2 Safety
DANGER
Risk of Injury or Death
Bed accessories designed by other manufacturers have NOT been tested
by Invacare. Use of NON-Invacare bed accessories may result in injury or
death.
- Use ONLY Invacare rails, mattresses, bed extenders and other
accessories with Invacare bed products.
.
WARNING
Risk of Injury or Damage
Improper use of this product may cause injury or damage.
- If you are unable to understand the warnings, cautions or instructions, contact a
healthcare professional, dealer or technical personnel before attempting to use this
equipment.
- Do not use this product or any available optional equipment without first completely
reading and understanding these instructions and any additional instructional material
such as user manuals, service manuals or instruction sheets supplied with this product or
optional equipment.
Proper patient assessment and monitoring, and proper maintenance and use of
equipment is required to reduce the risk of entrapment. Variations in bed rail
dimensions, and mattress thickness, size or density could increase the risk of
entrapment
-Visit the FDA wesbite at http://www.fda.gov to learn about the risks of entrapment.
Review “A Guide to Bed Safety”, published by the Hospital Bed Safety Workgroup,
located at www.invacare.com. Use the link located under each bed rail product entry to
access this bed’s safety guide.
To avoid injury or damage due to incorrect installation of the bed rails:
- Unless the bed rail is in the lowest position, ensure that the plunger pins fully protrude
through the adjustment hole of each bed rail tube. This ensures that the bed rail is
securely locked in position. (The lowest position for the bed rail occurs when the bed
rail rests against the bed rail stop. Spring loaded pins do not engage into an adjustment
hole when the bed rail in the lowest position.)
- Install bed rails fully extended on bed. DO NOT use full length bed rails as half rails.
- After any adjustments, repair or service and before use, make sure all attaching
hardware is tightened securely.
