Hospital Bed Mattresses

Hospital bed mattresses are not only built for comfort but they have also been designed to prevent injury and complications that can occur with long term bed rest. These hospital bed mattresses need to be different from the mattresses we use at home for a number of reasons; for one thing we donít spend as much time lying on our standard mattress as we will on a hospital one.

How Hospital Bed Mattresses Differ From Standard Mattresses



One important way that hospital bed mattresses differ from standard mattresses is that they are far less likely to spread infection. The material that you will find in your bed at home will likely be full of all type of germs and other microscopic life forms. This isnít too much of a problem for us though because they have more than likely come from us or anybody we are sharing the bed with. In a hospital though there are many people carrying different bacteria and viruses; if we were to have a standard mattresses in hospitals then these would become homes for these nasty germs. This would be dangerous and make many of us more ill than what we were before we arrived in the hospital. This is why hospital bed mattresses are necessary; they are made from a material that is far less likely to accumulate bacteria and viruses. These hospital mattresses are also easy to clean.

Another way that hospital bed mattresses can differ from your standard mattress is that they have been created for much tougher usage. As we mentioned already people tend to spend a lot more time in bed in hospital than they normally would at home. This can lead to complication such as pressure sores. There are now special hospital bed mattresses that have been especially created to prevent the development of these nasty ulcers. This ensures that the patient doesnít need to stay in hospital for longer than they should due to complications. These days it is possible to get air mattresses or water mattresses for those patients who are at particular risk of developing pressure sores.

Another way that the hospital bed mattresses differ from your standard mattress is that you can get ones that are designed especially for obese patients who need to be immobile. These bariatric mattresses have been designed to put up with extra weight and they provide a lot more support. These bariatric mattresses also tend to be a lot bigger than your normal mattress. This can make bed confinement far more tolerable for those who are overweight.
