Ask your nurse for instructions on using the bed controls. Never try to
lower the bed's side rails or climb over them. We ask that you keep
your top two side rails up at all times. Ask for help when getting out
of bed and wear slippers or shoes with non-skid soles. Never use a
bedside table or over bed stand for support. they may move under your
weight. Use extra care in the bathroom, especially when using the
shower, tub, or toilet. Move slowly and use the grab bar for support.
don't hesitate to ask for help. Falls are the most common source of
patient injuries, especially falls from or near the bed. Your physician
will order activity based on your condition. Please check with your
nurse before getting out of bed or sitting. Use your nurse call button
if you need assistance.
