What’s covered on the day?

The aim of this course is to provide the learner with an overview of using bed rails and the knowledge and understanding to be able to work to best practice. Bed rails can be very effective when used correctly. However, data shows that accidents still happen and that they don?€™t prevent falls and can introduce other risks. Following some serious case reviews, and the publicity received around the use of bed rails, this course equips staff teams with the essential knowledge of the potential risks and how to use bed rails safely.


There is no formal summative assessment, as part of this course. Learners knowledge and understanding will be checked throughout the course delivery and a knowledge assessment will be undertaken at the end to evidence the understanding of the individual.
