The second source of significant information comes from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA issued a Safety Alert in August of 1995 regarding the entrapment hazards and safety concerns which accompany the use of bed side rails. The Safety Alert was communicated to hospital administrators, hospital associations, nursing homes, risk managers, bio-medical/clinical engineers, and directors of nursing. The Alert was not specific to any one manufacturer or particular design of side rail but warned health care providers that the FDA had received 102 reports of head and body entrapment incidents involving side rails between 1990 and 1995. The 102 reports of entrapment resulted in 68 deaths, 22 injuries, and 12 entrapments without injury. These unfortunate events occurred in hospitals, nursing homes, and private homes. The majority of the entrapments involved elderly patients.
Murphy beds or the wall beds are another option available. Here the bed is stored against the wall and can be folded out for use when needed. The wall beds come in high quality and designs to match your home decor that it might be difficult to tell there is a bed. These are ideal for a small apartment or as guest beds to be used in your den or study. There are varieties available where the bed is stored inside a closet with doors. You also have the Fu chest futon bed another option for hidden beds. They look like attractive chest of drawers when not in use. The mattress is stored within this designed faux chest of drawers. The trundle bed is another convenient and good option for a space saving bed. It is basically an extra bed that can be stored under the regular bed. When needed it can be rolled out from under the main bed. It is a great option to have for kids sleepover parties. There are variations available. The basic one is a low frame and there are others available that can rise up to the height of the main bed. It is usually advisable to buy the trundle bed as a set, a pair designed to fit and work together.
Divans are very common and are less expensive than other types of bed. They are made from wooden covered with material and the mattress sits on top. Many divans come with built in drawers which provide plenty of storage space. Sofa beds are sofas which can convert into beds when required. They are great for spare rooms as they can be kept as a sofa and then pulled down into a bed if you have guests. Adjustable beds are perfect for people who need to be able to change the height of the bed and the angle in order to relieve a bad back. They are also used for people who are bed bound as they can be raised in order for eating or watching TV. Hospital beds are adjustable beds but they can be purchased in more stylish designs for use in the home.
"Most hotel chains don‘t keep track because the number is so insignificant," said Joe McInerney of the American Hotel & Lodging Association said at the 2006 International Bed Bug Symposium when asked about the growing number of bed bug complaints in the hospitality industry. He noted that there are more than 4.4 million hotel rooms in the U.S., adding "you could count the number of cases per day on one or two hands." Yet according to a 2004 survey of pest control professionals by Pest Control Technology magazine, hotels and motels were the most common sites of bed bug infestations, accounting for more than one-third of bed bug complaints. In a recent survey, one company reported that 24% of their 700 client hotels required bed bug treatments between 2002 and 2006. Brooke Ferencsik, spokesman for popular hotel review site TripAdvisor.com told USA Today, "We get a steady stream of bed bug reports and have hundreds of reviews" mentioning them. "Even if travelers aren‘t experiencing [bed bugs], they‘re becoming more aware and are looking out for them."
