How To Order

It’s 9:00 am on a Monday morning and you are greeted by your local compliance surveyor. What’s your response? Are you panicked and worried? Or are you ready?

Understanding the complexities of a compliance survey can seem like hitting an ever-moving target. Broda has prepared an accreditation compliance Survey Readiness Packet that provides the tips and tools needed to prepare you and your team for any compliance survey. With valuable resources, guides and explanations, you will be able to provide clean, detailed explanations of need and justify the use of Broda’s chairs or wheelchairs in your facility.

The use of Durable Medical Equipment plays a big part in meeting the needs of your patients. Choosing the equipment that best meets the needs of your patients can be challenging. Identifying medical necessity, completing your assessment, ordering evaluations and obtaining physician’s orders are just a few of the steps required when choosing the appropriate equipment.

Broda is here to help and we have made it our mission to provide tools and resources that aid you in selecting the best chair for your patients. With tools on the Education Section of our website, Anatomical Assessment Forms and Decision Tree, you and your team will be prepared for your next Survey.

1. Broda’s Accreditation Compliance Survey Readiness Guide provides all the new tools and resources we have created with you in mind.

2. Anatomical Assessment Forms (Standard and Bariatric) aids in completing the patient assessment ensuring the chair meets the patient’s individualized needs.

"We were at a loss with one of our residents who has frontal lobe dementia. He had trunk lean, stopped feeding himself and appeared to be in pain. We attempted to address the pain; however, any medication we used caused him to have increased behaviors. Since using Broda's Synthesis Tilt Recliner, he has been feeding himself, he smiles and laughs like he used to and is showing no signs of pain anymore. Thank you for producing a great product that brings the quality of life back to our residents!"

"Prior to the Broda chair [Synthesis Tilt Recliner], we had tried numerous positioning devices for the resident, which were ineffective. She had a tendency to lean forward and to one side. Once using the Broda chair [Synthesis Tilt Recliner], the resident's posture immediately improved. She, herself, was very thankful because she was "so comfortable". The staff couldn't believe the result. Besides this resident sitting in proper alignment, she could still self-propel with her feet."

"Prior to using Broda's Elite Tilt Recliner, there were issues with safety for getting the resident out of the chair, safety for staff lifting her in, either manual/mechanical; comfort, keeping her in the chair, inability to get her body over the sides.

The chair sides raise to prevent her from throwing her legs/body over the sides; same with the extra padding along her leg area that is raised. The tilt puts her buttock in a comfortable position, but also makes it extremely difficult to push out. The chair sides also swing out to assist with ease of the mechanical tilt.

Broda's chair has given her a reason to want to get up and she enjoys her chair now. When we are using the mechanical lift she remains calm because she wants to get in it and will stay longer safely and comfortably! Staff can safely lift and position her without worrying about injuring themselves."

"Our gliders [Tranquille Auto-Locking Gliders] are always disappearing out of our common areas and end up in our patients' rooms We don't know how they get there, but they love them and prefer sitting in them more than anything else. One patient with a back injury told us this was the only chair he could sit comfortably in. He wanted to take it home with him after his rehabilitation was complete."

Josiah D., Facility Administrator |Pocatello, ID

"Broda chairs and wheelchairs make it easier for caregivers to provide optimal care with less stress on the client and the caregiver. For example, easier transfers, easier re-positioning, less maintenance, and easier mobility."
