Fitting a ceiling hoist in an operating theatre makes it easier for staff to do their job and improves patient safety. However, the presence of other ceiling-mounted equipment is one reason why so few operating theatres in Denmark have ceiling-mounted hoists.
The Regional Hospital in Horsens is now installing ceiling-mounted hoists in all the operating theatres in its new surgical department.
