Stargazer benefits for facilities/hospital versus a fold out
Time: In my experience what is often not measured is time. Stretchers take time to set up, pack away and store. They also do not provide the functionality of say the Stargazer where you also get a seat for the expectant non-birthing partner, family or friends to sit whilst in the room. If another seat is in place, this then has to be moved for the stretcher, again taking time and space and you have to find storage space.
Comfort: The Stargazer chair is designed to be comfortable for sitting and sleeping. It has a supportive backrest and armrests, which can make it more comfortable for patients who need to sit for long periods of time (birthing isn’t often fast).
It’s there: Stretchers can get lost or easily removed from a department, whereas a solution that is stationary like the Stargazer has a much greater level of use and conformity, as you know it is there and all staff know how to use it rather than, “where are the stretchers” or “we have no stretchers available”. The Stargazer can also be quickly packed up, when a family needs to leave or the “sleep” is over, than can be done by the user, rather than a fold out that often needs an HCA or nurse to relocate/put away.
Safety: The Stargazer chair is designed with safety in mind, specifically for hospital settings. It has a sturdy frame and a locking mechanism to keep it in place when it's in the bed position. This can help prevent accidents and injuries, especially important in a hospital, compared to some cost effective foldouts
Convenience: The Stargazer chair is convenient to use. It can be quickly and easily converted from a chair to a bed, which can be especially important in a hospital setting where time, particularly that of staff is of the essence.
Infection control: The Stargazer meets infection control requirements, the material is able to be wiped clean and is of hospital grade. If you go with a fold out stretcher you will want to ensure the mattress meets IC standard (many off the shelf solutions do not as the mattress is permeable to be able to fold). You may find that you need a custom stretcher to meet IC requirements, and then it is likely similar in cost to the Stargazer.
This chair can be used in any health environment or for home care and is designed to blend into the décor.
The chair can be used in any healthcare environment but is extremely useful when a someone has a life limiting or critical condition. It is vital that their loved ones can maximise the time they spend together, the Stargazer allows them to sit, rest or sleep close by in comfort and be there to meet their physical and psychological needs at all times.
