bariatric mortuary cooling unit
The Hospital Covercool™ bariatric (obese) mortuary cooling system simplifies the cooling of deceased bariatric bodies. Bariatric mortuary cooling is difficult but with with our bariatric mortuary cooling system hospitals can cool bariatric deceased on a bed (as in the picture), or on a trolley and in any location. If insufficiently cooled, UK Hospitals can sometimes receive unwanted press attention, see BBC news report March 2012. Covercool Bariatric is now installed in numerous hospitals & public mortuaries.
The Flexmort Covercool™ system allows bariatric mortuary cooling on a pm table, hospital bed etc using our specially designed mortuary cooling pads. The system improves patient dignity and reduces staff manual handling risks.
If not used for bariatric cooling, standard size bodies can alternatively be cooled and hospitals also use Covercool™ to keep bodies cool on the ward or in the Chapel of Rest allowing families to grieve with the body in an ambient environment while the system cools the deceased.
