Buy Or Rent A Hospital Bed In Houston?



Here at Complete Medical Supply, we provide our customers with quality hospital beds for home-care use. These hospital beds come in either a semi-electric or full-electric option with your choice of half length or full length bed rails and a standard spring mattress.


We have the ability to provide you with a brand new hospital bed or a used rental hospital bed for your long-term or temporary use.



1. Should I Buy Or Rent A Hospital Bed?


This common question solely depends on your personal situation. It all comes down to needing the bed for temporary or long-term use. Most people need a hospital bed after a recent surgery and after coming back home.


Hospital beds provide users with the ability to adjust the head, leg and height portion of the entire bed similar to a regular adjustable bed. The rails on the bed keep users safely inside the bed and prevent users from falling out. They also provide good support for getting in and out of the bed.


If you are unsure of your situation and don't know how long you will need the hospital bed for then renting the bed may be a better option. Check out our rentals page for more information on the cost of the hospital bed rental.


If you may need the hospital bed for more than 3 or 4 months then it may be a better option to buy a hospital bed since your rental cost over that period may come close to the purchase price of a new bed.



2. What is the Difference Between a Semi Electric and Full Electric Hospital Bed?


The main difference is that a “full electric” hospital bed is motorized to control the height of the entire bed and a “semi electric” hospital bed has a crank to raise and lower the entire bed. 


Both semi electric and full electric hospital beds have a remote to raise and lower the headrest and footrest.
