Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves four (4) styles of Assistive Hand Bed Rails, as follows:

  • Endurance branded Hand Bed Rails, sold with a model number of P1410
  • Endurance branded Hand Bed Rails with Pouch, sold with a model number of P1410-P
  • Endurance branded Hand Bed Rails with Floor Support, sold with a model number of P1411
  • Endurance branded Hand Bed Rails with Floor Support with Pouch, sold with a model number of P1411-P

==> No barcodes, UPCs, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The name “Essential Medical Supply, Inc.” and the model number can be found printed on a label located on the grip handle of the Bed Rails. The Rails are made of either chrome or white metal tubing and include black padding on the grip handle and under-bed frame. They measure approximately 17 inches to 21 inches high by 20 inches wide.

According to the CPSC, when attached to an adult’s bed, users of these products can become entrapped within the Bed Rail or between the Rail and the side of the Mattress. This poses a serious entrapment hazard and risk of death by asphyxiation.

One (1) entrapment death has been reported involving the Endurance Hand Bed Rail (model P1410). The death occurred in December 2012 and involved an 86-year-old man at his home in California.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Endurance branded Hand Bed Rails, please immediately stop using them. For consumers who own Bed Rails sold or imported on or after November 1, 2015, Essential Medical Supply will provide a refund that will be pro-rated depending on the age of the Bed Rail. The company is not, however, offering a remedy for older Bed Rails. If you have an older Bed Rail, defined as having being sold between the months of October 2006 to October 2015, please stop using it, disassemble the product and dispose of the Bed Rails to prevent reuse.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat entrapment, asphyxiation, respiratory collapse and/or cardiac system collapse.
