  • 3.) What is the diffference between a standard hospital bed and luxury hospital bed? | Back to Top | Back to BMS Blog

    A luxury hospital bed has all of the functionality of a standard full electric hospital bed but comes standard with an upgraded 10″ foam innerspring mattress. By comparison, standard full or semi electric hospital beds come with 7″ innerspring or foam mattress. Luxury beds are also distinguished from standard hospital beds by the base unit the upgraded mattress rests upon. Standard hospital bed frames are metallic and have to be assembled in two pieces. Luxury bed base units are one piece and padded.
