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.
If you‘re shopping for bunk beds, then most likely you‘re probably shopping with your children in mind. Most children just love bunk beds and will doubtless be more than thrilled to sleep in them. There are however many accidents involving children and bunk beds every year. If you are to buy your children a bunk bed, just be sure to have a word with them and stress there not to play or fight on them. It may also be wise to put the younger child on the lower bunk. A Murphy bed usually fits into a wall or cabinet, this makes them extremely helpful if you have a small room. When you‘re not using them, you simply store them away, which gives you much more room during the day. You will find that they are available in many different sizes. A futon bed can be folded up and also used as a sofa. They are easily affordable and very helpful if you are possibly accommodating a guest.
