Stretchers, Bath/Shower

Definition : Stretchers (also called shower trolleys) upon which patients can be bathed or showered. These stretchers or trolleys can either be rolled into a shower/bathing area, or a patient could be bathed with the help of a handheld shower. Some bath/shower stretchers are attached to the wall in the patient bathing area; these can be hinged to fold flat, and can be adjusted for height. To facilitate bathing, some bath/shower stretchers come equipped with side walls that form a shallow container that can be filled with water to provide a shallow bath for the patient. Bath/shower stretchers can be raised or lowered, as needed, and can be tilted for patient comfort and to drain water. Standard models are designed to hold up to 150 kg/330 lbs of weight, including the patient and water; bariatric bath/shower stretchers designed to hold up to 450 kg/1,000 lbs of weight are available. Bath/shower stretchers are used in hospitals, assisted living and rehabilitation facilities, and in nursing homes.
