How Hospital Beds Are Changing Today’s Homecare Setting
The expansion and development of hospital beds have come a long way in terms of technological advancement and versatility. In previous years, hospital beds were only utilized within a hospital setting or a long-term care facility.
Any homeowner can have their very own full electric hospital bed in their household, making it easier for them to care for a loved one. Now, before we dive into the depths of the benefits of owning a hospital bed, it’s important that these assistive devices are high in demand, therefore prices have been surging as of late.
If you were to purchase an Invacare full electric hospital bed for your home, expect to spend thousands of dollars from medical equipment manufacturers. However, don’t let these businesses fool you with their sales pitches. My advice to you is to find a hospital bed that matches the need of the individual that plans to use it. If they don’t need the extra features, find something that would better suit them. Also, remember…
Hospital beds not only benefit patients but also the caregiver.
Today’s models are designed to reduce the stress that a caregiver endures when transferring or repositioning the patient. For example, an Invacare electric hospital bed comes with a unique control system that allows the caregiver, or the patient, to adjust the head and end of the bed with the touch of a button. Additionally, when used in conjunction with a pressure relieving mattress, user will minimize the risk of pressure ulcers or sores from occurring on their extremities – which are extremely common in patients that are mobility limited.
The benefits that hospital beds bring
The designs of these high complexity electric beds were built to provide substantial assistance to both the caregiver and the patient. It’s also utilized to protect, support, and limit one’s activities to ensure a safe environment. The reason why these beds are so useful is that they can improve the overall health of users in regards to falls, injuries, and other subsequent caveats that a standard bed imposes. Now, many of these high complexity beds respond to the patient’s movement to provide a series of adjustments that conform to a therapeutic level. It has helped thousands of people that suffer from ailments and debilitating diseases find comfort and stability on their road to recovery.
Hospital beds however, can’t do it all
In order to provide full patient support, the caregiver must maintain a strict schedule of repositioning a patient at certain times. By doing so, it allows for a better distribution of pressure, which certain patients require. Now, this additional dedication that caregivers must provide has a drastic impact on the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. And, if left untreated, these sores can severely impact one’s health. By practicing risk control and keeping to a dedicated schedule, there will be a substantial reduction of skin conditions developing.
