At Protects Plus, we understand the critical role beds and mattresses play in patient care. Not only do they provide comfort and support, but they also contribute significantly to patient safety. That's why we offer comprehensive bed and mattress audits to ensure your healthcare facility meets the highest standards.

Why are Bed & Mattress Audits Important?

Regular audits are essential for several reasons:

  • Safety Compliance: Beds and mattresses must meet specific fire safety regulations, depending on the environment. Our audits verify your beds and mattresses comply with the correct fire safety rating (e.g., CRIB 7) for your facility. 

  • Specification Verification: Mattresses come in various specifications for weight capacity, pressure relief, and other factors. Audits ensure your beds and mattresses meet the specific needs of your patients.

  • Damage Detection: Over time, beds and mattresses can suffer wear and tear, leading to potential safety concerns. Audits identify any damage that might require repair or replacement.

  • Improved Patient Care: Properly functioning beds and mattresses contribute to patient comfort, sleep quality, and overall well-being.

The software is fully automated allowing you to set reminders on when your next audit is required as well as notifying you of any life cycling. This ensures the beds and mattresses remain compliant to medical device policies and other NHS guidelines with regards to Fire Retardancy and ensure they are being maintained in accordance to manufacturers requirements.
