After the implementation of last year’s project, We Help Hospice Kids – Monitors for vital functions!, we were faced with the overwhelming reality that 85% of the children in care were abandoned by their families upon learning of the serious diagnosis.

Their pediatric beds are the center of life, and the current ones, 25 years old, no longer provide the necessary comfort and safety. Donated in 2016, they were used for 15 years in Germany before reaching the Sibiu Hospice. The 9 bedridden children need functional pediatric beds to have an adequate recovery and care environment. Their level of degradation has reached a critical point, motivating us to propose this project.

The need

Pediatric beds are essential elements in patient care in the hospital environment, offering comfort, safety, functionality and hygiene. The beds are designed to meet the strict requirements and standards of the medical industry and to ensure an optimal recovery environment for patients and increased efficiency for medical staff. Patient safety is an essential aspect in their design.

They are equipped with locking and braking systems that prevent uncontrolled movement of the bed and reduce the risk of falls or accidents. They can also be equipped with side bumpers, which provide additional support to patients during movements and protect them from accidental falls. With height adjustment, position adjustment, locking and braking, electric lift and lower, and patient monitoring functions, pediatric beds help improve patient care and comfort during hospitalization.

The changes

The current beds donated in 2016, from Germany, at the establishment of the Carl Wolff hospice in Sibiu, were used for 15 years and later transferred to Romania. Unfortunately, they show obvious signs of decay and pose a serious threat to the safety of the children in the Hospice’s care. It is imperative to highlight the urgent need to replace these beds to ensure a safe and secure environment for young patients.

Hospital beds are an essential element in patient care in the hospital environment. They offer comfort, safety and functionality to both patients and medical staff.
