Hospital Bed & Side Rails

Wednesday, December 28, 2005

I’ve been considering buying a hospital bed for my elderly father and I’ve been making a list of accessories to purchase. What would be the benefits of installing optional side rails on the bed?

There are several benefits to adding side rails to a hospital bed. In fact, in many cases, the addition of side rails becomes a necessity rather than merely accessorizing the hospital bed. To give you an idea, here are a few benefits that side rails provide:

Side rails provide people a stable place to hold on to while getting in and out of bed. • Side rails will prevent the person from rolling out of bed. • Side rails can allow a person in bed to assist with repositioning and turning themselves. • Side rails provide a place to fasten bed controls and other remotes that are within easy reach of the person in bed.

Hope that helps.
