Illness, something that can befall anyone includes you and your family. When we fall ill, we will need to rest to help us on recovering from it. If we are taken to the hospital, we will get proper treatment and care along with the proper facility such as the hospital bed. When we are allowed to discharge from the hospital sure that is a great thing since that means we are getting better.
Hospital bed sure will help patient to recover with the comfort of the mattress and adjustable elevation. It also makes things easier for patient who rides on it and the people who take care of the patient. However, when patient has been discharged from the hospital it may be time to say goodbye to that convenient as well. You may think that way, but in fact you are still able to get hold of the hospital bed convenience in your home by purchasing one.
Generally there are two kinds of hospital bed that we can use.
- First, there is manual hospital bed. Just as the name said, it is manually controlled with cranks to change the bed position. Because of that, if the patient is incapable of moving those cranks, then the help of someone else will be needed to do it.
- As for the second type is the electric hospital bed. Of course contrary to the first one this one is considerably automated. A control pad that usually hooked to the bed side with proper manner in reach by patient’s hand is used to adjust the bed. With that control pad this type of hospital bed is considered as better than the first one. Patient who has limited motion may still able to adjust the bed alone as long as still capable of using hands.
According to the description above, you surely will think that electric hospital bed holds many advantages over the manual one. Therefore, you may choose that one for your needs. However, you may still think whether or not you should purchase a hospital bed. After all, it may not be used anymore once you or your family has recovered. Having that in mind, get one of those electric hospital beds from hospital bed rentals will be your best course.
Rent one instead of buy one. That sure has a nice ring to your mind as well as your budget. This way is perfect for those who seek for hospital bed for short period usage. Once it is unneeded get it back to the rental. Of course the money you will have to spend on it is also considerably lower.
Once you have rented it, it is time to place it in your home. Some tips on its placing:
- Place it in a room that can get it in any position
- Make sure that where the bed placed is adjacent to bedroom or place that can be heard whenever the patient needs help.
- Place it near bathroom is wise decision
- Don’t place it upstairs
- Avoid placing it near windows or doors to avoid cold draft of air
- It may be better to not place it in bedroom. Place it where family activities taking place, yet still pay attention to the privacy
