Edward Hain Evacuation Film
A video showing the fire evacuation procedure at Edward Hain hospital in St Ives was shown to a meeting of local stakeholders. The Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust met with local people, including councillors, MP Derek Thomas and the hospital’s League of Friends to show them the film as part of an update about the hospital’s closure to in-patients since February and the plans for its future. The evacuation procedure in the past has included the use of a drag mat for bed-bound patients because it is impossible to get the beds through the ward doorways. The CPFT, who took over the provision of community services in April, say this method is unacceptable and unsafe for patients and staff.
The building is owned by NHS Property Services, who also attended the meeting. They have worked with CPFT to resolve the problems and have identified £900,000 of remedial works that will be needed to re-configure the building and install a sprinkler system.
