Definition : Structures designed to cover pediatric beds (i.e., cribs) to increase children's safety. These coverings are usually a metal and/or plastic structure that is permanently attached to the top of the crib; typically a rigid structure is used with flexible transparent plastic (e.g., vinyl) foil enclosing the entire crib. Crib tops are intended to protect children from accidental injuries; dedicated crib tops for use in hospitals, homes, and/ or day cares (e.g., canopylike) are also available.
