Compliance and Safety of Invacare Beds

Compliance and Safety of Invacare Beds

The deadline is approaching for all those involved in the management of Nursing Care Beds to

ensure compliance with the recent MHRA National Patient Safety Alert. We have prepared the

information below to assist you in your activities.

All Invacare’s Community and Nursing Care beds, and optional accessories meet the British,

European, and international standard for adult medical beds ‐ BS EN 60601252:2010+A1:2015.

Please note, it is emphasised that this standard is for individuals over 146cm in height, exceeding

40kg in weight, and with a BMI of more than 17.

For children's medical beds a specific standard, BS EN50637:2017 standard applies.

To help you ensure that the relevant bed, mattress, and accessory combinations you manage is

compliant we have a handy Rail Ruler Guide which will help you identify potential entrapment

 issues. We provide these FREE of CHARGE. Please contact us on sales@protec.uk.com to make a request.
