Elements of a letter of necessity

1. Introduce the patient and how long he/she has been the care of the doctor or facility: Describe his or her condition and detail the special needs that are a consequence of the condition (i.e. lack of control; no recognition of danger in rolling or falling out of bed; entanglement in side rails if a “hospital/institutional” bed is currently in use and the potential or documented injury as a result; potential of entrapment or suffocation due to the gaps around the mattress on either side or at the ends—especially the corners.)

2. Explain how the bed or crib currently being used fails to protect the patient and the consequence of falling will result in bodily harm. Include, if applicable, how the patient has the capacity to climb.

3. Perhaps address the psychological issues in regards to needing a safety bed. 

4. Recommend the Safe Place BedTM and how it addresses each of your concerns. In addition to the need of having a safety bed while traveling to doctor appointments, therapy camps, etc.
