Each year, residents of long term care homes experience mild to serious injuries, including death, after becoming entrapped by rails on their beds or falling in their attempt to get over or around them. Overall, there is a desire to remove rails on all residents' beds unless there is good medical reason for them. The purpose of this course is to educate all staff and volunteers on bed rail safety. Material covered includes Ministry of Health Regulations, intended purpose of bed rails, the benefits and risks, the seven areas of entrapment, assessing the situation for use of bedrails, and staff responsibilities.
