Bed-bound/Bedridden patient care

Whatever the reason someone is unable to leave one's bed, there will be many similar needs. Whether you are a patient or caregiver of someone who is confined to bed, bedridden patient care is very important. Bed-bound or bedridden patients require certain products and medical supplies for maximum comfort, cleanliness, and dignity.

Some issues that need to be considered for bedridden patients

How can bedsores be prevented

  • Turning and repositioning the patient every 2 hours
  • Sitting upright and straight in a wheelchair, changing position every 15 minutes
  • Have soft padding in wheelchairs and beds to reduce pressure
  • Get good skin care products and a good skin care routine, keep the skin clean and dry
  • Providing good nutrition because without enough calories, vitamins, minerals, fluids, and protein, bed sores can’t heal.
  • Inspect the skin for areas of redness (the first sign of skin breakdown) every day.

Hygiene tips for a bed bound patient

  • Bathing regularly and keeping the body clean
  • Keeping the hair clean
  • Trim nails
  • Change bedding
  • Brush teeth after meals
  • Keep the room clean and tidy
  • (If being used) there needs to be easy access to toilet facilities such as a commode
