The Total Lift Bed: Elevating a New Generation
As the patient population has grown older and heavier, your staff is confronted
with new challenges. Your hospital must achieve early ambulation while
insuring staff safety and observing patient safe handling protocols.
OSHA has determined that nursing has become a dangerous profession
due to an increasing number of work related injuries. Medicare has
promulgated new regulations which penalize hospitals for trips and
falls as well as injuries to patients.
Throughout the country, several states have enacted minimal lift laws which mandate that healthcare facilities establish policies to reduce or minimize staff lifting. More importantly, although we think of bariatric patients as grossly overweight, the BMI index places most bariatric patients at the average weight of 275 pounds.
VitalGo has introduced the Total Lift bed which will address many of your concerns. In too many cases, transferring a post op joint replacement or cardio-thoracic patient to a standing position resulted in injuries to either the staff or the patient.
Our Total Lift Bed can, in many cases, transfer a patient to standing with zero lift! When your hospital performs risk assessment for either staff or patient safety, we are sure that the Total Lift Bed will be a valuable specialty bed to address your concerns.
As you are aware, there are incidents of post-op complications due to limited ambulation. The Total Lift Bed can tilt the patient to any vertical position which will reduce post-op respiratory complications and allow staff to safely assess the patient’s weight bearing ability.
We are sure that when you watch our video, you will discover a variety of ways in which our specialty bed can address your needs.
