(a) Use special anti-smother safety pillow due to risk of smothering on a soft pillow during sleep seizures.
(b) Use a low good-sized bed with padded headboard.
(c) Smoking in bed is unwise for everyone especially for someone with nocturnal seizures.
(d) Keep freestanding furniture away from beds to prevent injury during a fall. Built-in furniture is preferable.
(e) Coarse carpets can lead to friction burns for those who fall - keep a safety mat beside the bed.
(f) Wall mounted lamps pose fewer risks than ordinary bedside or table lamps which are easily knocked over.
