PATIENT RESTRAINT ITEMS
What items are considered a restraint?
Here is a list of items that are considered a restraint and are not allowed in nursing homes of any kind:
- Hospital bed rails
- Wheelchair safety belts
- Wheelchair pommel cushions
- Hospital bed parameter mattresses, covers, or toppers
- Some hand rails
This may or may not be a complete list of items. Contact your care home for more information.
My family member is a fall-risk patient, and lives in a nursing home. Since rails are a restraint, what other options are available to me?
If your family member is falling out of bed, you have a few options available. The most common solution is to rent a Full-electric Low bed. The low beds have a bed height range of 9.5″-20″ from floor-to-frame which allows a caregiver to get the patient very low to the ground. The low bed in conjunction with a fall mat helps cushion a fall, possibly preventing serious injury.
Another option would be to install a hand rail. Some hand rails are still considered a restraint, but there are some hand rails such as the FREEDOM Grip® Bed Rail or the Halo Safety Ring which are allowed in nursing homes, and – more importantly – are not considered restraints. For some users, having a small handle attached to their bed lets them know where the edge of the bed is, which can sometimes prevent a fall.
