VersaCare® Med Surg Bed

Advanced technology for superior care

The VersaCare bed offers state-of-the-art technology enabling high quality care for mid to high acuity patients through advanced solutions supporting patient safety, patient mobilization, and skin care. The bed also assists caregivers with daily care making their job easier.


Help keep Your Patient's Skin Safe

US expenditures for treating pressure ulcers have been estimated at $11 billion per year.3 Keeping your patient's skin safe has never been more important. Reducing shear, friction, moisture, and heat can help aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. Skin protocols, used in conjunction with bed and surface technology, can help reduce pressure ulcers.

Features to Help Assist Patient Interaction

About 12% of nurses leave the profession because of back pain.4 On average, caregivers pull patients up in bed 35 times a day- a leading cause of back injury.5 Moving patients shouldn't involve back strain. It should be as simple as pressing a button. With the VersaCare® bed, repositioning patients has never been easier.
