How Hospital Beds Can Reduce the Fall Epidemic
It’s been well-known that hospital beds provide much more value to a patient when they are used to create a safer environment. Whether it be in a long-term healthcare facility or even in a household, patient safety should always be emphasized.
Did you also know…
Long-term healthcare facilities continue to expose patients to various hazards, despite their commitment to providing quality care to the residents?
Isn’t that just a myth?
No. As a matter of fact, one of the most common hazards that these residents are exposed to is falls. The prevention of these falls require serious attention, and caregivers need to provide effective solutions to reduce the risk in this population.
While you may just think that fall could break or fracture a bone, the truth is, it can actually lead to much more detrimental effects that could put them at risk for a serious illness. For example, if a frail individual were to break a bone and end up recovering in the hospital, they could develop pneumonia during the recovery process which could threaten their life. This is why it’s extremely important that the right type of equipment is used within these facilities.
What about at home?
Patients at home require even more care – due to the fact that they are not supervised as well as within a hospital setting – and should be well-equipped with a longer term care bed, such as the Hill Rom Resident Bed. The engineers at Hill Rom developed this bed to provide a safe environment for any patient that lies on it. Furthermore, with safety rails that prevent them from falling out, and other features (like bed-raising capabilities), there won’t be a pressing safety concerns.
The Hill Rom Resident Long Term Care Bed is also beneficial for patients that have experienced multiple falls. Besides the significant physical trauma that a fall can cause, don’t forget that there’s a psychological aspect to it as well. More than 50% of falls that occur in care facilities come from a bed. This can lead to complications such as hip injuries, fractures, immobility, weakness, functional disability, and even depression. The serious health risks aren’t to be taken lightly, which is why the folks at Hill Rom have developed their products with the finest materials and with safety in mind.
The fear of falling can take an emotional toll on an individual. With this anxiety, patients are then exposed to an increased risk of subsequent falls due to overanalyzing their every move. In addition to the serious health risks that falls have on a person, it’s also a significant financial hit to the healthcare delivery systems. The cost of treating fall injuries isn’t cheap. And, the last thing that you’ll want to see is your loved one in constant pain, or even worse, put them at risk for debilitating diseases. Enough is enough, if you a caregiver providing for a patient, consider recommending a hospital bed to ensure that they are kept in a safe environment where they can thrive and not have to worry about injuring themselves further by a fall.
