This function works to help the caregivers as well as prevent the patient from injuries in case they fall out of the bed.
The hospital beds are installed with large industrial wheels that enable them to move quickly and easily. Besides they come with inbuilt side rails that cannot be removed. The bed controls are normally located at the side rails or can be accessed using a remote control that is normally wired to the bed.
