The purpose of this case study is to demonstrate how FloorBed® can reduce the risk of injuries from bed falls.Hospital Episode Statistics for England show that in one year, there were 21,722 episodes of falls involving beds with 19,296 subsequent hospital admissions. 
The FloorBed® lowers to a floor level height of 71mm (3”); low enough to reduce the impact of a fall from the bed and reduce the risk of injury. A study was carried out to demonstrate that FloorBed® is a possible solution to this widespread problem. Westgate House Healthcare was chosen; an establishment that provides a range of services including residential care, nursing care, intermediate care, palliative care and dementia care.
The objective of the study was to measure two statistics:
As displayed in the chart, the following outcomes were achieved during the study period:
“This is a remarkable result as our biggest falls risk (i.e. falls from bed) has now almost been eliminated, without any additional restrictions placed on our residents. the project has been a huge success as far as we are concerned.”
