A hospital bed and mattress need to work together to provide maximum comfort for the patient, as well as allow for proper positioning to care for the patient. When selecting a mattress for your facility, you need to choose a higher height, as studies have shown that this is best for relieving pressure. You should put a vast amount of consideration into selecting a mattress based on decubitus prophylaxis. The Stiegelmeyer mattress system takes all of this into consideration and has created a mattress to meet all of these requirements, be compliant with hospital standards, safe, and comfortable.
