Side Rail Protection
Bed Rails are extremely important to any fall prevention program; however, hard metal and plastic surfaces can cause trauma injuries to restless, confused or agitated patients. Those with fragile skin are at an even higher risk. Bed Rail Pads are key to preventing such injuries.
Choosing the Right Bed Rail Pad
While the function of most bed rail pads is the same, the difference is in the design. AliMed offers a variety of options, each with unique benefits to meet the varying needs of your patients. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind.
Padding: Padding that covers the top and even the outer portion of the rail is best for agitated or ataxic patients.
Cleanability: Wipe-clean models are better for preventing cross-contamination.
Adaptability: Split-rail models allow for independent use of upper and lower bed rails.
Visualization: "Window" models work well with patients who become agitated or feel isolated when unable to see out of the bed, and these models improve visual monitoring for staff.
Entanglement: AliMed offers a number of solutions designed to reduce the risk of limb entanglement. See our Bed Gap Stuffers and Bed Bolster Wedges.
