Residents are often injured when they get trapped or tangled in their bedrails. A bedrail can trap their neck or cheek against their bed so they cannot breathe or call for help.
Bedrail injuries at nursing homes
Since the elderly are at the highest risk for bedrail injuries, these injuries occur most often in nursing homes. In the past, nursing homes have been cited by state and federal regulators for failing to protect residents against bedrail injuries. Federal law now requires more stringent safety requirements for bedrails.
