HIGHLANDS, N.C. (March 2, 2015) – Highlands-Cashiers Hospital has received a generous contribution to purchase five state-of-the-art beds that improve the care for patients at the local hospital. The gift was made possible by the Tarver Family Foundation Charitable Trust.
The new beds are Hill-Rom Accumax Quantum beds with continuous care for safe skin. One feature includes built-in scales so that if a patient is unable to get out of their bed, staff can still assess their weight and provide appropriate medical care. In addition, the new beds provide uninterrupted pressure redistribution which helps prevent any breakdown of a patient’s skin.
