Purchase of electric nursing beds

Ankauf elektrischer Pflegebetten




The steel beds currently being used and mattresses are 25 years old, possess no lifting mechanism and are inadequate for patients who are confined to bed. The majority of these patients are Holocaust survivors who are severely depressed as a result of their past and suffer even more due to the immobility in their beds. 70 beds were needed.

in German:
Die derzeit in Verwendung stehenden Stahlrohrbetten und Matratzen sind 25 Jahre alt, besitzen keine Hebeeinrichtung und sind für Patienten, die dauernd bettlägerig sind, ungeeignet. Bei diesen Patienten handelt es sich hauptsächlich um Holocaust-Überlebende, die aufgrund ihrer schrecklichen Vergangenheit an starken Depressionen leiden und daher zusätzlich durch die Unbeweglichkeit in den Betten leiden. Es werden zur Zeit 70 Betten benötigt.
