US guidance on avoidance of patient bed entrapment

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US FDA has issued a final guidance on designing hospital beds that will reduce the occurrence of potentially fatal patient entrapment. Over the last two decades, 413 patients have died and 120 have been injured after becoming trapped in their beds. Entrapment can occur when a portion of a patient's body becomes caught between parts of the bed, typically involving the bed's side-rail.
