5 Bedding Essentials for Your Healthcare Practice
Fresh, clean linens are essential for your healthcare practice and can be quite the investment. Through linen rentals with New England Linen, you’ll save money and have the bedding essentials for carrying out every day operations at your practice.
Whether you opt for a flat and fitted sheet, or just the fitted sheet, sheets are essential for all healthcare practices. Placed on top of the mattress protector and bed pad, the fitted sheets stays on the mattress via an elastic band around the bottom of the mattress. Sheets keep patients off of the mattress padding and can be easily switched out between patients to keep a clean and sterile environment.
2. Mattress Protector
Since mattresses for healthcare practices can be expensive, it’s essential to keep them protected in order to be sanitary for patients. With any linen rental service, mattress protectors should be top priority to reduce the costs on purchasing new mattresses.
Pillowcases can easily be switched out between patients and keep sweat and oils off of the pillow themselves. Pillow protectors can also be used underneath the pillowcase to protect the pillow further.
Healthcare practices are known for being cold and patients often requests multiple blankets to keep warm. Typically made of cotton, microfiber plush, polyester, or a combination of fibers.
5. Bed Pads
Bed pads go between the mattress pad and the fitted sheets and are extremely absorbent. Dry environments are important when patients are being treated with the possibility of being bedridden for days or weeks.
