Here are the 3 Types of Hospital Beds you Need to Know About

by Shreya Mehta Executive
Are you running a hospital or plan to run one in the future? Are you a medical student who has an aim to run her own hospital someday? Are you in a partnership with someone who runs a hospital? If you answered with a ‘yes’ to any of this questions, this is entirely for you.

Most of the people, when starting their own hospital or speciality clinic, pay attention to the macro things – the team of doctors they will need, how trained they should be, how experienced they should be, what kind of equipment should they set up, what all technology will they need, what will the hospital be known for, how much support staff will be required – etcetera. That said, there are important factors which people miss out upon in these scenarios, sometimes something as fundamental as the hospital beds.

At the first instance, hospital beds may seem like the least important thing while planning to start a hospital. That said, these beds do not produce themselves. Their production has to be well planned and then well executed. This planning starts with understanding the three key types of hospital beds you should know about:

1. Plain hospital bed. This is your all-purpose-in-one bed. Usually, the plain hospital bed comes to use for smaller purposes such as dressing up a patient, regular check-up, for letting patients take rest in the general ward etc. Any general hospital bed manufacturer can help you produce these. Now, there is not much functionality or comfort in the plain hospital bed. Like its name suggests, it is really simple at its core and only serves as a very simple bed for letting patients rest. Largely, if the hospital wants to distinguish itself from the government facilities of the same nature or the general hospitals, it should focus on avoiding the only plain hospital beds and focus on providing more comfortable options instead.

2. Ward care bed.
This is a notch higher when it comes to complexity and comfort of the bed. Generally, these ward care beds are installed in most of the general wards and with a few attachments, they can prove to be of great utility. The thing about ward care beds is that they are very simple and very functional. They may not seem to be offering a lot but they actually do. Depending on the industry-relevant size, you as a hospital owner or manager need to decide what level of comfort do you want to provide to your patients even in the general ward. Accordingly, the general ward care beds can be adjusted before manufacturing by customizing them as per your needs. This becomes quintessential to the hospital’s management because once everything at the ground level is working perfect, is when the leaders can plan for strategic decisions. Like the plain bed, a general hospital bed manufacturer can produce these as required.

3. ICU bed. This is the most complex of the lot. Since the complexities are high, the customization combinations are also greater. Not every manufacturer can provide these with the required precision. Hence, ensure the product quality while buying it.
