Hospital Overbed Lights Q & A


Are there options for hospital overbed lights that also coordinate with ceiling mounted lights in patient rooms, corridors and other rooms in the hospital or clinical area?

Many hospitals prefer a standardized lighting system throughout the facility. This is also true for nursing homes and long term care facilities where keeping all lighting fixtures uniform not only adds to the visual appeal but also helps keep repair and maintenance costs lower.

There are different companies that offer both hospital overbed lighting as well as corridor lighting. With similar types of features there is no need to have a huge variety of different bulbs and repair parts since all fixtures use the same options. Coordinating all lighting fixtures, particularly in patient rooms throughout the hospital, also means that patients that transfer from one unit to another or room to room will feel more comfortable since they will already be aware of how to operate the bed lights.

When comparing prices, what is important to look for in hospital overbed lighting compared to standard lighting and night lights?

The more types of light that one fixture provides, particularly in hospital overbed lights, the less cost will be involved. This is because there is no need to have multiple lights or multiple fixtures in the room, one fixture can do it all. Standard hospital lights may only provide direct light when on and no light at all if not on. Hospital overbed lights can be designed to provide direct light for working with the patient, indirect light for general lighting needs, night lights for soft lighting in the evening and reading lights for focused light for patients. 

If the main fixture does not provide all these lights then you would be required to provide a separate reading lamp or light as well as a night light. Doctors and nurses may also require additional overhead lighting to give enough light for examinations and patient treatment. All these additional fixtures would definitely add to the cost, plus there would be a greater chance that a much larger inventory of bulbs, replacement parts and fixture covers would be required to handle maintenance and repair of any damaged lights in the facility.

What is a general idea of the specifications of hospital overbed lighting that provides indirect, direct, reading lights and night lights all in the same fixture?

The specific types of light provided by the hospital overbed lighting will be determined by the manufacturer. In general for lights offering four different lighting option there will be different lumens or light units emitted depending on the direct or indirect lighting that is turned on or off at the time. Full light output can be as high as two bulbs of 5000 lumens and one bulb of 2000 lumens when direct or indirect lighting is required. The night light will have a much lower wattage, typically at 7 watts and the reading light will be 24 watts. This is enough light to read with or without the indirect lighting and with or without any supplemental room light.
