WARNINGS & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
Ì
General CAUTIONS
DO NOT use this product without first reading and understanding the instructions
contained in this booklet. If you are unable to understand the Warnings, Cautions or
Instructions, contact a healthcare professional, durable medical equipment dealer or
technical personnel, or contact Medline at
1-800- Medline before use - otherwise serious bodily injury or product damage may occur.
Read ALL general guidelines, warnings and cautions before performing any repair /
maintenance on the bed. All repair and maintenance on the bed should be performed by
a qualified technician. After any adjustments, repair or service and BEFORE use, make
sure all attaching hardware is tightened securely.
Inspect all parts for shipping damage before assembly and use. In case of damage, do
not use. Contact your shipping carrier immediately for instructions. For any nonshipping issues, contact your Medline Dealer for further instructions.
Do not use near explosive gases. Possible fire hazard when used with oxygen
administering equipment other than nasal or masked type.
Use ONLY mask or nasal type oxygen administering equipment around the bed. The use
of any other type of oxygen administering equipment can result in a fire hazard.
When using nasal or masked type administering equipment, oxygen or air tubing must be
routed and secured properly to ensure that tubing does not become entangled and
eventually severed during normal operation of the bed.
When using liquids in or around the bed, caution should be taken to ensure that liquids of
any kind are not spilled. If a liquid is spilled in or around the electric bed, unplug the bed
immediately before cleaning. Clean up the spill and let the bed or area around it dry
thoroughly before using the electric controls again.
Close supervision is necessary when this product is used by or near children or
physically challenged individuals.
NEVER PERMIT ANYONE TO BE UNDER THE BED OR IN BETWEEN THE RAISED BED
FRAME COMPONENTS AT ANY TIME.
Never permit more than one person on/in the bed at any time.
7
WARNINGS & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
Ì
General CAUTIONS
Keep the bed a minimum of 12 inches away from any direct heat source.
When the bed is not going to be used for an extended period, UNPLUG electric bed from
the wall outlet.
DO NOT unplug the power cord from the junction box.
The bed is not designed to be used as a patient transport. When transporting a patient,
use an approved patient transport, otherwise injury or damage may result.
When operating or moving the bed, always ensure that the individual in the bed is
properly positioned within the bed. DO NOT allow extremities to extend beyond the sides
or between the bed rails when performing these functions.
After assembly, test to make sure that all sections are properly and securely in place and
operate correctly BEFORE use.
Ensure that the head and foot spring sections are securely locked to each other and to
the head and foot-boards BEFORE use.
Ensure that the pendant and power cords are routed and secured properly so the cords
do not become entangled, pinched and/or severed during operation of the electric bed.
NEVER operate the bed if these cords are damaged.
Keep all moving parts and all drive shafts free of obstructions during operation of the
bed. (i.e. blankets/sheets, heating blankets/pads, tubing, wiring, etc. and other types of
products using electric cords which may get tangled around the bed, legs or optional
side rails).
Ensure the bed caster locks are properly engaged to prevent casters from moving
whenever the bed is stationary. ALWAYS lock the caster locks when transferring into or
out of the bed. Inspect the caster locks BEFORE using the bed to ensure the locks
function adequately. Even with casters properly locked, some floor surfaces will allow
the bed to move under some conditions. Use of the bed on such floor surfaces must be
evaluated by the care provider.
If any part of the bed is not working properly, call a qualified technician to examine and
repair it.
8
WARNINGS & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
Ì
General CAUTIONS
Improper use of some bed accessories (patient restraints, side rails, trapeze devices, etc.)
can cause patient injury or death. Consult your health care professional or the accessory
manufacturer for proper use instructions.
If using optional bed side rails and bed extension kit, check to ensure they are properly
and securely in place BEFORE using the bed.
Ensure the mattress is centered on the frame. This will minimize the risk of the occupant
becoming trapped between the mattress and the bed rail.
Individuals that cannot prevent themselves from rolling/climbing out of the bed may
require alternative safe means of restraint.
Replacement mattresses and bed rails with dimensions different than the original
equipment supplied or approved by Medline may not be interchangeable. Variations in
bed side rail design and thickness, size or density of the mattress could cause
entrapment. Use ONLY authorized Medline replacement parts.
For semi-electric and full electric beds, always remove the manual crank before
performing electronic functions. If left in place, the crank will turn when the motor is on
and could cause personal injury or damage to the bed.
When disassembling the bed, make sure all parts are in the lowest position.
!
Ì
Electrical CAUTIONS
Never operate the bed if it has a damaged cord or plug. If it is not working properly call a
qualified electrician.
The beds are equipped with three-prong (grounding) plugs for protection against
possible shock hazards. Connect only to a three-prong outlet. Do not defeat the
grounding safety feature by using a three-prong to two-prong adapter. If necessary, have
outlet ground reliability checked by a qualified electrician.
Never plug into an outlet that is greater than 120 Volts AC.
Keep all cords away from heated or hot surfaces.
Ensure all cables and cords are routed in a way such that they will not become entangled
or pinched.
9
WARNINGS & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
Ì
Electrical CAUTIONS
Do not open assemblies such as the motors, hand control unit, junction boxes or
electrical control boxes. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Only trained service
personnel are qualified to repair these parts. If uncertified individuals perform any work
on these beds, the warranty is voided.
Do not use parts, accessories, or adapters other than those authorized by Medline.
Unplug the power cord BEFORE performing any maintenance on the bed.
After installing any connectors into the junction box, be sure the cable plug is secure
otherwise injury or damage may occur.
DO NOT force connectors into the junction box otherwise injury or damage may occur.
DO NOT unplug the power cord from the junction box.
DO NOT operate the bed unless the ground wire is attached to frame.
!
Ì
Weight Limitations
The TOTAL weight limit of the Medline Home Care Bed (including accessories, mattress,
occupant and any other object positioned on the bed) is 450 lbs for full or semi electric
beds, and 500 lbs for manual bed.
Never permit more than one person on/in the bed at any time.
Replacement mattresses and bed rails with dimensions different than the original
equipment supplied or approved by Medline may not be interchangeable. Variations in
bed side rail design, and thickness, size or density of the mattress could cause
entrapment. Use ONLY authorized Medline replacement parts.
Body weight should be evenly distributed over the surface of the bed. Do not lay, sit or

