A complete quality bed exit system that will reduce falls in the home.
This Bed Exit Package will let you know when your patient sits up in bed with the intention of getting up. Being both high quality and simple to set up and use, you will hear the alert from another room, and be able to get to your patient before they start to stand and thereby reduce the probability of falls.
To use, the pad should be placed under the lower sheet, starting approximately 10 centimeters (3-4") from the side of the bed. If your patient weighs over 8 stone, you can place the pad in your patient's middle back area. Under 8 stone, the pad should be placed underneath the patient's bottom area. The pad goes horizontally across the bed.
The cord from the pad, runs along the side of the mattress and plugs into the bed alarm monitor, which can be attached to the bed, placed on the bedside table, or if it won't be kicked or damaged, you can place on the floor next to the bed.
The pad, because of the foam interior, is comfortable for the patient to lie upon. When they lie-down, the alarm, which features volume control and tone options, makes two quick beeps to let you know that the system is correctly assembled and ready to work. When the patient then sits up, with the intention of getting off of the bed, the alert will start to sound. Place the volume on a level where you will hear from adjacent rooms in the house. You will then return to your patient, to assist them.
To silence the alert, you simply press the Reset button on the front of the bed alarm. Alternatively, if your patient lays back down onto the pad, the alarm will reset itself automatically, and be ready to alert you the next time they start to get up. A great aid for caring for a patient or elderly person at home. And can also be used in a nursing home environment to alert the Carers that your parent, spouse, or other family member, needs some special help. This product is not a substitute for visual monitoring and may not be suitable for all at risk for fall patients.
