At the other pole there are potential benefits for patients with respect to access to the bed controls, turning/rolling assistance. For staff, the main benefits are based on a risk-averse behaviour relating to litigation. The question for quality in healthcare product design and clinical practice is whether the design and use of bed rails can support functionality and provision of care for patients and staff without introducing hazards. From the current evidence it would seem that balance is tipped towards a norm of bed rail use that is likely to increase rather than decrease risk of injury to patients.
