The Maintenance of Hospital Bed

Aug. 14, 21

Hospital beds or medical beds are designed for safety and comfort and transportation needs.

In order to prevent accidents, the staff must be familiar with the correct procedures and conduct regular safety and maintenance inspections. Regular maintenance is essential to prevent unnecessary injuries. As a hospital bed manufacturer, I'd like to share it with you.

Clean the Hospital Bed

Wipe the surface of the bed with a soft damp cloth. Make sure to use only warm water and mild detergents.

Wipe and dry the bed, making sure to remove all excess detergent to prevent accumulation.

General cleaning procedures will not correct serious contamination or microbial infections. If it exists, please contact the infection control nurse.

Check for damage or stains on the surface of the mattress cover.
