Giving Compassionate Care with Quality Bed Products

Giving Compassionate Care with Quality Bed Products
Sick Woman With A Cup Of Tea by marinDelivering high quality nursing care is fundamental to maintaining dignity, helping recovery, and preventing problems and complications. Care needs to be evidence based, efficient but given with compassion. Having access to effective solutions that give people their dignity are essential in today’s National Health Service. One of the simple solutions to a challenging nursing problem is the waterproof mattress pad cover which is a far more discreet product than those used several years ago.

In today’s NHS the patients being admitted to hospital and nursed in the community are increasingly complex. Many have one or more comorbidities and this sometimes leads to an increase in problems such as incontinence and bladder control.

Some patients choose to spend their final days at home but fear of dealing with continence problems is a barrier. As more and more patients are nursed in community settings, having practical solutions to hand helps the patient and their family be more independent.

A waterproof mattress pad cover is a practical and discreet way of managing problems with potential incontinence. These fit over a standard mattress and are really comfortable. They help deal with that fear of soiling a mattress or having continual sheets on the washing line. A thin layer of plastic helps keep the mattress dry but is not too heavy to be uncomfortable to sleep on. And the old days of noisy uncomfortable rubber sheets have gone with the newer products on the market.

For carers the burden of washing and ironing soiled sheets is eliminated because these are disposed of in waste bags or be recycled. They are easy to change and keep the patient dry which helps prevent chafing and pressure sores. The waterproof mattress pad protector can last for weeks depending on the amount of direct content and whether there is a layer between the patient and the cover.

 

l_drap-housse-nuideal-2There is also a luxurious product that is even cosier for patients called the Nuideal Mattress Cover.

By enabling care to be given in a compassionate and dignified way in the home a patient can be nursed in an environment of their choosing without the fear of smells and spillages. These mattress covers are a very practical solution and for the nursing staff it avoids having to move soiled linen to and from a care setting. This in turn gives more time to spend with patients and is an efficient way of working, especially when staff are challenged by their workloads.

For a dignified solution to an everyday problem the waterproof mattress pad cover can help patients, carers, and nursing staff provide high quality care to people in a very simple and efficient way.

Looking for a High Quality Mattress Protector, disposable or durable?

A mattress protector is like a second skin for a mattress. It breathes new life into a mattress and keeps it looking fresh. A mattress is one of the most important things in your bedroom, so after your mattress and pillow, the mattress protector is the next most important thing.

Purchase of a mattress protector is advisable as it is difficult to remove stains from most mattresses.

At Caractère’s you will find a bunch of solutions responding to your expectations:

The disposable mattress protector: Waterproof flat pads, waterproof fitted sheets, DWR (durable water repellency) or non-waterproof.
The mattress renovator for stained or used mattresses.

So, what should you use ?

Even without accidents, an unprotected mattress can get stained by perspiration. The salts and minerals in perspiration produce slightly brown stains. Mattress warranties are generally invalidated if the mattress is stained, and mattress protectors prevent this. A simple non waterproof pad or a fitted sheet can help avoid these mild problems.

Disposable mattress protectors are also invaluable when toilet-training a child. You will then choose a waterproof mattress protector.

Mattress protectors prevent not only accidents but infestation by dust mites, bed bugs,

bed bug

bed bug

and the like. Dust mites feed on the tiny particles of skin that we shed every night. Dust mites cause eczema and asthma in children and are one of the most common causes of allergies in humans. These can be found in any home, no matter how clean it is, and the greatest concentration of them in your house is in your mattress.

Mattress protectors also reduce the ability of mould to grow on a mattress. They are recommended for people who have allergies, and for maximum protection, it is best to buy a mattress protector which is approved by the British Allergy FoundationFor these concerns, breathable non-waterproof fitted sheets or mattress renovators are advisable.

