In certain circumstances there is an element of risk involved in the use of a device that attaches to the side of a bed such that there is the possibility of entrapment between the device and the mattress. This includes but is not limited to a bed pole (stick), bed rail or bed rail protector. The device may increase the risk of injury or even death to the bed occupant. Entrapment of limbs or body parts may occur with parts of the bed and the device. Some bed occupants may try to climb over a bed rail to get out of bed.

A risk assessment should be undertaken in each circumstance of use. The device should not be used in circumstances where there is a gap between the vertical components and the mattress. Users most at risk include those with physical or cognitive challenges or where the intended user's alertness is affected by medication.

Regular monitoring is recommended, particularly where the user's condition is changing.
