Patient Bathing Units
Definition : Equipment designed primarily for gentle bathing of patients who have compromised skin. These units typically consist of a bathing tube and a control console to regulate the bathing tube height, water temperature, automated filling and/or withdrawal of the water, and scalding protection; some units may include hydro massage capabilities. The units are usually configured to permit placing and removing the patient using patient lifts; the combination of the tube and the lift is sometimes called a bathing system. Patient bathing units are used mainly in patients who have burns or other chronic skin conditions; they are also used for patients at high risk of skin damage.
