A good night’s sleep is the gateway to complete health and wellness. Making sure patients are safe in their beds is a priority for Wound Care Solutions, that’s why we give the ability to customize orders with full rails or half rails for maximum safety.
In addition to rails, our beds and gel mattress overlays also offer supreme bed sore and pressure ulcer prevention.

Human beings are estimated to spend over a third of our lives sleeping. For the average person, this equates to over 200,000 hours spent in bed. In the same way that shoes provide safety and comfort for our feet, a bed should provide safety and comfort for your entire body. Our beds are expertly crafted to provide maximum safety and total body wellness, allowing patients to safely change position without the risk of falling. These advanced safety measures can be the difference maker between a healthy home patient and a costly trip to the hospital.
Home hospital beds with gel mattress overlays serve as an excellent wound care product for any patient at risk for pressure ulcers or any patient in need of wound care services, but home hospital beds can be especially important in wound care for diabetic patients.
It is recommended that patients with Stage 4 pressure ulcers use a low air loss mattress in order to properly treat pressure ulcers.
Gel Mattress Overlays can be put on any bed and provide an essential barrier between patients and the surfaces they're bound to regularly. Incontinent patients with mobility limitations may be particularly susceptible to pressure ulcers due to moisture. Moisture can exaggerate and hasten skin breakdown, leading to more pressure ulcers that form faster. You do not have to order a hospital bed in order to get a gel mattress overlay, as these mattresses fit on beds of all types.Read More About How Gel Mattress Overlays Work
Customizing your sleeping and health experience is essential to maintain positive outcomes and prevent trips to the hospital. We offer a number of options to choose the bed that’s right for you. There are no additional documentation requirements for bed rails. All patients who qualify for a bed also qualify for bed rails and a gel mattress overlay for bed sore and pressure ulcer prevention.
Many patients are safe in beds without rails, but, as you age, you may want the addition security that half rails offer. This will allow the patient to be safe in bed, while also preserving independence and the ability to get in and out of the bed alone. At some point, you and your caregiver may determine that full rails that completely limit your ability to get in and out of bed are appropriate.
All medical records and charts for home hospital bed patients must meet this criteria. The patient must require frequent changes in body position in order to qualify or have an immediate need for changes in body position.
The patient must also have one of the following:
Make sure to document that the patient needs to have their head elevated more than 30 degrees. In addition, list the reason why the patient needs their head elevated. This factor is the difference maker in whether the patient qualifies and is essential to verifying that the patient needs a semi-electric bed that can elevate versus a regular bed.
In order for a patient to qualify, they need to have a condition that requires their body to be positioned in ways not possible in an ordinary bed. Make sure to list this condition and why a regular bed won’t suffice.
If the patient suffers from pain related to certain body positions, make sure to document this. List how repositioning the patient will alleviate these pains and why these pains cannot be alleviated in an ordinary bed.
