Are you looking for a hospital bed for your home for a loved one? Hospital beds are a great way to increase independence while ensuring that your loved one stays safe. This blog will look at some of the benefits of owning a hospital bed, the features they include, and will also showcase some of our most popular hospital bed options.

The Benefits of Owning a Hospital Bed

There are many benefits to owning a hospital bed. From safety to compatibility, keep reading to learn more about some of these benefits!

Safety

One of the biggest benefits of owning a hospital bed is the increased safety for the user. While the patient is in bed the bed can be moved around on wheels with locking mechanisms. This means that you can transfer the patient to different rooms and rest easy that the bed will not move when the wheels are locked.

Another added safety that comes with hospital beds is the ability to easily adjust the patient’s position and the height of the bed. This makes transferring the patient to a wheelchair, or other transfer device, simple, easy, and safe!

Our hospital beds also include an added safety feature of optional full or half rails. This means that you can relax knowing that the user is not at risk of falling out of the bed during the day or night!

Compatibility

Hospital beds make a great addition to your home because they are compatible with other home health care devices. When a patient is in a hospital bed, it is easier to transfer them to a wheelchair, rollator, bed table, or other transfer devices. This is due to the fact that the bed’s position can easily be changed which means easier, and safer, transfers.

Caretakers

Another great benefit of owning a hospital bed is that it makes a caretaker or care givers job much easier. Not only are hospital beds easy to move, they are also easy to reposition for safe and simple patient transfers!

Adjustable

Hospital beds are extremely easy to adjust. Many hospital beds are available in a powered version that can be controlled with the touch of a button. This means that the user can adjust themselves and does not have to rely on a caregiver or caretaker to adjust the bed for them. This added freedom can help improve independence. Adjustable positioning allows the user to increase the backrest elevation to up to 90 degrees. The lower part of the bed can also be adjusted which can help increase comfort and circulation in the lower limbs.

Comfort

Hospital beds are very comfortable. At ADAPT Home Health Care, our hospital bed packages include upgraded therapeutic mattresses. These mattresses are pressure redistribution foam mattresses which means that they can help to prevent bed ulcers. Our hospital beds are also adjustable which means that the user can easily change the height that they would like their head or feet to be at and they can sit up with the push of a button. Not only is this great for comfort, but it also can help with swelling, circulation, acid reflux, respiration issues, and sleep apnea.

A couple of weeks ago we were searching online for some medical equipment for our home. We decided to try Gore I.D.A after reading the reviews. (even though there were other places we could have went to that are much closer to our home)We were not disappointed! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Always a great experience when I am dealing with the staff at Gore IDA Pharmacy. The representative at Adapt Medical is fantastic, had to get custom compression stockings & a walker and was treated extremely well with professionalism and dignity. Would definitely recommend for any home health care needs!!!

Outstanding service and such pleasant staff. We were referred here by a physiotherapist as my mother required a compression wrap for her legs. Although it was out of the way we decided to give it a try. Trisha was so helpful and knew exactly what we were looking for. Items ordered arrived in very short order and Trisha was always very accommodating with her time.
