Narration:
A hospital bed is useful if the person is recovering from surgery or needs relief from certain health conditions. It's also vital during the late stages of dementia when your loved one has difficulty walking.

Being able to adjust the bed's positions makes caregiving easier and the person more comfortable when in bed. Not all hospital beds are the same, however.

And for insurance purposes, we'll also provide the classification names Medicare uses for each type of hospital bed, along with coverage guidelines.
