The toilet, still in the prototype stage, has been installed on the new 23-bay Navenby Ward at Lincoln County Hospital.
An extra-wide bed, which can also cope with a patient weighing 70 stone, and featuring hoists and pulleys, has also been bought by Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust for the £2.8m ward.
Sylvia Knight, chief nurse at Lincoln County Hospital, said: “The design of the new Navenby Ward provides top-class accommodation for our patients and will enable our staff to provide the highest quality of care.”
