What needs to be done before weighing a patient on a VersaCare® Bed?

Before weighing the patient, make sure of the following: 

  • All items on the list defined in the "Bed Setup" section are accounted for (see "Bed Setup" on page 34 of the VersaCare instruction manual)
  • No drainage bags or equipment has been added
  • The patient is lying still and is centered on the mattress

To Activate - press the Weigh control.

On release of the Weigh control, the bed gets the current patient weight. If the units are configured for both lb and kg, the weight will show lb for 10 seconds, kg for 5 seconds, and then repeats.
