    I had wondered why they didn't allow bed rails since it seems like a good safety device. But, I hadn't thought about the other dangers. Thanks for explaining.

    I love the term clothing protectors. I think I will make some for myself. Living alone, I frequently eat in my recliner while reading or watching tv and usually just put a kitchen towel over me. These would also be functional and pretty!

    "Clothing Protector" does sound nicer than "Bib"

    I also need them. Try as I might - I usually end up with a splotch on my front.

    Nice clothing protectors. I would have loved some of them for my residents when I worked in a long term nursing facility. For the comments on side rails, they are considered a restraint and often require Dr's order and can be dangerous with a confused resident. Low beds and floor pads work well and if you have problem getting them talk to their Dr and get ordr for them.
    Thankful to still be here.Someone upstairs must still have a plan for me.

    What a wonderful and useful item. They would be perfect for lots of people in nursing homes and hospitals. I will be coping your pattern and thanking you for your sharing.
