Washington, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, of Port Washington, New York, are announcing the voluntary recall of  four different models of its Bed Assist Handle and Bed Assist Rail adult portable bed rails. Drive has received two reports of entrapment deaths associated with two of its Bed Assist Handle bed rails (models 15064 and RTL15073). The deaths occurred in February 2011 and February 2015, and involved a 93-year-old woman at her home in California, and a 92-year-old man at an assisted living facility in Canada. In both incidents, the bed rails were not securely attached to the bed and the users became entrapped between the product and their mattress.
