Pressure relieving mattresses, Burwood Hospital

Response to official information request


  • Could you tell me how many beds at Burwood Hospital have pressure relieving mattresses and in which areas e.g. geriatrics, rehab etc?
  • If the hospital has moved to pressure relieving mattresses across the board (or in specific areas); could you tell me when this change took place? And what this looks like?


I understand that Burwood Hospital recently (in the last 12 months) purchased pressure relieving (higher-specification) foam mattresses for patient beds. Please could you tell me:

  • How many inpatient beds; and,
  • For which wards, i.e. geriatrics, geriatrics or rehab,
  • When were these mattresses put in place?
  • What is the current operating capacity of the hospital re: inpatient beds?
