Sleep Well Walk Safe Pack
NHS-approved falls prevention socks
This pack is designed to improve patient satisfaction and patient safety, addressing two key NHS issues. The ear plugs and eye masks ensure patients are able to get a good night's sleep, blocking out the noise and light of the routine workings of a ward at night. The addition of NHS-approved fall prevention socks reduces falls associated with inappropriate footwear on the wards and the bright colour can be used to alert staff to a patient at high risk of falling.
“Most patients like myself have issues with mobility and the grip or anti-slip socks come in handy in terms of preventing slips and falls within the hospital. The socks are very useful; they are useful in helping me deal with the cold, or even act as my slippers,” Patient.
