Sorry ostin, can only give you a link to on-line operations, but can talk you through the bed making process if you need it?

You might like to ask here:Link

Hey zedd welcome back!

Bed making is easy when you know how, but lots of people here that are wanting to do HCA or even student nurses with no experience find it daunting! I did as I had no experience until I did some clinical skills lessons and bed making was one of them!

We had a laugh, and I learnt the art of hospital corners and then on the wards the bed making varied a lot from ward to ward!

I prefer the method where the bed linen is folded back at the feet for both sheets and outer blankets and this is because I do not like my feet to be enclosed as I have hot feet, but more importantly it prevents 'footdrop' and also prevents some bed ulcers on the heels of patients that are immobile and do not have the strength to kick off the covers to their feet!!!

Im sure training over there is the same as it is here, lots of good information, but some stuff you just have to do!
We need people like you and Mary to get into nursing and move up so far that you CAN CHANGE the training.
But for now just do it.

Service corpsmen (women) have to do that a lot, just nod and do it.

WE now have fitted sheets in our A&E, but they are the wrong size for the bed.

I love duvets, but they are not a practical choice in a hospital setting due to infection control

Just imagine trying to wash a hefty duvet after every patient

Sheets are changed every day here on most wards, depending on which ward you are on and top sheets may be turned to use again if the patient has not soiled it, or it has not been contaminated with body fluids of any sort and they are long stay i.e. for more than a week

It is also not cost effective to do this and as a nurse your must, as part of your code of conduct spend public money wisely, this comes under 'Accountability' within the code of conduct! This may seem like gobbldygook right now, but in time when your do your training you can look back here and know what I mean
