The nurse aide sees that the side rail of an empty bed is broken while making them. What should the nurse aid do?

A Report the broken side rail immediately

Keeping customers safe at all times is the responsibility of every staff member. This involves monitoring all equipment and reporting when anything needs repair. Never use broken equipment or try to create a temporary solution if equipment is not working properly. Tag the broken bed and move it so that another customer can’t use it. Replace it immediately with one that has functioning side rails.
