This law/policy forces my mother w/Alzheimer's and recent hip fracture, to sleep on narrow bed without bed rails, at a post-op facility. She has a history of falling, and hallucinates at night making that the most dangerous time. I offered to sign a waiver, or to stay the night at the facility to guard her, but was denied.
I understand restraints were over used in the past, and they are dangerous to some people, but our situation was an obvious, more danger without the bed rails(allowed in hospitals). I want to advocate for patients Right to Not Fall.
