Hillrom Can Help Boost Bed Capacity

In COVID-19 hot spots across the United States, 78% of hospitals report they are above 80% capacity, and 6% are over capacity.1

  • Special pricing on smart bed packages and upgrade kits can help increase med-surg and ICU bed capacity.
  • Financing options can help with flexible purchase, lease and deferred payment plans.
  • Accelerated service schedules can help meet your most pressing service and training needs quickly and efficiently.

Hillrom Can Help Keep Patients Safe

An average patient spends up to 83% of their hospital stay in bed,2 and high-acuity COVID-19 patients are even less mobile. If you don’t have these patients in an appropriate bed, safety can suffer.

  • 40-inch-wide mattresses, lifts and straps can help with patient proning and limit the number of caregivers needed for this essential procedure.
  • Advanced microclimate management surfaces can help prevent skin breakdown and sensors can instantly alert caregivers to incontinence events.
  • Contact-free, continuous monitoring may help detect fluctuations in heart rate and respiratory rate that can indicate patient deterioration.
  • Smart beds can help prevent falls by bringing bed state information and alerts beyond the patient room directly to the care team.

Hillrom Can Help Connect Patients to Caregivers and Family Members

With COVID-19 patients in isolation, visitation prohibited, and caregivers limiting trips in and out of patient rooms, people who need comfort can feel cut off. Nurses and doctors have shared heartbreaking stories of using personal smartphones and tablets to help lonely COVID-19 patients reach out to loved ones.

  • Patient engagement solutions can help connect patients to their families and caregivers via videoconferencing.
  • Clinical communications solutions can help patients send requests to caregivers via smartphones or tablets, even in alternate care areas without traditional wiring and network connections.
  • Remote viewing of ventilator and physiological monitor data can help caregivers keep close tabs on patients without repeatedly entering patient rooms.
  • Delivery of critical patient information to mobile devices can alert caregivers when a patient needs immediate attention.
