Is sad of course. I found it informative if nothing else & will give it a little more thought if & when I am exposed to them again.

I currently use two separate rolled up foam pcs. that are just bed length round pillows ,if placed against these rails it would prevent a person from being entangled in them I suppose.
If you or a loved one are using rails or just have problems rolling out be ,just placing pillows on either side is a big help. Rick
