Smart beds with built-in sensors help keep patients safe

At your hospital, the beds aren’t just comfortable—they’re also smart. The beds weigh patients and record the weights in the patients’ electronic health record.

The beds can also sense movement when someone is trying to get up. This alerts the nurses nearby, who can check on patients who might be at risk of falling.

The technology even creates a report so that nurses can look at the pattern of when a patient’s weight is shifting in bed. This can help them stop a fall before it starts.
