The letters instructed the customers to locate the beds and examine the siderails for any visible damage (cracks, bending, loose parts) and conduct a physical assessment of all four siderails on each bed to determine if the sideral could be placed in all positions. If the siderails were found to be inoperable, the bed was to be taken out of service until a qualified Hill-Rom technician can make any necessary correction. The customers were instructed to contact Hill-Rom to make arrangements and inform them of all beds that they have loaned, sold, no longer use or disposed of at 800-445-3720, option 2. The letter states the firm is evaluating a design change to the siderail.
