As long as a nursing bed is converted, it is to shut down as much as possible. The connection to the mains power supply is recommended only for electric settings. A daily use can only happen if the electrician on the spot does a daily check of propulsion systems. To guarantee of the electrical safety of the nursing bed, finally three more test steps should be made: transportation of the bed the power cord on the floor may fall and be overrun, therefore a device must exist, which prevents the comprehensive description of all maintenance and care measures (here is not an indication of standards) check primary fuse on the transformer (this is non-existent or defective, is a retrofit) other defects and damage, which should arise and therefore also be part of the review of care beds, are recommended: kink protection and strain relief are missing or defective slatted frame is broken side rail beams lift cylinder housing of the remote control are broken using an inappropriate mattress damage the housing of the control unit / motor is defective or gas springs are defective end position cut-off emergency lowering is defective, clipping the side rails is broken is broken besides the clipping, as mentioned in the last item in this list, there are many more sources of error in the side rails. This can cause bad jamming and crushing. Therefore are dependent on the expected mechanical load, to comply strictly with the prescribed separation distance and mass.
All locking and fastening elements must be functional. The State of the page grid is therefore an important part of regular checks. The audit involves Following: distances between the moving parts must be within the normal range of finger check for additional damage, weak spots, signs of overuse review of suspensions and latches for damage or wear locking mechanism which has side rails work comply with the given Seitengittermasse; Review by: distance between side rails in upright position and elements in their environment of thickness of the mattress proper distance between Head / footboard and side rails proper distance between split side rails corresponds to intended use and manufacturer’s specifications and bed in flat position measurements of the length of the side rail or sum of all lengths of split side rails on one side of the beds must be correct height of the upper edge of the side rail above the mattress (no compression) smallest dimension of all available openings between the side rails and bed surface must not be exceeded are all these distances and dimensions are given accurate and may be exceeded no more than 10 per cent.
