Ontex field study in Germany shows digitalization of incontinence care counteracts staff shortages in nursing homes
AALST-EREMBODEGEM, Belgium, May 23, 2022-
Ontex (Euronext: ONTEX) (BSE:ONTEX), a leading international provider of personal care solutions, today unveiled the results of a study of its Orizon digital incontinence care solution in a German nursing home.
During February and March of 2022, a field study by Ontex at the Palmscher Garten nursing home in the town of Deizisau, Germany, confirmed similar results to that of their earlier pilot projects across Europe. When trialling Orizon on 10 residents at the German nursing home, the time caregivers spent on incontinence care reduced by a total of 3.2 hours a day, and 7 diapers were saved each day. The residents also got at least 8 hours of sleep per night because their diapers no longer required checking for saturation. In nursing homes checking residents through the night is a common routine that means many residents are unnecessarily woken and disturbed during their sleep.
