Desire a bassinet to be comforting, functional, and maneuverable with convenient storage for care supplies and personal effects?

IMS allows you to choose your configuration, style, and color, to meet your specific design and work flow requirements.
Compact “Shorter Height” Bassinet
Specially designed to assist with “rooming-in” and fall risk avoidance as well as the desire to have a non-clinical aesthetic, rather one that is more ‘spa’ or home-like in its appearance.
- Rooming-in: the practice, to varying degrees, of the newborn being with its mother for much of or for the entire duration of the hospital stay versus the more traditional practice of newborns being kept in the nursery.
- Fall risk avoidance: Pregnant women statistically show a higher fall risk percentage than even persons 70 years and older.
Twin siblings can share a bassinet safely because each has their own tub/mattress. Families love that they can also be photographed and moved around together; staff appreciates the convenience of moving them in one trip, by one nurse—a great benefit to your work flow and "must have” for any Labor and Delivery Department.
These baby bassinets offer the highest level of durability and a lightweight design. Constructed of stainless steel, these units are rust-resistant and easy to clean.
Infection Control-Prevention is Key
It all begins with the finish on the bassinet. Is there a wood finish? Laminate? Or thermofoiled finish? What is the best way to keep your finish germ free? In a recent inquiry to the Joint Commission about the cleanliness of worn finishes, they said,
“Joint Commission response as of 3/31/17: While the Joint Commission standards are not specific as to the finishes for furniture or equipment, organizations are required to utilize and maintain equipment and furnishing based on manufacturer’s instructions for use or an alternative equipment maintenance (AEM) program (specific to medical and utilities equipment). Additionally, the organization needs to consider evidence based guidelines as to the cleaning and disinfecting of the equipment, such as those found with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If the surfaces are not cleanable or are porous, they are no longer providing a cleanable surface that can be appropriately disinfected. Please refer to these guidelines or other reputable evidence based guidelines for further guidance. If you have additional questions, please visit the Standards Interpretation page on our website.”
Please take note of the following cleansers and if your finish is worn, you may want to reconsider the timeline on replacing furniture that is themofoiled coated. Call us! Below is a document from our Patient Care Furniture partner on the approved germical cleansers for our furniture. Some approved cleansers include:
- Wex-cide 128
- Cavicide & Cavi-Wipes
- Virex II 256, Dispatch Hospital Cleaner Disinfectant
- PDI Sani-Cloth® Plus Germicidal Wipes and PDI Super Sani-Cloth Germicidal Wipes
- Simple Green All Purpose Cleaner
- Cleaning residue left by cleaning agent may continue to degrade surfaces and shorten their life and/or affect their appearance. We recommend a final wipe down with a wet clean cloth to prevent this.
