Nurses and care home staff have been asked to trace all Atlantic bed rails (product code EBA013), manufactured by Park House Healthcare.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said the original instructions issued with these bedrails contained insufficient information for correct installation.
It said: “If incorrectly fitted there is a risk of entrapment between the bedrail and the head or foot board of the bed, resulting in postural asphyxiation.”
