How to unlock a hill rom bed will be available soon

hi everybody I'm Amanda an education

department were going to talk about how

to use the hill round bed today so first

before our patient gets on the bed I

want to go over the brake system so down

here at the bottom of the bed you have

green and orange you want to make sure

when you put your brake cover you're

pushing down on your orange that will

stop the bed obviously for moving

windows in the middle absolutely

the neutral is going to allow you to

move your bed sideways back and forth

around tight corners all of those things

however are the most important features

when you go green down here


the drive and that's actually at the

bottom of the bed it's going to drop a

wheel down and it's going to help um

insist so that you're not having to push

the bank you can actually drive it with

two fingers on each so here's the

handles on each handle there's a little

button underneath you're going to push

the button and then just push forward

and move the best for you push it and

pull back to the back you have to give

it a second you can't just push the

button and push you have to push the

button and wait and look or slowly drive

the bed for this is important it's a

very expensive mechanism is meant to

help protect your back if you were to

drive you fed the neutral on a carpet it

could injure you so that's why we have

to drive praying you want to make sure

that that noise have stopped each time

before you drive it or before you lock

it in keep it in the position we don't

move while that machine is going alright

so and for our patience with our manager

for FCU and version care and before she

is in the best we're going to zero in

the mint so here I'm going to show you

how to use the weight system you want to

make sure that before you place your

patient in the bed that you're zeroing

the bed with all the materials that will

continue to stay on for example the

pillow the SCB machine the blankets and

any other equipment that will stay on

all the time you want to zero that so

you're getting a true patient weight so

to do that you're going to push and hold

the zero button and it's zeroed so now

our patient can go ahead and get on the


and we want a waiver we'll have that

available to us okay patient go ahead

and get on the bed the other important

thing about zeroing the bed is that if

you want your bed alarm to work properly

it needs to be 0 so it's accurately

sensing weight distribution okay so

we're going to cover that because we're

not going to see her weight we'll take

off a button here

okay so as far as we know she weighs 14

pounds all right so let's go ahead ask

for privacy okay

so now I'm going to talk to you about

some of the functionalities you down

here on the bottom we have up and down

buttons this is nice when you're in a

position where you want to quickly get

your patient up or down but you can't

actually toggle on the armrests

so if you push one it turns it on push

again I'm not doing it right it'll

actually do it without you actually

having to touch the bedrail again down

same thing goes back down same thing

with the height of the bed you can go up

and down the reason I'm putting this up

is if I want to draw your attention to

the no foot sign down there it's bottom

this is because there's a laser that

goes from that area all the way to this

area if you have any IV tubing or

anything it will not allow you to put

the bed down so if your beds not going

down troubleshoot both sides to make

sure your legs your lasers are not

warped this is a little nightlight which

is nice so you can see around the foot

of your bed and so you also know that

your bed is in the locked position when

that is on okay so up here let's talk

about that alarm again like I said you

have to have your patient zeroed so that

you know where they're moving and where

their weight is distributed to so here

you have moving head up out of bed or

getting out of bed and completely out of

bed we never want to use this we want to

know before they're out of that that

they're going that direction so to set

your bed alarm you want to hit lock and

this one now you hear that you know that

it's on so now when my patient tries to

get out of bed let me lower this she

doesn't hurt herself

and please move like you're elderly

patients not healthy go ahead and try to

get out of them all right so she's

getting out of bed let's turn this off

you can hit alarm silence and that gives

you a moment and knows that you're in

the room but it's going to head go ahead

and keep this active so that when she

gets back in bed it will again reset if

you want to turn it off key and the

person and you turned off your bed alarm

so again key turn on wait for your beep

key to turn off and you're off you're

also going to want to make sure that you

push that when you select you have your

volume all the way up to the max volume

one of the benefits of this bed as well

is in the event of an emergency you do

have down here at the bottom a CPR

button this CPR button does not make

your bed hard it just lowers the head of

bed quickly okay so that allows us to

provide CPR to her without waiting for

these lovely buttons to do their job


have lots of things that you can do here

if we have somebody who would say seven

foot tall you can make the bed a little

bit longer by pushing and holding or you

can make the bed a little bit shorter if

they're a little bit shorter of a person

okay again bed up and down head up and

down feet up and down this illuminates

when the bed is not in the lowest

position we can put it in Trendelenburg

or reverse Trendelenburg here we can

give a boost which just puts the head

down so that you actually have an assist

when you're moving your patient up and

then you have the chair position which

is great for patients who can't get out

of bed but can benefit from that

hemodynamic test

so it's actually going to drop four feet

increase your head of bed you can eat in

this position so you can get all the

benefits of that blood flow without

actually having to get out of bed again

that's your chair position okay and then

we can just bring that back down to

where our shoes comfortable put you down

to the neutral bring everything back to


okay you have here as well turn assist

turn left turn right and that's just

really a way to help those heavier

patients when you're turning them or

moving them it will depress one side and

over inflate one side so that you're

moving them left and right as well as

your max inflate for CPR purposes and

then normal to resume normal functioning

out of it and what she'll feel inside

there is different air pockets moving so

that it continually continuously offsets

all the pressure but you still need to

turn and reposition your patient this

bed will not do that for you it's just a

supplement you have to keep your battery

life up so keep this bed plugged in when

you are not using it and when you're

using it only for transfer to a

different area would we unplug it you

can actually see down all the way at the

bottom the battery life here on the

drive is a little bit low on this bed

this would concern me if I'm going to go

away for quite a while I might run out

of battery lights on my drive and it'll

make it more difficult to move my bed I

will only be able to do a neutral

position so if I'd had this plugged in

it would have been all the way up here

naturally where you want it so to open

up your bed rails click and bring it

down for the lower parts of the bed

usually because the mattress is in the

way you have to do a little bit of a

push on it with your hips to get it off

one more thing is that you do have your

degree measure here so you know if you

have your head of bed at 30 degrees or

more you'll have that in this area as

well just as a check the turn assist

here I want to show you what that's

actually going to do it will only work

when you have all four bed rails up

which makes sense you don't want to turn

your patient and have them end up on the

ground so that's the only way it's going

to work latkes turn right if you listen

you can hear the bed change it's going

to start to inflate if you watch drew

side of her body it's going to turn her

more to her right side so this area of

the bed is getting Proctor where this

area is firmer

so now I'm in theory I've already got

returned to one way I would be able to

actually turn her safely in one

direction but just gives you a little

bit Lauren putting very little pressure

and of course you know but you can see

here this bed is really inflated on this

side and very depressed on that side if

I want her to roll back again I just put

it in the neutral or normal position

going to kind of stay on our side and

again if it's returning and rolling up

the patient will go ahead and go left

we'll watch how it slowly depresses on

the left side and slowly increases on

the right side to assist us and turning

her again to the left to do care for our

patient this is not intended to be part

of your every two hours turn and

reposition this is an assist for patient

care so again you can see here this is

very overinflated under and played on

that side and a little bit of switch in

the head and we're good to go

and then again it's going to normalize

for us and suffer back into a neutral

position this is a nice added benefit

for your tubes and lines to help is a

cord Wrangler to make sure that you have

all of your IVs through here and they're

not draping all over your patient system

and of course you're by people with

extra hooks or X you have any questions

call the Education Department we're

always willing to help
