Falling out of bed with side rails. Suggestions?
My uncle is in a nursing home. He is very frail, can't sit/stand/walk on his own. I received a call saying he rolled out of bed last night and needs x-rays. I asked if his side rails were up and bed alarm was up. I was told yes, but he rolled over the rails. Knowing my uncle's physical condition, I find this hard to believe. He can barely roll over on his own never mind OVER raised bed rails. Even if this were true, wouldn't the bed alarm be going off as he tried to go up and over?? Has anyone experienced this before? Is there anything I can do to make sure this doesn't happen again?
