What Kind of Bed Sheets or Bedspreads Are Suitable for Hospital Beds?

How to choose Hospital Bed Sheets?

There are several factors go into making the best choice of medical bed sheets or  medical bed covers for your patient or loved one.

When choosing bed sheets and other items for hospitals, the first thing to consider is how to avoid cross-infection. Cross-contamination of patients during hospitalization is increasingly receiving attention from medical institutions. Disposable bed lines or bed covers are often the most convenient way to prevent cross-contamination, as many are antimicrobial and block the growth of bacteria on their surface.

However, it should be noted that some experts feel that disposable bed sheets or bed covers may be more hazardous in terms of spreading germs because they are not always disposed of carefully or with attention to containment. This is more of a procedural than a product issue, and with proper disposal, these bed sheets are still the best solution for contamination control.

Waterproof bed sheets and bedspreads will extend the life of a hospital bed mattress by protecting it from urine, bloods and other bodily fluids. Waterproof bed linens and mattress covers can also help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew which may thrive in moist environments. Soft and comfortable non-woven fabric coated with a breathable waterproof membrane will give you a good waterproof and comfortable experience. The waterproof layer not only has high moisture permeability, but also has good moisture permeability (human sweat can penetrate freely between the films), and its moisture permeability can also be the normal respiration of human skin.

Factors to consider:

The First is Material

Viscose Non-woven Fabric has cloth-like texture and softness, excellent breathable, antistatic, and absorbent, give your patients a more comfortable and dry experience.

Hydrophilic PP Fabric, The hydrophilic non-woven fabric has strong liquid adsorption and is harmless to the human body, convenient and practical! The hydrophilic nonwoven fabric is obtained by adding a hydrophilic agent to the production process of the nonwoven fabric, or adding a hydrophilic agent to the fiber during the production of the fiber, and then the nonwoven fabric produced is a hydrophilic nonwoven fabric.

Biodegradable PLA Fabric, it is a new type of biological-based material, which has soft feel, strong adsorption, moisturizing and breathable, bacteriostatic, is a pure, safe, healthy, close to the skin of the high quality material, known as the second layer of skin. At the same time, it is also a natural degradable material, which can be completely degraded into carbon dioxide and water one year after being buried in the soil, and does not cause any harm to the environment. Therefore, it is more and more popular with people.

The Second is Size Fit

The right size of hospital bed sheets or bed covers will fit well on a hospital-size mattress, without creases or pulling. Folds and creases in sheets and pillowcases can cause bed sores or skin shearing (pulling and tearing of fragile skin). For the bed covers, you also should also consider the length and elasticity of the rubber band.

The Third is Skin Protection

The more breathable the sheets you select, the less chance there is of skin breakdown for the patient. Often, disposable bed sheets or medical bed covers are the most breathable, and many standard hospital bed sheets feature skin protective options and materials, free from chemical agents and latex, soft on sensitive skin.

The Fourth Patient Size

Bariatric patients will require larger hospital beds, and therefore larger-size sheets will need to be used. Be sure you are ordering bed sheets or bed covers with the dimensions that will fit the bed you are using. Additionally, bariatric patients bring unique concerns to purchasing sheets that aid in repositioning. Make sure you choose a linen set with an appropriate weight capacity before trying to use sheets to help move a patient in bed.
