General Details

Caution: Bed Rails / Bed Sticks

Careful consideration needs to be taken when choosing a bed rail or stick. Incorrect positioning of the bedrail can lead to injury or death. They may increase the risk of injury to the occupant in several ways. Entrapment of limbs or body parts may occur within the rails, or between the rails and the bed. This may occur to those having a seizure, or rolling over in bed, or if unstable while transferring out of bed.
Bed rails can cause some occupants to become anxious while in bed. They may try to climb over the rails, particularly if the occupant has a condition such as dementia.
May not be suitable for a person who has ; a cognitive impairment with or without reduced mobility; reduced alertness and/or disorientation; a history of falls from bed.
It is recommended to check regularly that the bed stick is always positioned as close to the mattress edge as possible.
It should not be used in circumstances where there is a gap between the bed stick and the mattress, or potential gap if the device or mattress moves due to possible risk of entrapment.
A risk assessment is recommended prior to provision
