Hospitals move fast. It’s what enables caregivers to provide the best possible care to the most patients. Unfortunately, that speed comes with risks. When hospital personnel forget to disconnect cords before moving a patient’s bed, the result can be damaged cords, a compromised patient station, and a room that’s out of service, affecting the entire care process. At Curbell, we help keep your patient rooms operational and your hospital moving smoothly — and quickly — with our Breakaway Bed Cables.
- For use with Hill-Rom®, Stryker®, Carroll® (CHG®), Linet®, and ArjoHuntleigh® beds
- Available for most common nurse call systems
- Various lengths are available
- Each half of the breakaway cable can be purchased separately
- One year warranty
The pinless connectors on our breakaway cables have no pins to break.
ARE YOU CONSIDERING A MAGNETIC BREAKAWAY CABLE?
BREAKAWAY CABLES CAN HELP WITH THESE THREE THINGS:
If your facility has multiple types of nurse call systems or beds, moving beds from room to room can be a challenge.
Curbell’s breakaway cables give you a common connection in every room regardless of bed type or nurse call system. One section is permanently attached at the wall, and the other section is permanently attached to the bed. Use them throughout your facility, and you can freely move beds from room to room.
RECEPTACLE AND CABLE DAMAGE
Is this a common sight after a bed gets moved? It doesn’t need to be.
Aside from being a costly repair, a damaged wall receptacle or patient station can put a room out of service for days. By using a breakaway cable from Curbell, you minimize the chance of this type of damage happening. If the bed is moved without disconnecting the cable, the unique two-piece design safely breaks apart at a point away from the wall, reducing cable replacement and receptacle repair costs, and most importantly, minimizing patient risk.
UNUSED BED FEATURES
Are the advanced features of your beds going unused because it’s too much trouble to plug them in?
With a bed communication cable from Curbell Medical, a bed comes to life. It becomes a communication center, linking the patient to nurse call systems, televisions, and other room technologies — even delivering potentially life-saving data. Using a breakaway cable lets you use all the features of the bed while having a simple and quick way to disconnect the bed when it needs to be moved.
A replacement wall station is $450, and cables vary from $40 to $200, not counting labor. We needed a solution to avoid replacing them time after time. Installing the Breakaway Bed Cables was easy: just plug in and attach to the wall and bed. It was simple and reduced costs.
Beds move a lot, and if we had to deal with broken or missing cables, connecting them was a time-consuming process. As a result, often times nurses wouldn’t bother connecting beds, and many of their features would go unused. The breakaway cords, on the other hand, are very user-friendly. They make connecting beds self-explanatory and easy, which is helpful for our nurses who care for up to six patients at any given time. I would say nurses are 95% more likely to connect the breakaway cords.
Breakaway Bed Cables are faster to hook up by far. Conventional cords take twice as long. In an emergency situation, the bed can just break away without causing lasting damage. Plus, it works universally with any brand of hospital bed. You can even use it as an adaptor. Everyone benefits from the breakaway cables.
USING THE BREAKAWAY CABLE IS SIMPLE
Plug the wall end of the cable into the wall plate and tighten the thumbscrews.
Install the bracket to permanently mount the cable.
Plug the cable into the bed, tighten the thumbscrews, and screw the strain relief clamp into the bed to permanently mount the cable.
Connect the breakaway cable’s pinless connectors.
When moving the bed, disconnect the cables and place the dummy plug into the wall end of the cable.
