TotalCare Bariatric Bed Offers Strength and Safety

Hill-Rom’s TotalCare Bariatric Bed reportedly provides added safety where it’s needed, protecting the caregiver and patient from injury, while improving staff efficiency.
This heavy duty hospital bed has been strengthened and specifically designed for the bariatric patient to help ensure safety, comfort and patient movement.
Hill-Rom’s bariatric adjustable bed's 30° HOB Angle Alarm is designed to alert caregivers when the head of the bariatric bed falls below a 30-degree angle.
The Head Angle indicator can monitor how long the Head Angle is above 30 degrees for up to eight days, assisting hospitals to comply with VAP prevention protocols and guidelines.
With the touch of a button, the bariatric bed's angle can be adjusted at any time in the patient's clinical pathway. The bed also features adjustable length and height.
The TotalCare Bariatric Bed uses the IntelliDrive Power Transport System, reportedly reducing the number of, and effort of, staff required to transfer bariatric patients, improving efficiency and promoting patient dignity.
