As attorneys, many of us have consulted with clients and their families as a result of a fall from a hospital or nursing home bed. These falls result in fractured arms, legs, and hips, and often even more serious injuries such as skull fractures. The patient’s (or family’s) immediate reaction to these unfortunate injuries is to blame the hospital, nursing home, nursing staff, or attending physicians for the failure to have bed side rails raised and in place to prevent such falls. This typical reaction is based upon the assumption that bed rails, when properly used, will prevent the patient/resident from falling out of the bed and suffering injury. However, bed rails are not benign safety devices and this article will address the dangers created by their use.
A variation of the bunk bed is the loft bed, where there is a bed on top, but the lower area can be used for a variety of purposes. It is sometimes used as a storage space. It is common these days to find the empty space designed into a study with a table and storage cabinets. Sofa beds are a good option if you need to have a spare bed for occasional visitors. They are used as sofas or seating arrangement during the day and can be unfolded into a bed for the night. There are numerous designs available and one should choose based on comfort and ease of use. Traditionally the futons were thin mattresses that were and are still used in Japan. They are folded and stored away when not in use. Today they have been modified and used in the west to look similar to a sofa bed. They usually have a wooden or metal frame with a thin mattress which can be used as a sofa and unfolded to be used as a bed.
According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), bed bug infestations have been reported in all 50 states. Nearly unheard of since near eradication by DDT-based insecticides in the 1950s, bed bugs are back and in ever-increasing numbers. Bed bug reports increased by 71% from 2000 to 2005 according to the NPMA. Most pest control companies now field dozens of calls a week each week. "The last 12 months have been particularly active," said Cindy Mannes, NPMA director of public affairs. "They are showing up like never before in hotels, hospitals, college dormitories, and multifamily housing units as well as single-family homes."
There are a few different types of orthopedic dog beds, different fillings are used. Memory foam is made from durable, elastic foam and has the ability to form to the shape of the dog and mold itself to the dog‘s contours, then it restores to its original shape. You can also get gel-filled mattresses although the memory foam is better as it conforms to the body. Most orthopedic dog beds are constructed from a wooden frame with the memory foam mattress inserted. Orthopedic Dog Beds are lower to the ground which reduces the injuries sustained from jumping up and down from a bed or couch. Because the memory foam is light weight, the whole bed is reasonably easy to move around as it is not too heavy.
