Tips for buying Bed Head System

    • 1-3 oxygen outlets, depending on patient care area 
    • 1-3 vacuum outlets, depending on patient care area 
    • Up to three medical compressed air outlets, depending on patient care area 
    • Vacuum collection bottle/canister mounts 
    • A physiologic monitor bracket with provision for a monitor connector 
    • Provisions for a nurse call system, code button, examination light, and telephone jack
  4. If the system includes circuit-breaker panels, they should be easily accessible and clearly labeled. The main circuit breaker should be distinguished from branch circuit breakers; doors to the panels should not be lockable.
  5. Cleaning solvents and other fluids are commonly found in the hospital and near patients, and the exposed surfaces of headwall systems and service columns should resist staining and degradation by these materials.

  7. To provide proper flow to the outlets, copper medical gas and vacuum piping is preferred; however, flexible hoses of the appropriate size may be used.
  8. The nurse call system is usually supplied by the hospital and installed separately.
  9. Medical gas outlets are usually specified to match the hospital's general system and equipment connections.
  10. Sometimes it is possible to order customized large, uniquely dimensioned full wall units. Some suppliers do not even sell a fixed product line of distinct models, but rather produce custom-made units. To fit the buyer's needs, most companies will also customize catalog units.
  11. When determining the location and mounting of all external devices, facilities should consider minimizing the potential for patient or staff injury as well as the possibility of physical damage to the devices and fixtures.
  12. Facilities need to ensure that the fixtures can support the intended loads.
  13. A mounting bracket should first be affixed to a load-bearing portion of the wall during the installation of a typical prefabricated headwall.
