Bed Positioning and Safety

The Danger Zones

Patients are injured every day by getting caught, trapped, entangled, or strangled in hospital beds. The gaps between the mattress and side rails and the mattress and head/footboards are two of the greatest danger zones for entrapment injuries.

Frail or fragile patients also incur the risk of injuries from the hard edges of side rails and head/footboards that can lead to skin tears and bruising.

Bed Bolsters and Gap Stuffers help protect patients from these danger zones. Multiple options address patient-specific needs. Bacteriostatic and antimicrobial features add extra layers of protection.

Bed Safety Rails and Bed Transfer Handles help patients get in and out of bed easier for safer bed mobility and greater independence.
