General Details

Caution

· Mesh may prevent suffocation if face is caught against the protector.
Due to being elastic, this protector is likely to move when pressure is placed against it.
· Bed rails are used to try and protect the bed occupant from injury. Careful consideration needs to be taken when choosing a bed rail or stick. 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.

The use of restraint affects a persons rights and dignity, and may remove or restrict their ability to move freely. Restraints can be an item of equipment or a management practice and should not be used as a substitute for supervision. In some cases, a restraint may increase a person's risk of physical harm.

Policies or practices of restraint in a residential care service should reflect any relevant legislation, codes of practice and professional standards. Legal advice on some issues may be appropriate.

Please ask the ILC staff or other care staff relevant to your situation for more information. They can advise on the use of least restrictive forms of restraint and/or alternatives to restraints.
