It will be your choice of mattress which will ensure your comfort in bed but your style of bed can provide an eye-catching centerpiece. Many beds can be purchased with matching bedside drawers to provide an even bigger statement piece. Chests of drawers and wardrobes can also be bought to match, giving your bedroom that showhouse feel. There are bigger and bigger beds arriving on the market all the time and there are a variety to choose from, such as bedsteads, air beds, water beds, divans, sofa beds, adjustable beds or sprung base beds. Bedsteads are beds which are usually made with a wooden frame. The base of the bed has wooden slats on which sits the mattress. Some of these beds can be made from metal and have metal or mesh slats for supporting the mattress.
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.
