A good night’s sleep is the gateway to complete health and wellness.
That’s a line taken directly from our website. It’s not just marketing mumbo jumbo, it’s one of our core beliefs. Sleep plays a vital role in maintaining good health. Getting adequate rest on a consistent basis helps protect your mental health, physical health, and quality of life. It can mean the difference between adjusting to whatever comes your way and having difficulty coping with change, the difference between optimal wellbeing and increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. We spend over 200,000 hours of our lives in bed so it’s not overstating it to say that sleep is the underpinning of good health.
But for people suffering an illness or injury, getting a good night’s sleep can be a challenge, one that eventually leads to slower recovery or suboptimal health. Without the proper equipment, the search for a place to rest and recover can become a living nightmare. Luckily, there are options that can reduce discomfort and hospital visits and help support healthy patients in the comforts of home.
In the same way that shoes provide protection and comfort for our feet, a home hospital bed provides safety and comfort for your entire body and serves two main purposes:
In addition to supporting comfortable rest and a good night’s sleep, home hospital beds provide five main benefits:
At Wound Care, we offer hospital beds and accessories designed to meet our patients medical needs.
Semi-Electric Hospital Beds
Semi-Electric hospital beds allow the position of the head and feet to be adjusted automatically, the height of the bed frame is manually adjusted via a hand crank.
Beds with Full/Half-Size Rails
Rails are an essential safety tool for patients who seek to maintain their independence and the ability to get in and out of bed alone.
Hospital Bed Trapeze
A hospital bed trapeze bar allows patients to independently move and changes positions while still in bed. This accessory is another essential tool for helping maintain patient independence and assisting in transitions.
Gel Mattress Overlay
Gel Mattress Overlays can be put on any bed and provide patients with a supportive barrier between them and the surfaces they’re regularly bound to. Incontinent patients who are particularly susceptible to moisture changes due to moisture may find added benefit from a Gel Mattress Overlay.
Low Air Loss Mattress
Low Air Loss Mattresses are categorized by Medicare as a pressure ulcer treatment product. They can also serve the preventative goal of halting the advanced staging of pressure ulcers. Many patients find low air loss mattresses so helpful, they never want to give them back, even when their treatment is complete! It is important to note that patients must have a pressure ulcer on the trunk, pelvis, or buttocks in order to qualify for a low air loss mattress.
Now for the $64 million question – will Medicare pay for my home hospital bed?
Then yes, Medicare may cover a portion of the cost of a home hospital bed (up to 80% after your deductible). Remember that both your doctor and your medical equipment supplier must also participate in the Medicare program for coverage to apply.
