Hospital bed

Post by moomoo » August 13, 2017, 7:31 am

My father in law has just had a stroke, he is due to be discharged tuesday but is still in a bad way.

Is there anywhere in udon/ surrounding area that sells hospital beds either new or second hand?

Thanks

Moo

Opposite Mc Donald's in UD town on the Phosri Road, i think they sell them there. There's also a place called Forte on the ring road going towards Nadee but I've not been in there but it's near the T junction where you turn left to Nong Bua Lumphu or right to the airport not far from the big blue water building.

If you’re not successful in getting what you want at the places Vince has mentioned there is another place at the back of the Government Hospital.
There is also a factory/outlet about 15 kilometres outside of Udon on the way to Nong Kai. Head toward Nong Khai and it’s about 3 kilometres after Ban Nakha on the left. Not far from the big new court.

Ok thanks, the inlaws live way out in the sticks and we are visiting from chiang mai so not too familiar with the area. I will take a look on tuesday while we are in udon.

Cheers

From the kilo 5 ring road (airport) intersection, as you're heading SE on the ring road toward the KK intersection, in the vicinity of the large PEA headquarters, there's a brand new large store that has hospital type equipment. The building is on the same side as the PEA HQ but I'm not sure if it's a bit before or after.

The store I mentioned above is called Forte. It's on the ring road about 300m from the Kilo 5 (Nadee/Airport) 3-way intersection, same side as the big Electric company HQ. Although I didn't go in, their website offers a good idea of what's available. Hospital equipment and medicines are on sale. The store looks to be bigger than any of the other wholesalers I've seen in town.
If anyone has a chance to stop by, please followup with your impressions.

Tragic

A few things to consider etc

Ability to move the bed in the area that it will be in etc

Side rails that allow access to both sides of the patient.

Adjustable head as the patient will need to be sitting up , pneumonia is a killer for immobilised patients

Mattress needs to be firm, need a 2nd foot pillow to reduce pressure areas on the heels of the feet etc

Mattress needs a good quality cleaning surface , ( dont forget to buy cleaning products )

Probably need to buy a some nitrile gloves for body fluids and cleaning ??

If they have a patient Slide Board - get it, as its easier to move the patient, rather than inexperienced family members just dragging the patient and causing issues perhaps

I would also strongly advise a Pee Bottle -available from Somsak.

A cream to moisturise his heels,legs & elbows. Jergens Ultra is very good, get it in Tops.

Additionally a Zinc Oxide cream for his bum, as this will get very sore.

Forte is very, very good. We bought loads of medicines there, a thermometer and tick medicine for my dog. You can get just about everything you need here (and possibly a bit more) at very reasonable prices, I use an iodine spray on my dog and it was about half the price I pay in boots. Moomoo they have a few beds, I've taken some pics of the lower end one, trouble is they don't really put prices on anything, not even on plasters so you'll need to go take a look yourself because I can't be sure it's the price on the mattress.
