You can’t always take your comfortable Wolf mattress everywhere, though our RV mattresses certainly go more places than most! We’re talking about those prolonged hospital stays. We’re here to help provide you with a great night’s sleep, even if our mattresses and futons can’t be there for you.
If you’ve ever had a prolonged stay in a hospital, then you already likely know about the nightly interruptions that can make falling asleep more a dream than reality. We’re talking about the noise, the nightly checkups, and the medicine calls.
There is hope! A recent study by Vineet Arora, a professor of medicine at the University of Chicago Illinois discovered that through communication patients not in critical care were able to have better rest as nurses skipped nighttime vital sign checks or medication doses. Instead, nurses were able to time (in clinically stable and not in critical condition patients) the medications around the patient’s sleep schedule.
With sleep so important for everyone, communication and sharing more stories like this are key to making a change and allowing patients to receive the nightly rest they deserve. Sweet dreams everyone! And if you’re staying in a hospital, don’t forget to pack your favorite Wolf pillow if you can!
