Modern hospital beds are designed to improve the safety and functionality of patient care settings, reduce injuries, and minimize physical strain on clinicians and healthcare workers. Mission Health can help you choose the right specialty mattresses for the quality of life for patients and staff as a whole.
What types of specialty beds are available?
Today, specialty beds come with a variety of features. From Fully electric homecare beds, Low beds that not only reduce falls but eliminate them, to Heavy Duty Bariatric beds. Each one of the beds Mission Health and Home carries, can enhance patient positioning and help reduce pressure injuries and accelerate the healing process.
Mission Health supplies and installs mobile, sit-to-stand, and heavy-duty floor lifts for nearly all lifting and extended care applications. After performing an assessment of your facility, our team will walk you through choosing the right equipment to best accommodate the needs of your patients and caregivers.
Does your facility need patient lifts?
Patient lifts can support caregivers who perform extensive patient handling tasks in their day-to-day. Patient handling tasks include (but aren’t limited to):
- Lifting patients out of bed
- Transferring patients from beds to toilets, showers, or chairs
- Horizontal lifting
If your patients have limited mobility, or if you manage a long-term care facility, an acute care wing in a hospital, or employ home healthcare workers, patient lifts can make it easy to maneuver and carry patients of all weight ranges.
What are the benefits of positioning chairs?
With up to 40° of adjustable seat tilt and up to 90° of adjustable back recline, your patients can receive adequate, custom-adjusted back and leg rest without slipping and sliding. Positioning chairs also support Trendelenburg positioning.
