What Healthcare Professionals Say About Stealth

Clinical
I could use this on my unit (Pediatrics) because there is no real way to know when a child is getting up before they are out of a crib or bed. You may not know it but kids fall off the bed often and those beds are high off the floor.
Nursing
Depending on the patient, we spend about 1½ hours a day per bed adjusting, readjusting, changing out and cleaning pads. Every day! If we could save just an hour a week per bed that would be 20 hours… time we could focus more on the patient and less on the equipment.
Nurse Supervisor
If I only need to order every 12-18 months, that will save me a ton in man hours. I will not be short of pads at any given time
Supply
Above-mattress pads are a hassle because we have to store a lot of them, and more on the unit. This takes up space and takes up man hours to deliver them to the units. Under-mattress pads can be folded & stored much more efficiently.
Clinical
We use under-mattress pads in our oncology wing. Many of our patients have very fragile skin. Above-mattress pads have proved challenging to use with these patients.
Nurse
Above-mattress pads are a real headache because during the day, as the patient moves around in the bed, the pad will bunch up and have to be frequently re-positioned to prevent false alarms. That means we have to waste time repeatedly checking the pads throughout the day.
