This waiver-disclaimer is included within the written contract to purchase products in Whitehall Manufacturing’s BestCare® line, which was designed by the manufacturer for use within psychiatric and other institutional facilities.  These products are intended to decrease the probability that such fixtures may be utilized as an apparatus for ligature, but are not represented as able to prevent a sentinel event. While this product has been constructed with patient safety in mind, it is not a replacement for professionals who are trained in the proper evaluation and management of persons at risk of suicide. 

Whitehall Manufacturing makes no express or implied warranty with respect to the preventative quality of its products, but merely represents that the use of such products tends to reduce such deaths and injuries by patients or clients when proper installation practices are followed, and while patients and clients are under meticulous supervision.
