Installing Side Rails on an Invacare Hospital Bed
Side rails are an important safety feature for hospital beds, providing support and protection for patients. Installing side rails on an Invacare hospital bed is a relatively simple process that can be completed in just a few steps.
Step 1: Assemble the Side Rails
The first step is to assemble the side rails. Each rail should come with two pieces that need to be connected together. Make sure the pieces are securely fastened before moving on to the next step.
Step 2: Attach the Side Rails to the Bed Frame
Once the side rails are assembled, they need to be attached to the bed frame. The rails should fit snugly into the slots located on either side of the bed frame. Securely tighten any screws or bolts that may be necessary to keep them in place.
Step 3: Adjust the Height of the Side Rails
The final step is to adjust the height of the side rails. This can be done by loosening or tightening the knobs located at each end of the rail. Make sure that they are adjusted so that they provide adequate support and protection for the patient.
