The number one question we usually get, when someone see’s our beautiful bed ends for the first time is, will they fit my bed? This section is dedicated to answering that question.
Short term and long term hospital beds
There are basically two types of hospital beds. The first is short- term care beds, which are used in hospitals, for short term medical treatment.
These beds are very bulky and have many electronic controls on them. It’s not our intent to change the appearance of these beds.
The second one is home or long-term care beds. This is the type, you probably have and the one we can transform into a beautiful piece of furniture. I will break this type into two sub-types.
Home care beds are used in private homes and some long-term care facilities. Some of their manufactures include:
With cultural change taking place and the new CMS guidelines, the desire for Home-like Environments has never been as important and in such demand. Long-term care beds can be used in private homes, but are usually found in long term skilled nursing facilities, such as nursing homes, assisted living, hospice care, and ALTC hospitals. They can also be found in sleep centers, recovery units and birthing centers.
