Hospital Bed Information
Medically Edited and Reviewed by Dr. Erin Zinkhan MD, BSBE
Hospital beds are available in many sizes and functions. Modern hospital beds are very adaptable to the changing needs of individual patients as well as from one patient to another. While sleeping, many patients require a flat, level surface to sleep. While awake, many patients require head elevation, or foot elevation and often elevation in the knee area for comfort or for therapy.
