How to Choose Which Bed is Right for Me
Buying a hospital bed does not have to be such a confusing process. It should only require answering a few basic questions:
How old is the patient?
The first step to choosing a hospital bed is considering the age of the patient. If the patient is older it can often be difficult getting out of bed. They have a higher risk of falling.
A low bed offers the convenience of height adjustment and makes getting out of bed easier for the patient and caregiver.
Can I get in and out of bed alone?
If yes, then a Semi-Electric Bed or a Low Hospital Bed would be your best choice.
If no, then a Full-Electric Bed is recommended along with a Pressure Redistribution Mattress. Pressure Redistribution Mattresses can help prevent bedsores or pressure ulcers.