Mattress protectors are essential if a person has continence issues. This is often a problem for men, particularly if they have received prostate treatment. Between 39 and 63 percent of men who have been treated for prostate cancer experience some level of urinary incontinence for a year after surgery. Men can also simply have over-active bladders, or problems with the bladder caused by such conditions as interstitial cystitis. Incontinence can also result from neurological problems, for instance, after a stroke. Insurance companies might cover the cost of disposable mattress protectors in this situation. You will then turn to the waterproof fitted sheet as a solution.

It is also disposable and so the hotel industry makes extensive use of such mattress protectors as they protect mattresses effectively and discreetly while assuring the freshness that is required of the hospitality industry. They are clean, fresh and require less labour to maintain, which can allow a hotel to decrease its workforce.

The Sweet Night fitted sheet (low noise technology) is the best product for hotels and B&Bs and has been approved by the biggest european hotel group.

Another good product but not waterproof is the mattress renovator:

Good mattress renovator are made of extremely thick, strong, non-woven fabric: This mattress renovator has zippers at either side and is made of extremely thick and strong non-woven fabric.

So, remember:

A good mattress protector is also more efficient if it has an elasticized skirt that provides a secure fit and is able to completely surround the mattress.

Good quality mattress renovator should be zip-closed, it will be more comfortable and convenient to use.

Scabies in the Elysée Palace? How Disposable Sheets and Linens can Prevent a Public Heath Disaster

Well, honestly we never expected disposable sheets would be the next big thing to hit Paris’ Elysée Palace, where the President of France resides. Surprisingly, an article that originated in a Parisian daily paper, 20 Minutes (then reprinted and rebroadcast by all the major media outlets of the capital), about a year ago details the poor hygiene conditions that the President’s Republican Guards must endure, merely to accomplish their jobs.

“Three Cases of Scabies at the Elysée” by William Molinié
The Elysée Palace and the dust mite scabei, a mite responsible for scabies

HEALTH – It all started with three private level officers who worked at the palace… A disease that puts a nasty damper on the prestige of the gold-plated presidential palace. “Three suspected cases of scabies were reported during the summer on three sub-officers at the Elysée Palace,” said the Press Secretary for the President of the Republic.

This highly contagious skin disease is most often caught by the homeless who live in the most difficult of conditions. “Indeed, there have been some instances [of Scabies] in the Elysée because of the dilapidated condition of the premises,” confirmed the Association for Military Rights Advocacy.

“The plaster walls are falling apart”
According to official military sources who wish to remain anonymous, “the plaster walls are falling apart into pieces” and “some policemen are sleeping in linen closets that are never aired out.” The bedding is also “almost never changed” and the guards have to provide their own investment “in disposable sheets.” From the point of view of the President, he wants to reassure the public. “Renovations of the rooms have been undertaken to reduce overcrowding, a main factor that contributes to this disease,” he claimed.

Waterproof Mattress Covers

Let’s just say the misfortune of the Republican Guard has put a spotlight on our core business, disposable linens and bedsheets. The disposable sheet was invented to avoid the risk of spread of diseases and infections, especially in hospitals, nursing homes and day cares. It was quickly adopted by other accommodations, such as hotels, rural country cottages, camp sites, bed and breakfasts, inns, guest houses and boarding schools. The first few generations of the products were uncomfortable and noisy, often causing guests to disturb themselves with the sound of their own shifting positions in the middle of the night. However, today’s innovations in non-woven fabric technology have revolutionised disposable linens with ultra-thin waterproof layers, increasing their comfort, softness and hospitality. The Nuideal Tranquil Night Mattress Cover, for instance, guarantees waterproof protection while also feeling every bit as soft as high thread count cotton. These waterproof covers and mattress pads are already used by luxury hotels that must ensure they always provide impeccably clean beds and proper service to demanding clients.

Thanks to constantly evolving technology, nonwoven fabrics can mean time and cost

savings for hotel owners and managers who won’t have to worry anymore about washing and drying reusable products, nor the high water and electricity bills that accompany these processes, nor having to deal with expensive bleaching and spot-removal services. What’s more, disposable sheets are 100% recyclable. Some are even biodegradable, which means minimal to no environmental impact, often at a much lower cost than reusable products.
