Published by Henan Lantian Medical Supplies Co., Ltd. July 24,2019

Before I come across the medical supplies, I don’t know there are various medical bed sheets for different uses, you can choose it according to your different needs.

One year, I care for my father in the hospital more than 6 months, I need to change the disposable bed sheets and the mattress every day. At that time, I was thinking, if there is a disposable bed sheet, which can absorb and waterproof the urine or other liquid material so not to wet the mattress at all, so it will reduce the transfer of the patients and will give the patients comfortable, health and hygiene. The father of one of my clients also encountered the same problem, so he looks forward to the product which will work as this is a problem in most hospitals as his country has an aging generation here.

So, in this article, I will tell you how to choose the hospital bed sheets.

What are hospital bed sheets and medical bed cover?

Disposable hospital bed sheet or medical bed cover is one of the medical supplies, it is used in the hospitals and clinics for the hospital bed to protect the patients and mattress. It only can be used once and give the patients comfortable and hygiene. The hospital bed sheet has no elastic bands, and the medical bed cover has the elastic bands on the two sides or the four corners.

How to select the hospital bed sheets?

The first thing you should consider is the bed sheets material, there are different materials for you, such as SMS, PP, SMS with PE coated, viscose with PE coated, and hydrophilic PP with PE coated. If you have high environmental requirements, you can also choose a degradable material, such as PLA.

It is an ideal choice for any type of stretcher or patient bed, and medical table used in hospitals and clinic settings. This kind of non-woven fabric is soft, free latex, light weight, breathable and neither absorbent nor waterproof, it and can be used for general medical protection to prevents the spread of disease and eliminates costs associated with laundering fabric bedding.

Another thing you should consider is the size of the hospital bed. The measurement of the fitted sheet is most critical for fit on the mattress and comfort for caregiver and patient. It is impossible to stretch the fitted sheet if it is too short. Using a fitted sheet that is too long means that it will be difficult to tuck in under the mattress on a hospital bed. Any sheet that is too long and drops to the floor can cause a trip hazard for everyone.
