Why are Low Hospital Beds Needed?

There are many reasons why a patient might require one of these low hospital beds; here are just some of them
  • Some patients can be very confused and this may mean they are at risk of falls. In the past this has been dealt with by putting up cot sides but this can actually make things worse; patients may climb over the bars due to their confusion. If this happens they can fall and break bones or hit their heads. Many patients get confused in hospital; this may be due to disease related deterioration, a reaction to drugs, recovering from an anaesthetic, or a head injury. Putting these patients in low hospital beds can be a good idea because they will then not fall so far if they do get out of the bed.
  • Some patients are quite small in height this means that they might find it hard standing up from the average sized bed. Those who are recovering from injury or have had something like a stroke can find getting mobile again a real struggle. If the bed is too high this will make things even more difficult. With low hospital beds the smaller person will be able to sit on the edge of the bed and their feet will touch the ground; this will make it a lot easier to stand up.
