Hospital beds and safety in the home

By: brookepens

Choosing hospital beds for a personís own private residential home can be difficult at times. The upheaval in the home can be distressing for both patient and relatives. The patient may not be too keen on having a hospital bed grace their home, it may seem intrusive to their recovery, especially if they have already spent a long time in hospital.

It is essential that hospital beds are in a position that allows a patient to see a television and preferably near a bathroom, away from draughts or a window.

Make sure if other people are in the house they are able to hear a person calling out to them. If possible, arrange a telephone to be placed within reach of the bed. Look out for trailing wires on the floor. All hospital beds should have their wheels in the locked position unless it is being moved for cleaning purposes. Make sure the bedís locking facility is working.

In the evening use a small lamp or a night light to prevent falls. Safety in the home is very important and simple things like keeping a drink and tissues near a bed can stop a person from needing to get out of bed unnecessarily.
