Listed below are some terms you may come across, and what they mean, when looking for a hospital bed.
Hi low: Hi-Low hospital beds offer the ability to raise or lower the bed to make it easier for the patients to get in and out of bed, or to help transfer them onto the bed itself from another source of mobility solution.
Quarter rail/Half rail: A one‐piece rail that extends along the side of the bed one‐quarter or one-half the length of the bed from the head of the bed
NOTE: The divisional standard for bed rails is ½ rails unless otherwise indicated based on an individual resident assessment to prevent bed entrapment.
Bed entrapment: An occurrence involving a resident who is caught, trapped, or entangled in the hospital bed system, which includes the spaces in or around the bed rail, hospital bed mattress, or hospital bed frame. Entrapped body parts associated with risk for severe injury include the head, neck, and chest.
