Hospital Mattress

The environment of a health care facility is a unique one that requires specialized equipment and furniture. One important part of this is the hospital mattress. You might thing that there canít be anything too special about this type of item but you would be wrong. In fact the hospital mattress can be an important part of the patientís recovery and failure to use the right type could even lead to increased risk of health problems.

What is it Important to Have a Special Hospital Mattress?



A special hospital mattress is necessary because this health care facility provides challenges that are just not present in the other venues. It would not be possible to use a standard mattress in hospital because of the universal precautions; the tactics that have to be taken to prevent the spread of disease. The standard mattress material can be an ideal breeding ground for all type of microscopic life. This is not such a problem in our home because will have come from our family anyway. In a hospital though it is a different situation; if a standard bed was used it would quickly become covered in bacteria and viruses belonging to all the people in the ward. This is why a hospital mattress is needed; these are made from special material that is not so attractive for germs and is easy to keep clean.

Another way that the hospital mattress differs from the standard mattress is that they are designed for long-term use. We normally only spend about eight hours a night on our mattress at home but we can spend significantly more time on one in hospital. If we were to lie on a standard mattress for a long time without moving around much there is a huge risk that we would develop a pressure sore; nasty ulcers that can be hard to treat. Luckily there are special hospital mattresses that can be used to prevent these sores from occurring. They do this by not putting too much pressure on any part of the body.

Some Final Thoughts on the Hospital Mattress



The hospital mattress is much needed in health care facilities. It is also something that some people may need to purchase for their home. This might be because you or a member of the family has a long-term illness or because you need some time to recuperate at home following discharge from hospital. Here are just a few of the things you will want to consider when it comes to choosing a hospital mattress.
  • If you only need this item for a short time then you might be better off just renting rather than purchasing. It will also make sense to rent the bed as well in a lot of cases and you will be able to get both items from the same supplier usually.
  • If the patient is obese it might be necessary to purchase a bariatric mattress.
  • Make sure that any hospital mattress you are purchasing is going to fit the bed frame you intend to use.
