Abstract

This paper presents analysis from a 6-week prospective product evaluation of the Trezzo range of mattresses, compared to standard foam mattresses, in use on two clinical areas within Pennine Acute NHS Trust. Data were collected via distribution of three questionnaires. A patient experience questionnaire was completed by patients after using their mattress. This questionnaire elicited responses relating to patient comfort, temperature and sleep quality while using the mattress (and cushion if appropriate). The Trezzo mattress was found to be comparable to the standard NHS mattress in these domains. A staff clinical evaluation (patient) questionnaire was completed by nursing staff on behalf of patients in their care at patient admission and discharge. This questionnaire elicited responses relating to patient skin condition, and incidences of pressure ulceration. The Trezzo mattress was found to be comparable to the standard NHS mattress with respect to changes in patient skin condition during hospital stay. A second staff clinical evaluation (mattress) questionnaire was completed by nursing staff, in which the Trezzo mattress was compared against standard mattresses in the domains of aesthetics, ease of use, ergonomics and temperature control; patient moving and handling and mattress stability; and cleaning and sodium hypochlorite use. The Trezzo mattress scored substantively higher than the standard mattress on all of these domains; with differences being statistically significant in all cases.
