Bed Inspections in the nursing home setting are on the rise and are being incorporated into life safety and state health inspections.  The focus is not new to healthcare, as the FDA released hospital guidelines back in 2006. As these principles merge into the post-acute continuum, education and tools are essential for your facility. 

Harmony Healthcare International (HHI) fashion emphasizes the importance of the team approach. Input and discussion is required by the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT), including nursing, maintenance and therapies.  The Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) should conduct an initial Bed Assessment (see download) along with annual bed inspections of all:

  1. Bed Rail Usage
  2. Bed Frames
  3. Bed Accessories

The intent of this process is to detect the risk of entrapment
