This course collects part of the knowledge acquired in 12 years of work related to the risks, accidents and deaths suffered by dementia Patients in their beds due to the use of dangerous Restraint belts and unsafe Bed rails.
In Institutions and Homes around the world, recurrent serious and sometimes fatal accidents at bed occur due to the lack of adequate protocols or lack of knowledge on the Caregiver about the risks faced by dementia Patients when the Restraint belts and Bed rails are applied in beds. These devices are comontly used to prevent dementia Patient from falling out of bed ... when in reality with these devices the dementia Patients are subject to risks and dangers that should be avoided.
The goal of this Course is to show the Caregiver those risks and teach how to achieve 100% Safety at Bed for dementia Patients.
I wish the information and documentation of this Course will be very useful and beneficial for the dementia Patient at risk.
This course will be in continuous review and update ..... I invite you to visit us again from time to time.
Please, let me know of any errors you find, and suggestions or ideas that you think may help to improve this course, will be welcome.
