You realize your loved one is moving a little slower lately. Getting out of bed feels more and more difficult and the current mattress isn’t easy to get in and out of. Your doctor mentions it might be time to consider a hospital bed at home.
The term hospital bed sounds sterile and uncomfortable. But, hospital beds have changed a lot over the years. Now, they are valuable tools that make giving and receiving care more pleasurable for both parties.
Hospital beds move via mechanical or electrical means. The new models are easy to use and have controls handy for bed dwelling patients.
-Hospital Beds Raise, Lower, Elevate, and Recline
There are differences in functionality among different bed models. But, most hospital beds are capable of a variety of movements. If your loved one has reduced balance and mobility, you want to ensure he has his feet firmly planted on the ground before he tries to stand. You can lower or raise a hospital bed so your loved one can stand safely. Hospital beds make the safe use of walkers and wheelchairs easier. Hospital beds Elevate and recline. For patients who have difficulty sleeping on flat mattresses, hospital beds can adjust to create a comfortable sleeping space. Sometimes patients need to elevate legs and feet for health reasons.
-Hospital Beds are Good for Caregivers
Hospital beds support good care technique. Caregivers can control the position of hospital beds. Caregivers are better positioned to offer support in back healthy positions. They are less likely to bend and stoop while providing assistance. Hospital beds make caring for your loved one’s personal needs easier.
Hospital beds often have rails that may give your loved one something to hold onto. Even if your loved one is non-ambulatory he may have upper body strength. He can use his arms to help with rolling and repositioning.
-Hospital Beds are Small and Mobile
While it may be an adjustment to move from a large bed to a hospital bed, often the reduced bed size makes maneuvering in the room safer. Wheelchairs and lifts require quite a bit of space to use and position correctly. Hospital beds may have wheels for easy movement. If your loved one is bed-bound, a hospital bed makes changing scenery easier.
-Hospital Beds are Accessorizable
Hospital beds rails offer great handholds. They also protect people from rolling off the sides. While you would never want to restrain someone in bed rails are great reminders for people who need help in and out of bed. Bed rails can be attached on the entire length of the bed, or half rails can attach near the top of the bed. These rails are great for getting in and out of bed and usually don’t get in the way of getting in and out of bed
-Better Positioning for Patients
When people are forced to spend extended periods of time in bed, the pressure that their body places on the bed causes a lot of heat that becomes trapped between the person’s clothing, bed and skin that will cause pressure sores or bed sores. These sores are extremely uncomfortable and difficult to manage. Hospital beds will often be recommended as an alternative so that they can reposition their body with ease to rotate themselves and displace the pressure throughout the body to alleviate soreness.
-Injury or Lack of Mobility
With certain injuries or surgeries, people will temporarily or permanently lose some of their mobility. Oftentimes, people will have their bedrooms on the second floor and climbing the stairs is too difficult to do post-surgery or with some injuries. Hospital Bed Rentals provide a convenient, temporary option to allow you to sleep on the ground level and make getting in and out of bed easier with less pain. People who are going through or recovering from abdominal surgeries, back surgeries or pregnancy often rent hospital beds as it allows them to sleep comfortably at an angle or position that is not painful for them and allows them to get in and out of bed on their own.
Hospital beds allow users to alter and adjust the bed to better position their head and feet. These changes allow for movement as well as a periodic change to the pressure points on the body, thereby improving the patient’s blood circulation while she/he is in bed.
Hospital Beds often become a necessity for people with conditions that require caregiver monitoring and attention or occasional restraint from falling. People who are at risk of falling, like those with dementia or cognitive impairment will many times require a hospital bed for the use of half rails to keep them in the bed. The half rails are adjustable to slide up and down out of the way, designed to keep people in bed or provide a stable and secure item to assist getting out of bed.
One of the most significant benefits of hospital beds is the ease of transferring. Hospital beds allow the caregiver to raise or lower the bed to a height that makes transferring the patient to a seated position, chair, wheelchair, or walker easier and reduce pain. Those with hip pain, lower back injury or pain, and some surgeries make moving and getting in and out of bed painful. The fully electric hospital bed and its ability to raise or lower makes getting in and out on one's own much easier.
Hospital beds are great tools that help keep your loved one comfortable at home. For people who are bed-bound or have trouble getting in and out of bed a hospital bed at home may be the solution. Hospital beds are sometimes covered by medicare. Medical professionals can help get your loved one a hospital bed at home.
Some people still regard hospital beds as clunky and sterile, but today’s hospital beds are valuable to home care tools.
