This may seem like a silly question but I am going into nursing school and I have to take a test tomorrow --possibly with putting on a vest restraint and tying a quick release knot around the bed frame. Can anyone coach me through how to tie the quick release knot! Help please. I only remember some sort of loop involved!
I appreciate any help.
The Nclex practice question also said to tie posey vests to the movable part of the bed. So do the manufacturers instructions. But I cannot find any explaination about why. Does anyone know?
Edit to add... Oh. I found it. I was thrown by the "movable" and didn't notice the "frame". They mean the part of the frame that supports the mattress as it is inclined, not the bed rails.
Also, this video demonstrates how to tie a quick release knot http://www.uxtm.com/demos/posey/tyingbed.html
and shows it being done from a couple of angles.
