Whether you're operating a nursing home, an urgent care center, a hospital, or even a childrens’ camp, you're likely to need various kinds of pillows, pillowcases and bed pads. Mattress overlays cradle your spine to provide breathable comfort and enhance sleep, while bed pads of various sorts make it easy to clean up after incontinence accidents and spills, while wicking away moisture from patients' skin to prevent bedsores or infections. While travelling or working, lumbar support pillows help keep the spine in alignment, and seat cushions add a little extra comfort to get through the work day or recover from surgery. Consider adding extra support with bed wedges, whole body pillows, and tension pillows that protect the neck.
You can provide the kind of lumbar support needed for proper spine alignment, whether you use it for long-haul driving, sitting in an office chair, or recovering in a hospital bed. Elastic straps on some lumbar support pillows hold them securely in place, while small half-size lumbar pillows are easy to tuck into a backpack or suitcase to make sure you don't go unsupported on a business trip. Consider adding a plush swivel seat cushion to a desk chair to make a long day in front of a keyboard more comfortable, or choose fleece-covered cushions or donut foam pillows to enjoy the feeling of sitting down. At night or for those in the hospital, bed wedges allow proper positioning, while tension pillows or headrests allow you to keep your neck stable during rest periods.
Hypoallergenic bed pillows filled with fiberfill are usable even by people with allergies or asthma, making them a great choice for hospitals, hotels, dorms or camps. Disposable pillowcases help enhance hygiene, as multiple people can use the same pillow and medical linens keep the beds clean and comfortable. Body pillows cradle the entire body to provide relief for back pain and are ideal to help pregnant women sleep in comfort. Employees who travel for business frequently appreciate having memory foam travel pillows available, and foam pillows with cooling gel provide extra comfort by wicking away body heat during warm nights.
Bed pads can help you in dealing with patients suffering from incontinence, consider choosing pads with polypropylene backing that keep them securely in place, and pads with extra material in the center are extra absorbent. Breathable pads also can help relieve pressure sores, making rest and sleep more comfortable, while reusable bed pads wick moisture away from the skin to keep skin healthy and can go through multiple washing and drying cycles, making them cost-effective. You can buy small pads in bulk to slip under seat covers or to use in exam rooms or with medical beds or choose air-permeable dry pads specially designed for low air loss mattress therapy. Where comfort is a priority, consider adding an egg crate-style mattress overlay to prevent pressure sores, improve circulation, and increase the chances for a restful night's sleep.
