Learn About Buying Hospital Beds

What Are The Benefits Of Buying A Hospital Bed?

Hospital beds have features that increase the comfort for those in recovery and make it easier to manage mobility issues. Some basic features of a care bed include side rails, adjustable headrests and footrests, adjustable heights, and more room in which the patient can move around. Hospital beds are an ideal option for anyone who must be off their feet for extended periods or have trouble getting in and out of bed.

Ordinary beds are insufficient in cases of long-term immobility, leading to problems like bedsores and longer healing times. Certain conditions can make it more difficult to eat, drink, and get a good night’s sleep in a regular bed. Through SonderCare, anyone can add the utility and support of a hospital bed in the comfort of their own home or residence.

Hospital beds also make it easier for caregivers, as the height and positions are adjustable to make getting in and out of bed more easily. The patient and caregiver can also raise the bed to make it easier for the caregiver to attend to the patient without bending over.

Are Hospital Beds Covered Under Medicare?

Yes, Medicare Part B covers hospital beds as “durable medical equipment.” To attain coverage for your hospital bed purchase, the supplier and your doctor must be enrolled in Medicare. The patient must be covered by Medicare Part B and be assessed by their doctor, who will provide written documentation of their medical records and prescribe the bed. The supplier also must receive the order before billing Medicare. Consult Medicare.gov for more information.

Buying The Ideal Hospital Bed Frame

Purchasing a hospital bed for private use starts with choosing the right bed frame. Seniors, patients, and their families can choose from basic selections to luxury models, taking into account what the person using the bed needs for adjustable functionality, comfort, and assistance.

There’s a stereotype about hospital beds being large, cumbersome, and hard to use. That isn’t true! Every model on the market is an electric bed, meaning it uses a power source to let the patient raise and lower the height, adjust the position of the mattress, and use accessories that add comfort and stability.

Features like this make it easier to get into walkers or wheelchairs independently or without added pain and discomfort. For those at risk of falling, have mobility or balance issues, require more positioning options, cannot sleep on flat mattresses, or receive care where a higher bed height and bed re-positioning is important, hospital beds are easy to adjust.

What Makes Hospital Bed Mattresses Unique?

As essential as the proper bed frame is the hospital mattress. Regular mattresses do not work with adjustable or hospital beds; the mattress must contour to the positions the bed can take. While also giving more positional options to the patient, hospital mattresses are designed to redistribute pressure, decreasing the likelihood of bedsores and other ailments of lengthy bed rest. They provide both comfort and a firm foundation for the user, letting them relax while lying down and sit up on the side of the bed with ease.

The SonderCare line of premium Hospital Style Mattresses provides the look and feel of a luxury home mattress while accommodating the levels of comfort and enjoyment of an adjustable bed. Customers can find both the essential COMFORT model and the premium DREAM, each ideal for users in all settings.

Hospital Beds Are The Ideal Choice For Seniors

Hospital beds aren’t only for those in recovery: seniors living by themselves, with family, or in a residence can enjoy the comfort, safety, and independence provided by hospital beds. They and their families can purchase hospital beds for their homes or residential facilities designed for their needs and specifications. The best part is that SonderCare models neither look nor feel like hospital beds – they look and feel luxurious. Anyone with long-term mobility issues will find their lives improved by a private hospital bed that feels like a regular bed!

Hospital beds and mattresses offer comfort, support and durability, and are ideal for private settings. SonderCare makes it easy for consumers to find hospital beds that work for them. Our beds provide the care and support for people that a traditional hospital bed would, while being the only option on the market that combines functionality with an attractive, stylish, non-institutional design.
