Interpretation Help for Handrails

We are a long term care facility in Maryland and I want to be sure I am providing the proper guidance regarding bedrails and following the appropriate standards.

 

NFPA 2012 101.18.2.3.4(5) (is our guide) versus IBC 2015 407.4.3 (not sure if this is a better guide)

IBC appears to provide an exception for handrail projections, not more than 1 1/2 inches.

 

Any thoughts?
