Warning: When Bed Rails are used, it is possible for people to be entrapped between the edge of the mattress and the Bed Rail. This may also happen if a Bed Rail Protector is being used. Entrapment can lead to death, so it is very important to do a risk assessment for the patient and regularly check that they do not manoeuvre themselves into a dangerous position.
