About the Personal Belongings Case

Purpose

Used by hospitals, rehabilitation units, and long-term and personal care facilities to help prevent the loss and damage of hearing aids, dentures, eyeglasses, and other personal care items — decreasing facility costs and increasing patient satisfaction.

Benefits

Convenient and highly visible, the Personal Belongings Case allows easy access to personal care items for staff, patients, residents, and family members. It also provides staff accountability for the daily inventory of personal belongings.

Cost Savings

Replacement estimates: dentures, $500 – $900; specialist visits, $100 – $300; hearing aids, $2,000 – $4,000; eyeglasses, $200 – $500. Eliminate replacement costs, as well as those of staff accompaniment to out-of-facility appointments and transportation.

Design

The Personal Belongings Case is 12 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 3 inches high. It has curved hooks on the back that allow it to attach to beds of various sizes. The medical-grade case is stackable for the convenience of storage, and all compartments are separate to prevent cross-contamination. Each compartment lid is individually labeled in both English and Braille. An area in the front has been designed to hold a resident or patient identifier, used in hospitals and long-term care and personal care facilities.

What It Does

The Personal Belongings Case helps prevent personal items from being lost or broken. It provides a highly visible and easily accessible storage container for patient and resident belongings at nursing stations. Items aren’t lost, so there’s no need to spend thousands of dollars on replacements. Nursing hours can be spent more efficiently on patient and resident care — not wasted searching for lost items or making return trips for misplaced effects.
