Fall Risk Abatement.
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, typical 100-bed nursing homes report between 100 and 200 falls per year. Of these falls, approximately 1,800 result in the death of the resident and 10% to 20% cause serious injury.

Falls occur more often in nursing home residents than the general population because the nursing home resident tends to be less robust than seniors living outside of facilities. There are a variety of reasons for falls but environmental hazards, such as lack of bed rails and improper bed height, contribute to between 16% and 27% of all falls.

MedSTAR Medical’s offerings in this area are focused on reducing the incidence and severity of bed-related falls. We offer a Full Electric Low Bed, which, at its lowest height, is only 7 ¾ inches from the floor; a Perimeter Guard Mattress which is designed to prevent patient “roll off’ when the rails are down; and a Soft Fall Bedside Mat which further reduces the distance between bed and floor and cushions the impact in the event that a patient does roll off the bed.
