Falls Prevention and Patient Safety

 
According to The Kings Fund, falls cost the NHS more than £2 billion per year, with the cost of hospital, community and social care services for each patient who fell, were almost four times as much in the 12 months after admission for the fall, as the cost of the admission itself. In 2011, falls in hospitals accounted for 324,000 or 26% of all patient safety incidents so it is easy to see the massive human and fiscal costs that falls within the acute setting, as well as the massive burden on nursing time and productivity.

 
Up to now, ultra low or floor level beds within the acute setting have been at best a compromise in several ways:

⇒Acute specification beds have not been particularly low or
⇒Ultra low beds have had large end columns which restrict patient access and make emergency procedures, i.e. intubation, difficult to perform

 
The EN9000 bed from Alrick answers this question:

"We need a floor level bed, for patient safety, but it can't have end columns - we need all-round patient access for emergencies, for intubation etc - which bed can we use?"
