Security. Not surprisingly, the first and most important factor to consider when purchasing healthcare furniture is the safety of the product. Think about the types of patients your health care facility treats every day. For ordinary adult care facilities, to ensure that all guests feel at home during their stay. Depending on the type of patient you often see, you may need even more. If you are outfitting orthopedic or senior facilities, butt chairs should be available for guests who may have difficulty getting out of bed and who are not in standard guest seats.
In addition to having chairs that can safely withstand greater weight, they should also have safe exits, meaning that they should be able to support the weight and movement required for individuals to move away from them. Chairs with armrests should include padded armrests that are comfortable and easy to grip, and they must be able to support the weight of an adult pressing them down in order to get up and leave the chair. Similarly, armless chairs should be provided for larger patients who may not want to use weight-loss chairs. Keep in mind that creating a therapeutic atmosphere involves giving your patient the freedom to choose how to sit.
Combine joints carefully. While it may require a lot of research and comparing different pieces of furniture, try to incorporate as little use of combination furniture as possible into your healthcare furniture. These safety concerns can be found in any type of furniture with moving parts, from foldable trays and bedside tables to adjustable chairs and cabinets. Although it is almost impossible not to use modular modules on furniture, there is no need to leave some areas out. Tip: Add furniture that uses piano hinges instead of cabinet hinges to improve safety, especially in furniture used around children.
Avoid furniture with welds. Also known as cording or pipes, seats with contact elements provide a good catch point for bacteria to grow. Not only can bacteria spread through contrasting sutures and pipes, but these interior decoration elements can also irritate the skin. Instead, look for seats with waterfall edges to minimize bacterial capture points and provide a higher level of comfort for your guests. If your seats do have seams, make sure they face outwards (toward the person sitting in the chair) to minimize the opportunity for bacteria to grow.
