Details: We have installed ceiling lifts for each patient bed on the 9th floor and 14th floor of the Cardinal Carter Wing. These lifts are used by staff for various daily activities pertaining to inpatient care such as transferring and repositioning patients and limb lifting assistance.

These new ceiling lifts charge any time they are not in use, unlike the previous lifts that had to be returned to a docking station. This feature ensures the lift is always ready for use in times of need.
