Defibrillator Lease for a Nursing Home
Learn how this nursing home based in London decided to invest in an onsite defibrillator for their residents
This nursing home based in London decided to invest in an onsite defibrillator for their residents. In the UK, an estimated 60,000 people a year are dying due to a sudden cardiac arrest. With individuals over the age of 55 at a higher risk of suffering cardiac arrests, it seemed a no-brainer to give their residents peace of mind that if a sudden cardiac arrest was to occur, a defibrillator would be on site.
Having decided on using a London based defibrillator supplier, they decided to spread the cost of the defibrillator over a 3 year term and used WestWon as their chosen finance provider. A director of the nursing home had used WestWon to finance some furniture in the past for a different nursing home in a previous role.
If defibrillation through a defibrillator occurs within 1 minute of the victim collapsing, the victim’s survival rate increases to 90%!
The credit was approved within 24 hours and documents were sent to the supplier, who met with the customer to sign up the documents. Upon signature of the documents, the equipment was installed and the agreement activated within 48 hours.
All carers at the nursing home were surprised on how easy a defibrillator was to use and were given full training on the same day the defibrillator was installed.
Following the introduction to the supplier, WestWon have become their finance partner and we have since facilitated over 40 lease agreements for their customers.
