The reverse osmosis (RO) system in the Bright renal unit suddenly suffered a catastrophic failure. A replacement unit was proving very difficult to source and the renal team had no option but to arrange for their patients to be moved to other dialysis units to be treated.
m, VWT were able to mobilise immediately, installing and commissioning a temporary MDD registered RO unit to enable dialysis treatment to resume again with the renal unit. As a permanent solution, the VWT healthcare team presented various options to the Trust and subsequently, the DWA Modula S-XL Reverse Osmosis Unit was determined to be the best solution
The system was successfully installed and the pressure on clinical staff to reorganise patients and shift patterns was alleviated.
