Guideline

Summary

This guideline applies to use of slide-in bed rails/bed poles which are prescribed for the purpose of improving bed mobility and assisting in transfers into and out of the bed. It does not include fixed or integral devices that are designed to prevent the user from rolling out of the bed (See Section 4 Definitions). Hospital beds have integral side rails and profiling mattresses as a standard so the use of slide-in devices is generally not appropriate in these settings and may be contraindicated.
