Buying a Hospital Bed Versus Renting

A person may require a hospital bed at home for a number of different reasons. Perhaps, you as a care giver have chosen not to place a family member or friend in a care facility, or your loved one may have returned home from surgery and will benefit from this type of bed. Whatever the reason, if you are considering replacing a current bed with a special hospital bed, you may be contemplating whether it is best to purchase a new hospital bed:

Or you can chose to rent a hospital bed in any of the categories above.

At Homepro Medical Supplies, we offer a range of high-quality hospital beds for sale and rent.

Although a seemingly less expensive option at the outset, renting a hospital bed can quickly become more expensive if the rental period is extended beyond a short period of time. For this reason and others, purchasing a hospital bed can be a better investment than renting. Some of the reasons include:

New Equipment and Warranties

New, out-of-the-box equipment carries fresh, full warranties. At Homepro Medical, we also offer white-glove assembly services ensuring that not only is the equipment new, but it is working perfectly.

Rental Cost is Higher Over Time

Both renting and buying a hospital bed is an expense. However, even if you only need a bed for a few months, you may spend more to rent versus purchasing to cover the period of time needed. The math will help in your decision as will the fact that many people who buy do off-set some of the expense if they decide to sell their used hospital bed. This turns buying a hospital bed into more of an investment versus expense.

Possible Limited Availability

It is possible that others are also looking at hospital beds for rent at the same company, or the selection may be limited. Therefore, your rental options may be limited as well. However, if you purchase a hospital bed, you evaluate your options and order the one with the features you need.

Rental Rules

When you rent a hospital bed, you must ensure that all the rules related to using the bed and returning it in the same condition are followed. When you purchase, however, the bed is yours to do with according to your particular preferences in terms of modifications and more.

Whether you are looking for an Invacare full electric hospital bed, Transfer Master bed, or some other model, we provide a wide range of options to meet your needs.

This type of bed is one of the best options available to those who need positioning options and help getting into, and out of bed, perhaps because of illness or injury. Semi electric hospital beds are typically used in an assisted living facility, or at home. They do not provide the same high level of functionality as a traditional full electric hospital bed, but they are a fraction of the cost and still provide the key features to provide a comfortable and supportive experience for patients.
