Let’s face it. Hospital beds are far too valuable not to have in proper storage units when they aren’t in use. Keeping them haphazardly in inappropriate areas is not only a safety concern; it does a disservice to staff members who value cleanliness and organization.

- Hospital beds contain many electrical components that may fail. At any given time, at least 10% of all hospital beds are in maintenance. The average cost of a hospital bed is about $4,000, so beds are rarely thrown out.
- Municipalities require the hospital to keep a certain number of beds to meet a percentage of the population density. This count may be greater than the square footage that the hospital allows. Beds must then be stored somewhere else, and typically that area is not readily accessible to patient areas.
- Beds do not easily sit on shelves, nor do they stack or fold. They take up a tremendous amount of valuable square footage.
- Beds weigh as much as 900 pounds. They can be maneuvered, but usually end up impeding access to other stored items. An entire room may have to be shifted around to retrieve various store material.
- Inaccessible floor space is turned into usable square footage.
- The product is automatic, easy to operate, and minimally invasive.
- The beds are secure and protected, reducing the risk of damage.
- The beds can be stored in a centralized area, cutting down on misplaced inventory.
- The lifts reduce fire hazards in hallways. Not only does the Bedlift make it safer for staff, but also eliminates the risk of JHACO penalties for improper hospital bed storage.
