Air beds are also known as blow up mattresses and are commonly used for camping as they are convenient and easy to carry. A lot of these air beds come with foot pumps but can be blown up in minutes with an electric pump. Air beds are also great for visiting guests. Water beds are just that - beds filled with water! There are two types of water bed, soft sided water bed or hard sided water bed. The more expensive water beds are made to lessen the wave effect which was common in the early models. Water beds are usually heated and a thermostat controls the temperature.
Bed side rails have been in existence for years and are manufactured by several different companies with numerous configurations and designs. A quick search of the Internet discloses a number of medical supply companies which manufacture and sell these products. The most common bed rail designs include full-length rails, three-quarter-length rails, half-length rails, quarter-length rails, and split-rail configuration (often the most dangerous design). Bed rails are used extensively in hospitals and nursing homes. In hospitals, their use is typically a nursing decision rather than based upon a physician’s order. However, in nursing homes, Federal regulations require a physician’s order if bed rails are to be used, as the regulations recognize side rails as a form of restraint. Notwithstanding the requirement for nursing homes, physician’s orders are often not obtained because of the belief that bed rails are simply a safety device. This is a misconception: bed rails often cause injury or death.
