Stacking Storage Equipment That Saves Space
Storing stretchers, gurneys, and hospital beds can be a challenge because they are very large and heavy (especially when 7% to 10% of a hospital's beds are broken and waiting for repair). Many hospitals have been forced to store stretchers and beds temporarily in hallways because there is no space to store them. Now there is a solution to the problem of storing stretchers, gurneys, and hospital beds with stacking storage equipment that saves space.
How Storing Stretchers, Gurneys, and Hospital Beds Vertically Saves Space
While floor space might not be freely available for storing stretches, gurneys, and beds, there is typically an abundance of vertical space in hospitals. The stacking storage equipment (also called motorized bed lifts) use vertical space instead of horizontal space to provide efficient storage to keep hospital beds organized and out of hallways. Bed lifts are offered in 2, 3, 4, and 5 high units to meet your room's available vertical space.
To operate the stacking storage lifts, stretchers, gurneys, or hospital beds are rolled onto storage platforms that raise up by pushing a button. Once the first bed is raised up, the second bed is loaded and raised until all your beds are in the unit.
Benefits of Stacking Storage Equipment Lifts
Here are just some of the benefits of the stacking storage equipment for storing stretchers, gurneys, and hospital beds:
- Safely stores stretchers, gurneys, and hospital beds to clear beds from corridors and hallways
- Centralizes the storage of stretchers and beds so that you always know where they are
- Because beds are moved out of the way, you have more space to complete repairs
