How Can Hospital Bed Design Impact Care?


There’s no doubt about it, patient care is a priority across the healthcare system. And while there are many aspects to patient care, there are some internal features in hospitals that are lacking: beds. We have the technology to improve the patient experience and patient outcomes through improving their beds, but not every hospital is up to speed.

How is one company changing the game, or the bed, to improve patient outcomes? On the latest episode of I Don’t Care with Kevin Stevenson, guest Shane Jones, Account Executive at Linet Americas, discusses Linet America’s foundational values, how a hospital bed can have an impact on patient care, and his own personal journey in learning more about Down syndrome.

As the number one largest healthcare bed manufacturer in the world, Linet Americas has exported over 1 million beds to over 120 countries. While they started as a start-up created by a biomedical engineer who just wanted to help his local community, they are growing rapidly, particularly in the U.S.

Jones noted the beds are, “…Also very effective in how we provide care. They’re designed for nurses, by nurses…and it all translates into better care and better outcomes at the end of the day in terms of safe-patient handling, fall-prevention, care, all those things that we’re all focused on.”

Stevenson and Jones discuss…

● How a hospital bed can be a tool for more effective patient care

● How patient data collection can be made easier through sensor-lined beds and the SafetyPort program

● The importance of raising awareness about Down syndrome and the journey of navigating that experience

“The World Down syndrome Day website had all these resources as well…But I think the main thing that I want to just get out to people is a few different things: One being just being very accepting and inclusive of others, being kind…just being educated…you can learn about Down syndrome, you know, what comes along with it…They’re normal kids at the end of the day, they just have an extra 21st chromosome,” said Jones.

Jones has nearly 10 years of experience in the healthcare industry. Prior to his role with Linet Americas, Jones worked as a Strategic Planner for UT Southwestern Medical Center and as a Data Analyst for Wise Health System. He is a graduate of Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science and holds his MHA from the UNT Health Science Center.
