Bed Safety and Entrapment Compliance
May 14, 2018
As a service for long term care facilities, we are now testing and validating healthcare beds for the side rail safety and entrapment free certification.
In 2006 the Hospital Bed Safety Workgroup (HBSW) issued a document entitled, “Bed System Entrapment Dimensional and Assessment Guidelines”. These guidelines have been published to both aid in the design of new bed systems and to assess entrapment risks associated with hospital bed systems.
We utilize the B4000 Bed System Measurement Device, which is the only validated tool that tests to the FDA’s Hospital Bed System Dimensional and Assessment Guide document.
