Why Hospital Bed Features Are Advantageous For the Home Setting
There are numerous factors to consider when purchasing a therapeutic bed for your loved one.
What company do you want to purchase from? Do you want an adjustable bed or a hospital bed? What functions do you want? How much do you want to pay?
The list goes on and on.
However, it can be simplified by narrowing down your options and determining what works best with his or her lifestyle.
Here are some tips that will help you in your shopping quest for a new bed.
Adjustable beds and hospital beds are similar in that the head and foot section can be adjusted. That’s basically all that they share in common (unless you want to consider a ‘place to sleep’ another similarity too…).
When it comes to hospital beds, note that they are designed for patients that suffer form medical issues that are debilitating and that spend a majority of their time in the bed. With functionalities such as raising and lowering the head and foot of the bed, it also helps prevent any injuries to the caregiver with its ease of use.
The Hill Rom CareAssist ES Bed System brings ‘the hospital home to you’. Well, not entirely. But you get what I mean. It’s equipped with large industrial wheels that allow for easy transportation. In addition to this, the Hill Rom CareAssist ES Bed System also comes with safety rails that prevent the patient from rolling out and causing harm to themselves. It is made with the finest quality materials and designed for industrial use within a home. Normally, you would expect these hospital beds to be made from plastic.
That’s completely wrong.
As a matter of fact, Hill Rom, one of the leading medical equipment manufacturers uses only high-grade materials that are fit for both home care and hospital setting. This means that you aren’t just obtaining a bed that’s fit for a professional environment, but it can also be used within the confines of your home. How convenient is that?
The Hill Rom CareAssist ES Bed System is also easy to clean and maintain. You don’t need to be a medical professional to know that a safe environment is a clean environment – literally. And, if your loved one is susceptible to contracting illnesses from airborne particles or even their own bodily fluid that may leak on their bed, know that you can easily reach in between the sides and clean out anything. This is vital factor when it comes to hospital beds. And, if the patient requires constant cleaning, you’ll find that it’s much more convenient to take care of then a standard bed.
For preventative measure, each Hill Rom CareAssist ES Bed System comes with a manual that you can use to assist in the process of assembly or disassembly. It also shows you how to use your hospital bed and maximize its versatility.
