Manufacturer Narrative
It was reported that the patient was found deceased while in use with the self-releasing roll belt, but there was no allegation that the device malfunction or functioned in some way to potentially harm the patient. Additionally, there is no evidence to suggest use error or abnormal use may have contributed to the incident. The self-releasing roll belt is indicated for use with patients needing a reminder to call for assistance before exiting a bed who are able to follow instructions, and/or for patients needing a positioning device for added safety while in bed. This product is designed to be self-releasing, and the instructions for use caution that if the patient is not able to easily self-release, the device is considered a restraint and must be prescribed by a physician. The instructions for use were reviewed and found to provide adequate instructions and warnings for safe and effective use of the device. The application instructions caution the user to check the device for damage and that hook and loop adheres securely. In addition, the ifu has numerous warnings to reduce the risk of serious injury or death. These warnings include always using hospital bed safety workgroup (hbsw) compliant side rails in the up position and to fill all gaps to reduce the risk of entrapment, and using side rail covers and gap protectors to help prevent the patient's body from going under, around, through or between the side rails. Caregivers are warned that there is a risk of chest compression or suffocation if the patient's body weight is suspended off the mattress. Patients should be monitored per facility policy to ensure that the patient cannot slide down or fall off the mattress and become suspended or entrapped. Use of the device should be stopped at once if the patient is at risk to slide forward or down in the device. Before leaving the patient unattended, caregivers are instructed to explain the use of the device to the patient and ensure that the patient understands how to self-release in case of emergency. Based on the information currently available, there is no indication that the device contributed to the event. (b)(4). Pending device return.
