Our services

Järven Health Care have been helping the Swedish care sector with mattresses and other healthcare products for over 45 years. During that time, we have built up unique knowledge and experience that we want to share with our customers.

We want to enable good conditions for healthcare through the exchange of knowledge and information. Something that ultimately benefits both staff and patient. We offer, among other things, webinars, visits, training and our appreciated information material – Mattress School.

We would like to hear from those who work in healthcare and you are very welcome to contact us.

MATTRESS
INVENTORY CHECK

MATTRESS INVENTORY CHECK

Most patients spend up to 90% of their care period in bed, so the mattress plays an important part in rehabilitation. A mattress is not just a surface to rest on but an important medical device.
In 2016-2018, a cross-county inspection was carried out in Sweden which included 2,046 beds. 36% of the mattresses had damaged surface layers, and on 28% of these there were also visible stains. As healthcare rules, routines and budget frameworks are comparable from county to county within Sweden, this report gave a clear indication of the extent of the mattress problem nationally.

WEBINARS

The Coronavirus pandemic has given us a new reality that we must adapt to, since daily work activities must continue regardless, not least for healthcare. Expressions such as "let’s meet on Teams" or "shall we have a Zoom meeting" are now heard daily and have become a natural part of our everyday lives. 

We offer a number of webinars where knowledgeable staff offer demonstrations and training in specific subjects. We have prepared a number of the most commonly requested webinars, but can also provide webinars tailored to your specific needs.

  • Mattresses and pressure ulcer prevention
  • PU sensor, the new device for pressure ulcer prevention
  • Routines for good mattress hygiene
  • Use of air pressure mattresses
  • Fire and evacuation in a care environment
  • Positioning

EVACUATION
TRAINING

EVACUATION TRAINING

The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, MSB, emphasises in its directives that all bedbound patients in Sweden must have the possibility for evacuation. Many hospitals and nursing homes still lack evacuation aids for those patients who have difficulty getting out in the event of fire or other danger. We are happy to visit your workplace to provide evacuation training.

We have provided evacuation training for almost 30 years and have a well-developed model for increasing safety and security.

MATTRESS SCHOOL

What should you actually consider when evaluating mattresses? What tests are there for pressure relief? How dangerous are mattresses in the event of a fire? There are many issues to consider when talking about mattresses in the healthcare sector. In the Mattress School, we clarify the concepts and provide in-depth knowledge about healthcare mattresses.

Our information material presents the knowledge and experience we have gathered over 45 years in a product-neutral manner. The material is divided into several different chapters:

  • Hygiene
  • Pressure relief
  • Fire safety
  • Environmental impact
  • Economic value
