does anyone work in a nursing home? i am asking cuz we had to put my father in a nursing home on friday and on saturday my sister called me frantic my mother had called her and told her that my father fell out of his bed at the home and hit his head. well needless to say i called the home to find out what was going on and asked why they didn't have rails on his bed as he is a fall risk . they told me it is against the law for them to have rails on the bed. i have never heard such a thing just wondering if this is true?

Oh my god jodi I am so sorry. I know that the nursing home my grandmother was just in, they had rails on the beds. I don't know about any laws or anything but that seems crazy!! I would get him transferred and look into suing them for f'n negligence! That is just ridiculous!
