A Closer Look at Essential Safety and Security Features in Hospital Bed Rentals


As a family member or caregiver, ensuring both the safety and comfort of your loved ones is undoubtedly your top priority. In fact, according to a study by The Journal of Patient Safety, around 10% of patients experience a fall during their hospital stay. This statistic underlines the importance of safety measures, particularly when considering hospital bed rentals for home use.


Here at Prosperity Health Inc., we understand your concerns and are committed to providing solutions that not only offer comfort but also prioritize safety.


Our Fall Prevention Features and Strategies


Adjustable Height

Adjustable height is one of the key safety features of our hospital beds. A lower setting can effectively make it simpler for those with mobility challenges to get in and out. At the same time, a higher one can facilitate help for your caregivers, making their tasks much less physically demanding.


Bed Exit Alarm

A bed exit alarm alerts your caregivers for that timely intervention. It is particularly beneficial for patients who may become disoriented or, say, confused due to their medication or other medical conditions.


Locking Casters

Locking casters are particularly important as they ensure your patient remains firmly in place, even when they are moving or adjusting their position. Also, it allows for easy mobility when necessary, such as during room cleaning or even repositioning. Once it is in the desired position, you can simply lock the casters again to make it stable and secure.


Why Opt For Our Hospital Bed With Rails and Alarms



Protection and Support

If your loved one, recovering from surgery or perhaps managing a condition that affects their mobility, needs to adjust their position in bed, without adequate support, even this seemingly simple task can pose risks to them. They could accidentally roll off it or maybe strain themselves in the process.


Acting as a protective barrier, our bed with safety rails prevents such accidents. But the benefits of these rails extend beyond protection. They can also be a reliable support to hold onto, offering them stability and leverage to make any movements both safer and easier, serving as their helping hands.


Lifesaving Potential

Let's take the example of a patient recovering at home after a major surgery. They wake up in the middle of the night–disoriented due to medication. Then they attempt to leave the bed without assistance. This situation could lead to a fall or other accident, potentially causing them even further harm.


However, with our alarm systems in place, you can avoid this.


It is designed to alert you or your caregivers immediately when the patient tries to exit. If you're in another room or perhaps asleep, you know that you will be instantly alerted, reducing your stress and worry.

It's also important to think about its placement within your home for easy access. So make sure you avoid placing it near clutter or any of your furniture that could pose a tripping hazard.
