    About 113,000 portable bed rails for adults are being voluntarily recalled because they pose a risk of entrapment and strangulation, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced today.

  • Portable bed rails and handles, also called side rails, are commonly used in health care facilities or homes to help people turn, pull themselves up or get out of bed. But if a gap opens between the bed and the rail, elderly patients can get their heads stuck and may be too weak, confused or sick to free themselves.

    Some consumer advocates said the recall was a positive step forward. “But we believe all portable adult bedrails should be recalled and banned because of the unacceptable risks,” said Michael Carome, director of the Health Research Group for Public Citizen, which filed a petition in 2013 asking that adult portable bed rails be permanently removed from the market.
