In-bed baths / cleaning / hygiene
The Bed Bath Soap Sponges are ideal for patients who need a full body wash but are unable to use a shower.
Bed-bound and immobile patients can wash thoroughly using these light, hand-sized Bed Bath Sponges. Disposable sponges need just one tablespoon of water for a patient to complete an independent, full-body wash in bed, allowing them to wash with dignity. The in-bed cleaning solution is unique to Hospital Direct and couldn’t be easier to use. Simply remove the sponge from the packet, add a little water and lather up like you would a flannel with soap. Once finished, dispose of the sponge in a bin.
The Wet Wash n’ Wipe sponges are superb for use in all care environments and are more effective than wet wipes and flannels. The in-bed wash formulation is pre-loaded with a gentle, PH neutral, hypoallergenic soap which only requires a small amount of water to activate into a cleansing foam.
Hospital Direct stocks two variations of the bed bath sponges: a soft sponge and a fibre sponge. The soft sponge is excellent for regular bed baths, while the fibre sponge is brilliant for wound care due to its slightly rougher texture. The sponges are fully disposable, helping to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of infection in your organisation.
