Posted by Karyl Walker on Fri, Feb 28, 2020 @ 03:22 PM

As the year winds down, you’re probably seeking out a few traditional moments of peace. Whether it’s holiday gatherings with family or annual reflections on your professional accomplishments, setting worries aside is a universally healing experience.

Helping bring peace to residents and families

When a patient arrives at your treatment center, consider how powerful it can be to offer loved ones the peace of knowing your facility is safe. By ensuring safety, you’re reducing fear and anxiety for patients and their families, starting them on the path to healing.

Furniture that reduces patient self-harm

Furniture safety begins with ligature-resistant features—especially for moderate and high-risk populations. For example, our molded plastic lines of beds, desks, tables and chairs are continuous pieces with no opportunity for rope or cord attachment. The safety element of this ligature-resistant furniture decreases the risk that patients would be able to self-harm.Ligature resistant bedroom furniture

Extra attention has been paid to self-harm in the past year across the entire healthcare landscape. At the Joint Commission’s 2018 Hospital Executive Briefing in New York in September, Chief Medical Officer Ana Pujols McKee said that providers should accept nothing less than zero harm in their facilities. 

Style isn't sacrificed

Providers of all types must be mindful of safety. However, style and comfort doesn’t need to be overlooked.

The safety aspects of our molded plastic furniture and low-profile wood beds can be easily integrated with your center’s design thanks to the many style choices and colors that allow for a warm homelike feel.  Also available is our Tough Stuff! Safe Harbor line of wood ligature-resistant furniture with finish options that include modern choices such as black, honey brown and coffee. Our consultants can work closely with you to customize a dignified, welcoming treatment space that makes all the difference.

By choosing safe, durable products, your treatment center will provide patients and their loved ones some much-needed peace of mind in the new year.
