Prevent Long-Term Resident Injuries While Bathing

Preventing falls in long-term care facilities is of utmost importance. It should be at the top of the list of priorities. Safety officers, insurance, agencies, families, and potential residents and their families all look to see what the safety measures are in place to keep residents from slips, trips and falls. Probably the greatest risk factor for falls is while taking baths. Rane Bathing and Mobility has been serving the healthcare field for over thirty years and they always keep safety as the most prominent feature. Rane knows all about bathing in health care settings. The founder was a pioneer in the Walk-in Tub field for healthcare facilities. This multi-generation family-owned business is well-respected and knowledgeable in health care bathing across the United States.

Medical History in Bathing Solutions

Rane’s founder became involved in some of the very first walk-in tubs created for health care facilities. Then he began crafting accessibility tubs for healthcare settings using all the experience, safety requirements and input from healthcare professionals. Rane not only listens to health care professionals on all levels, but has people in management today who have extensive background in the healthcare industry. This medical experience goes a long way in designing and creating commercial tubs that protect residents and patients from falls where slippery floors and weak bodies are a combination for heightened fall risk.

Health Care Accessibility Tubs Designed for Safety

Rane takes great pride in the spa-like look and feel of our commercial Tubs; but that is not our main objective.  Safety is always first in everything we do to prevent slips, trips and falls for residents. Every lovely line has a very important job with built-in features to prevent accidents while bathing. The Walk-in Doors allow residents with varying degrees of mobility to step or transfer into a comfortable slightly-reclined seat. The seating is not just flat, but contoured to fit human anatomy. The slightly-tilted seating allows the resident to lean back and relax while keeping them from slipping forward. Access to the tub removes one of the greatest fall risks of trying to raise legs up and over a tub. Learn more about many other safety features such as the anti-scald valve and double door lock.
