Bed safety checks in ICU and high acuity clinical areas may seem like an easy and basic task. However, they are a crucial responsibility, which, if performed incorrectly, may impact patient survival in an emergency situation.

With the COVID-19 pandemic leading to an increase of critically unwell patients being admitted to hospitals, it is important to be adequately prepared for any adverse events. This means ensuring equipment is working and ready, and the patient’s space is safe.

What is a Bed Safety Check?

A bed safety check is the first task you should undertake after handover at the commencement of your shift. It involves:

  • Ensuring all equipment is available and working in the event of patient deterioration or another adverse event.
  • Ensuring the patient’s bed space is tidy, safe and free from potential harm to the patient, clinician or visitors.