Manual or Semi-Electric Bed: Turn the center Hi-Lo crank counterclockwise. The lowest end of the
bed will soon stop moving downward, but the higher end of the bed will continue moving down. When
both ends of the bed are at their lowest, your bed is level.
BED OPERATION
Manual Beds: The manual bed features three easy turning cranks for adjusting the bed. The left hand
crank adjusts the head section, the right hand crank adjusts the foot section, and the center crank raises
and lowers the entire bed (Hi-Lo). Turning the crank clockwise will cause each bed function to raise.
Turning the crank counterclockwise will cause each bed function to lower.
Figure 16: Semi-electric bed: Hi-Lo hand crank shown
Manual bed: has 3 individual hand cranks
(not pictured)
Caution: After using any hand crank, be sure to push the handle back so that it fits under the
bed and is not sticking out. Leaving the handle out could result in passers by accidentally
tripping on the handle.
Emergency Crank
Semi-electric and full electric beds are equipped with an emergency crank that allows manual bed
adjustment in the event of a power failure. The emergency crank is stored in the links of the spring deck.
If you did not receive the crank, contact your dealer. Do not leave the emergency crank in place after

BED OPERATION
A Word About Optional Bed Rails
Optional bed rails are sold separately and come with an instruction sheet. Do not install the bed
rails until you have read and understand all instructions. Variations in bed side rail design and
thickness, size or density of the mattress could cause entrapment. Use ONLY authorized
Medline products. Improper use of some bed accessories such as bed rails can cause patient
injury or death.
BED MAINTENANCE
Recommended Maintenance of Medline Homecare Beds
The following maintenance practices are recommended for Medline beds. For any questions,
please call Medline Bed Technical Support at 1-800-289-9793. Press 1 and then press 3

Cleaning the Bed
Follow these steps for keeping your Medline bed in clean condition:
1. Unplug the full or semi-electric bed before cleaning.
2. Medline beds should not be washed down with a pressure washers or steam cleaner. Doing so
can result in problems with the electrical system.
3. Inspect bed components for any exposed metal. To prevent rusting, Medline recommends
covering exposed metal areas with touch-up paint. Contact Medline Bed Technical Support for
paint.
4. Electrical components (motor, junction box, and pendant which are rated as IP66), frame and
head board/foot boards are washable with standard water pressure.
5. The headboard and footboard should be disconnected from the frame before cleaning. When
cleaning the headboard and footboard, stand them in an upright position, and use a mild
detergent and soft cloth. Gently scrub all exterior surfaces. The headboard and footboard can be
rinsed thoroughly with warm water. Do not exceed a water temperature of 110 degrees F.
6. Thoroughly dry all bed parts and components.
7. Disassemble the headspring and footspring assemblies before washing. When cleaning
headspring and foot spring assemblies, stand the assemblies on edge and wash with a mild
detergent. Using a soft sponge or brush, scrub all exterior surfaces. Rinse thoroughly, then
completely towel dry all components.
8. To disinfect the bed, wipe down all surfaces of the bed with a disinfectant and allow to dry
completely.
