Soft Bed Belt



Item # 422

The Soft Bed Belt has a soft padded section that is placed across the patientís waist. The webbing on the left of the padding should be put behind the patientís back, and be threaded through the webbing loop sewn onto the right side webbing. The webbing on the right should also go behind the patientís back and threaded through the webbing loop sewn onto the left side webbing. Make sure the webbing is flat against the patientís back, so when they lie down the webbing will not cause a pressure problem.

When the patient is lying down in bed, put the male buckles down between the base of the bed and the bed rail, on both sides of the bed. Slide the Ďfemaleí parts of the buckles down the webbing so they are just above the side rails. Wrap the webbing around the rails a few times, to keep the patient in the middle of the bed. Do the buckles up, adjusting the webbing belt to size. It is not necessary to do the belt up too tight, so double check to see if it is comfortable, ensuring that the patient cannot put their hands or arms under the belt. When positioning a patient on their side, or after turning, you may lengthen the webbing to ensure the belt is not too tight.

If the patient slides up or down the bed, or if they sit up and put their legs over the side of the bed, the belt will automatically gently tighten around them to prevent them from moving too far. When attending to the patient during the night, test that the belt is still comfortable around the patient. On request, padded Leg Straps can be added as an extra security to prevent the belt moving up the patientís body. Have the bed rails raised when using this item.

WARNING - Bed Safety is very important and continual monitoring is needed to ensure the correct item is being used. If there is a change in the patientís behaviour it may be necessary to use an alternative product. Contact us on FreeCall 1800 645 577 or FreeFax 1800 641 477 to discuss other ĎBed Safetyí items we make.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

Washing: Hand or machine wash only, up to 80įC. Do not tumble dry or wring - air dry only.

This item may be of interest if you are wondering how to stop patients falling out of bed.

RESTRAINTS & SAFETY ITEMS

Restraints are a prescribed item. Care Facilities such as Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Aged Care Facilities etc., may order this item. For private sales to a family member, written authorisation is needed from a qualified therapist or medical doctor, approving the use of the correct Restraint for the patientís current condition. Remember if the patientís condition changes, then a different type of Restraint may be required. It is necessary to ensure the family are aware of the proper use of Restraints, as these can be dangerous if not used correctly.

Items such as the Bed Side Wedges, Bed Side Bumpers and Bed Rail Protectors are a Ďperimeterí type of Restraint that provides a barrier to reduce patientís movement without using a Restraint Belt. These items still need authorisation from a qualified therapist or medical doctor.

The Stand-Up Alarms, Bed Fall Mats, etc., are not Restraints as they do not restrict the patientís movement and therefore it is not necessary to have written authorisation, although we strongly suggest that the use of these Safety Items should be discussed with a qualified person.

Hip Protectors can sometimes reduce the need for a Restraint, as the patient can still walk, but with some protection over their hips, so if they fall, the Greater Trochanter may not be broken. If the Greater Tronchanter is damaged in a fall, the patient may then need a wheelchair, hoist transfers and additional care until they have a hip replacement operation. Authorisation is not necessary, but we still recommend discussing these with a medically qualified person.
