If you have a loved one who has undergone a major surgery, then there will likely be a long road to recovery. You can help them with that recovery by investing in the right tools. One such tool you may consider for your home is a hospital bed. Let’s discuss some of the benefits of an in-home hospital bed.
They Lend Themselves to Comfort
Some patients are not able to lie down comfortably to sleep during their recovery process. When you invest in an in-home hospital bed, your patient can easily adjust the bed to meet their needs. Mattresses for hospital beds are made with comfort in mind. These aren’t your typical mattress found in a hospital, we’re talking a new version which belongs just to you. So if you’re looking for an exceptionally comfortable resting experience for you or your patient, you may consider a powered, alternating-pressure mattress. Powered, alternating-pressure mattresses are made up of cells that can be inflated and deflated on a schedule. These mattresses help to improve airflow and reduce moisture content between the mattress and the person laying on it. This type of mattress is also helpful with reducing bed sores on those who are confined to a bed for a long period of time.
They Help Your Patient Stay Safe
Another great reason to invest in a hospital bed is for safety. Hospital beds can be easily outfitted with bars to help prevent falls if needed. If bed rails are not working for your patient, low hospital beds can lessen the impact of potential falls and aid your loved one in getting into and out of the bed. If a low hospital bed may cause trouble for a caregiver, hi-low hospital beds are also an option. Hi-low hospital beds have an adjustable height so you can enjoy the benefits of both a high and a low hospital bed without the cons of either. They’re flexible to meet your needs.
