Here’s why you should give Mattress Insider a call right now:

  • Save on shipping costs because your medical mattresses will be compressed and rolled for shipping which means they can go FedEX ground.  Other companies ship your mattresses uncompressed which means it has to go LTL ($) on a semi truck.
  • Almost any design available.   Looking for a gel memory foam mattress for your hospital beds?   Maybe you want a traditional foam hospital bed mattress.  You can order it.  The only mattress type we don’t offer are air mattress options. 
  • Order only what you need.  Need only 1 healthcare mattress?  Need 10,000?  You can order as many as you’d like.
  • Get them quickly.  Order today and you can get up to 1000 mattresses manufactured and delivered in 7-10 business days.  Need something faster?  Call us 888-488-1468.
  • Order any size or shape.  While the most common hospital bed dimensions take a 36″ x 80″ mattress, that’s not always the case.  You can order any size/shape you want.   Want a queen sized mattress for your hospital bed?  You can do that.
  • Medical mattress toppers also available.  Get a gel overlay for your hospital bed.  Latex and traditional memory foam toppers are also available.
  • Get accessories.  You can order medical mattress pads, hospital mattress covers, and sheets.

What size are Hospital Beds?

Our medical mattresses are specifically designed with medical establishments (hospitals, clinics, hospice facilities, etc.) in mind.

They can be made to fit any size hospital bed. The most standard hospital bed dimensions are 36” x 80”, but as mentioned, we can make ANY custom size needed.

We know mattresses.

Medical Mattresses by Mattress Insider 

  • Safe & non-toxic for patients and healthcare workers.  Your hospital bed mattresses will be made using Certi-Pur-US certified foams which don’t contain any of those nasty chemicals.

    What does that mean to you?  They’re made without ozone depleters, no ammonium poly-phosphate flame retardants, no mercury, lead, or other heavy metals, no formaldehyde, and have a low VOC.  It’s safer experience than purchasing mattresses produced with unknown materials (often from China).

  • Passes all federal flammabilty laws.  Every medical foam mattress needs to pass CFR 1633 and 1632 to be compliant.  
  • Hypoallergenic; due to the use of soy based high density foams and nylon covers.
  • Comfortable nylon hospital mattress covers which don’t crack or overheat (like vinyl does). 

Other benefits of Nylon covers:

    • Wipes clean, making them water and stain resistant.
    • Bed bug and dust mite resistant because they’re stitched tightly.
    • Softer feeling, making time spent in your hospital or clinic more comfortable

Frequently Asked Medical Bed Mattress Questions

Q: What is the best mattress for a hospital bed?
A: The best mattress for a hospital bed (also known as a therapeutic, geriatric, or medical mattress) is one that is both supportive and comfortable. Patients will be laying on them for extended times, and they need a mattress that has both support and comfort factored into the construction of the bed.

Q: I’ve heard about gel foam mattresses. Are they good for hospital beds?
A: Unfortunately, this isn’t a simple yes or no answer. In general, gel infused foams are designed to sleep 1-2 degrees cooler than typical memory foam. However, whether or not this is a “good” thing in mattresses for your hospital or clinic really depends on your unique situation. Please give us a call to learn more about the different kinds of gel pockets vs. gel beads in foam vs. gel infused foam.

Q: Can I use a regular mattress instead of a hospital mattress?
A: Generally speaking, a regular mattress should not be used for a hospital bed. Many home mattresses do not offer the same support and many can cause pressure on uncomfortable places in the body. In some cases, this can contribute to bed sores. Ouch! Additionally, hospital beds often need a cover that is easily cleanable and fluid proof.

Q: How much does a hospital mattress cost?
A: While mot hospital mattresses range from $500-$1000, we have many less expensive options. We can offer your procurement department or staff much less expensive options for mattresses, because we ship factory direct to you. Due to the volume of mattresses we ship each year, we also are able to pass along significant cost savings in shipping your mattresses to you.

Q: Are hospital mattresses Twin or Twin XL?
A: Hospital mattresses are usually 36” x 80”, which is 2” less in width than a twin or twin xl size. However, we can make them in any size, and even shapes other than a rectangle, if you need something custom.

Q: What size sheets are needed for a hospital mattress?
A: Most places would have you buy a twin xl sheet set, which is 38” x 80”, this size of sheets can end up being too large, resulting in a baggy effect on the mattress. This can also cause the sheets to bunch under your patient, which can also lead to bed sores. To alleviate this, we make your hospital mattress sheets in the exact size of a hospital mattress, which is 36” x 80”, and 6” deep. To see available sheet colors, please *click here*.

Q: How much weight does a hospital mattress support?
A: A standard 1.5 lb 6” polyurethane foam hospital mattress will support up to about 230lbs and are made for one person.

    Do you carry mattresses for bariatric hospital beds? There dimensions are 42 x 80 and hold 400 lbs or more. I’m very close to the 400 lb mark so I’d prefer a mattress that is rated for 450lbs or more. I’m also looking for something on the medium to soft range. The mattress that came with the bed is very flimsy & it feels like I am sleeping directly on the steel base. I have small fractures & arthritis throughout my back so it is not a good situation.

    1. Hi Jacqueline, We can help with bariatric hospital bed mattresses for sure. We have made them in the past to support over 500lbs., and can make them in the 42×80 size (or any size/shape0. Someone from our team will be reaching out to you via email, or if you would like to call us, we can be reached at (888) 488-1468. Thank you and we look forward to making your new mattress for you.

  2. I have a regular hospital bed. I am over 400lbs. and want a thicker mattress so I don’t feel like my mattress is being smooshed between the steel bars under me and to eliminate the sag in the center. Can you help?

    1. Hey Kim!

      For whatever reason, your comment went to our spam comments, but we found it and pulled it out. Hopefully you’ve already been in touch with one of our hospital mattress experts already. I will be sure someone reaches out to you within the next 24 hours though to be sure you’ve gotten the info/help you’re looking for, to offer a supportive mattress that helps eliminate any sag. Thank you!

  3. We nought our daughter a better mattress for her hospital bed and can be used for bed frames that foot and head can raise. But her sidewalls do not fit now . What options do u have or suggest

    1. Hey Carol!

      Thanks for your comment! I’ll have one of our hospital bed mattress experts reach out via email… feel free to call us as well at (888) 488-1468.

    1. Hi Rebecca,

      You’d probably need to ask Sleep Number if they could make a bed the size that would fit your frame. But we can make beds to fit any size frame. I’ll have one of our mattress experts reach out to you… alternatively, if you’d like to give us a call with the dimensions of your frame for your hospital bed, we can give you some options that would be good to consider.
