Who needs a hospital bed?

What should you look for in a hospital bed?

When looking for a quality hospital bed, some important factors to consider include the bed's:

  • Weight capacity

What's the main difference between hospital beds?

All hospital beds have head, foot and hi-low (bed height) adjustments, but the method of each adjustment will vary depending if the function is adjusted electrically with a hand pendant or manually with a crank.

  • Full Electric - Electric head, foot and bed height control
  • Semi Electric - Electric head and foot control, manual bed height
  • Manual - Crank adjusts head, foot and bed height manually
  • Heavy Duty (Bariatric) - Full electric, at least 42"

Most of the standard 36" wide full electric, semi-electric and manual hospital beds require no tools to assemble. However, it is recommended to have at least two people to assemble them because of the size of the parts.

Select either "Hospital Bed Frames" or "Hospital Bed Sets" first and then you will be able to sort by features.

How do I adjust the height of a hospital bed?

The height of a hospital bed can be adjusted using the hand cranks or electric hand controls, depending on the type of bed. Semi electric hospital beds include a hand control which operates the head and foot sections up an down, but a crank to manually raise and lower the entire height of the bed. Full electric hospital beds include a hand control which operates all three functions - head, foot and entire height - up and down.

However, the insurance provider will need to provide you with the local medical equipment supplier(s) in your network since it is a rental.
