Bed Assists (not Bed rails) in Assisted Living Facilities (not Skilled Nursing Facility): I hope someone can respond to this for me. My mother has a bed assist not a bed rail. The assisted living facility she is in is now insisting on an overpriced product that would also require that I buy her a bed with a metal frame versus the bed with a wood frame that she has now. I want to make sure I am clear, what she is using does not even cover a quarter of the bed, it is not a bed rail. Anyone have any experience or recommendations regarding some kind of bed assist/bed cane? I think this is an overreaction by the facility to the bed rail/restraint regulations for nursing facilities and their interpretation is very narrow. Keep in mind also I asked if it was acceptable when she moved into this assisted living facility in May. It is now June 28th and it is now an issue. No she has not fallen, never has been caught in it etc.
