Don't know what your budget is but I've always liked the Hil-rom beds. They can now be connected to an intercom system so there's no humping down the hall in the middle of the night to find out Mr. Jones was wondering if anyone was around or what time it is. Also with these beds to reposition a patient you just push a button and the bed does it. The patient can also be moved to a sitting position for eating or reading, right in the bed itself, this is more like a chair than most of the beds currently used. They also take weight and keep track of weight loses/gains. Auto alarms, air mattress or gel settings, heat and cooling...there are many more features to these beds. I wish we had them where I currently work.
As for the bedpans, we supply each new resident with a disposable fracture pan. They can take them with when they discharge or we throw them. They are disposed of and replaced every week. But each resident has their own. They are plastic and rinse and wipe out quite easily, and they are much more comfortable than the traditional bed pans.
Good luck on the remodel.
