Dignified Bathing Vital to Successful Long-Term Care Facilities
Residents and their families look closely at the care and respect given in nursing homes and long-term care facilities. Bathing, eating, toileting and genuine care are critical components to consider when looking for a place to live out the last chapter of one’s life. Rane Bathing and Accessibility has committed themselves to creating the best possible bathing solutions for healthcare settings for over three decades. A lovely, safe, functional tub that is easily accessible for both the bather and the care-giver goes a long way to demonstrate sincere care for the staff and residents of your facility.
Safe Rane Tubs for Healthcare Facilities
Rane has more experience than any other company since their founder was a pioneer in designing and crafting Walk-in Tubs and other accessible Bathing solutions for the healthcare field. Safety is built into every aspect of Rane Tubs from the walk-in doors, to the anti-scald valves, to the slightly reclined seating contoured to comfortably fit human anatomy. Depending on the model, Rane tubs allow care-giver access on one, three or all sides of the tub offering greater access for assisted bathing without straining the caregiver in ways that produce back injuries. Rane’s policy of “no trips, slips or falls” is woven into every factor of their accessibility tubs—including those that need lifts or transfer assistance.
Respect and Dignity for Bather in Healthcare Setting
Rane’s thoughtfully-designed Accessibility Tubs may put safety and function at the top of the list, but the lovely style of Rane Tubs exudes an exquisite upscale look. Your residents, their families and your staff will feel like they have stepped into a personal spa. Rane’s designers have incorporated ways to take the chill factor away as your residents don’t have to sit in a cold, unfeeling tub while the water fills up to get them warm. Many tubs offer a prefill option that allows warmed water to quickly soak the patient while seated in a comfortable slightly reclined contoured seat. There is also a fast drain so a warm towel and bathrobe can quickly cover the modest bather. Many features allow residents to bathe as independently as possible granting increased respect and dignity.
Make Bathing a Pleasant Experience in Your Long-term Care Facility
Bathing can be a dreaded chore for both resident and care-giver, but a lovely Rane Tub can make it feel like a day at the resort. Add a little artwork, flowers and respect for privacy when possible and a Rane Tub can add to your facility by relaxing nerves, soothing sore muscles, improving circulation, stopping the spread of infection (note Ranes’ built-in sanitizing stations for easy use between bathers). You will have happier residents, families and staff. Contact Rane Bathing and Accessibility today for more information.
