Padded blocks of foam which are vinyl covered, designed to fit between the bed mattress and a bed rail. This aims to prevent the gaps where limbs or body parts may become trapped. These blocks have a zip at each end so more gap fillers can be connected. The vinyl is flame retardant and water resistant.

General Details

Caution

· 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.
These are designed to fill gaps between the bed rail and some body entrapment points.

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.
