Welcoming patients into your facility when they are at their most fragile is a unique responsibility and there is a crucial balance to be had when looking to buy mental health beds. Here are the top 3 things to consider when purchasing mental health beds for a challenging environment.
Trying to create a homely environment is an important factor when creating a room for a mental health patient. When at their most vulnerable, a few thoughtful features can offer some comfort.
Reinforced Beds offers a range of mental health beds that are incredibly robust but wouldn’t look out of place in a normal bedroom. An array of divan bases, metal beds and wooden beds are available. These strong beds are created to cope with challenging environments and any associated attempts to damage them.
The Contract Mesh Bed, for example, can easily accommodate a person up to 23 stone on its sturdy structure. The single bed has a key feature of being made from just one welded part. This sturdy base does not need middle support, making the bed much harder to break.
When patients reach a crisis point and find themselves in a psychiatric facility, many have suffered sleep disturbance or disordered sleeping. The link with sleeping well and mental health is well documented. Going to bed at the same, reasonable time each night and sleeping soundly on a comfortable bed is key to finding mental and physical well being. Many psychiatric disorders disturb this balance and make getting enough sleep difficult, exacerbating mental health problems.
It is essential that mental health beds are as comfortable as possible to allow a decent night’s sleep to aid recovery. At Reinforced Beds, we offer a range of comfortable heavy-duty mattresses to complement our challenging behaviour beds.
Easy to fix
Choose a bed that can be easily fixed to save the cost of regular replacement. These ultra-sturdy beds have in-built robustness, just what is needed in potentially volatile places. However, should the worst happen, and the beds need repairing, Reinforced Beds has a range of spare parts on offer for customers. You can also rest assured that each purchase comes with a guarantee, so long as the damage has happened during everyday use.
