Patients are able to get in and out of bed in Unit 2A much safer due to new bedside safety mats designed to prevent falls. The mats, which were made possible through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, have beveled edges for easy patient transfers from wheelchairs and lifts, and non-slip surfaces and padding underneath.
