The new FDA approved Guardian Rise Bassinet is now available to order! It has received great reviews from testing hospitals, staff and patients. Height-adjustability, pass-through drawers and durable KYDEX finish are just a few of the features provided on this Bassinet. Available in six standard colors. This bassinet is manufactured in Michigan, U.S.A. This bassinet has four height adjustment handles (patent pending), one in each corner, that can be used independently to raise or lower the Bassinet's surface height. Work surface heights set at an appropriate level for a specific caregiver can improve performance and the quality of patient care. Also, the concave curves of the base panel allow caregivers to stand close to the work surface and get close to the newborn.

Lower Height - Single Bassinet
This bassinet is also known as the Compact Bassinet. This bassinet was 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 lower height bassinet reduces strain on mom to reach for/with baby. Thus helping to possibly reduce fall risk of baby, and mom. Even with the lower bassinet rest assure that the tub has tub-tilt limiters in place to prevent tub flip-out caused by a toddler
sibling pulling up for a better view of their new baby brother/sister.
Standard Height - Twin Bassinet
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.
Infection Control-Prevention is Key
It all begins with the finish on the bassinet. Is there a wood finish? Laminate? Or thermofoil 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.”
