18 FEBRUARY 2019 BED LEVER UPDATE - MINISTRY OF HEALTH BAND 1 LIST AND ACC SIMPLE LIST EQUIPMENT
It has been identified that the Band 1 List and Simple List Basic Standard Bed Lever has a potential risk for head entrapment. These models will no longer be supplied by accessable.
Recommendations propose that this risk is reduced/eliminated with the use of a three-bar design or a narrower equivalent with the use of a mattress strap/cleat. In conjunction with the Ministry and ACC, these recommendations have been accepted nationally by accessable.
The Band and Simple lists had previously been updated with the Bed Lever Narrow option – this option will no longer be available. The Three Bar Design option has been added to the OCO Catalogue and is the only model available going forward.
Responsibility for risk assessment to determine the suitability of equipment and correct fitting instructions remains with the clinician.
