Hospitals can be good places to catch cold or other illnesses. They can also, it seems, be good places to catch fire. Investigator Joanne Berger has alerted us to a snazzily written guide to preventing hospital bed fires. The document is titled, simply, “Safety Tips for Preventing Hospital Bed Fires” and is published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. A crackling good read if you’r ein the mood for that sort of thing, it can be found and enjoyed here.
