Are Side Rails Required?

Poorly fitted bed rails have been known to cause asphyxiation where a resident's neck, chest or limbs have become trapped in gaps between the bed rails, or between the bed rail and the bed, headboard or mattress. Most profiling beds have the siderails built-in side but can present other risks include rolling over the top of the rail, climbing over the rail, climbing over the footboard, violently shaking and dislodging rails and forceful contact with bed rail parts.

Before you go through the process of carrying out a risk assessment, are side rails necessary or would mesh panels suffice?
