Bedwell bed pan covers and absorbent pads are the safe and hygienic way to use bedpans whilst minimising the possibility of infection
Life-threatening infections in hospitals and care homes are found to be spread most quickly via airborne faeces and urine spores found on bed pans and urinals. One of the most effective ways of reducing the spread of infections is to ensure bedpans are thoroughly disinfected after each use, which is incredibly time consuming for nurses and care-givers.
Bedwell Protective Bedpan Covers are supplied in packs of 20 with 20 absorbent pads to soak up any liquids safely and hygienically. They are designed to completely cover the entire bedpan, including the underside, and then wrap around the Bedpan handle, effectively protecting it from contamination.
A high-absorbency pad is then placed inside the bedpan which helps to absorb any liquid in the bed pan when it is used. This pad contains high levels of sodium polyacrylate, a powder which is incredibly absorbent, and is produced with cellulose which helps to keep the pad strong even when filled with liquid and/or solids.
When full, the Bedwell can quickly and safely be removed from the bedpan, tied at the top and disposed of appropriately. The bedpan is left clean and free from contamination, dramatically reducing the risk of spreading infection.
