 weeks and are looking forward to welcoming 3 more of the largest care providers in the UK to the LifeVac family very soon. We have built our reputation in the care sector through great customer service, saving lives, passionate distributors and we treat every customer as a partner.
Nearly every customer we have in the care sector is through word of mouth, you cannot buy your way into the care sector, you rely on your reputation you built and the service you provide.”
