Beautiful bedding sets of a bedside individual, whether at home or in a skilled facility, should be changed two to three times a week. This prevents the buildup of bacteria in the sheets and blankets from perspiration and other body fluids. Change an incontinent individual’s bedding daily. Changing bedding is very important to control the development of ulcers, also known as pressure ulcers. Pure, fresh leaves and change of position will protect against bacteria and development of pressure points.

Collect the necessary beautiful bedding sets and place it on a chair or bedside table next to the bed. Ensure that you will be careful and gentle. If the person is resident in a facility or is incontinent, put on gloves. Carefully roll the person away from you. Use one hand to stabilize and secure them if they cannot hold their body in position.
Fill clean beautiful bedding sets. Attach the ends to the bed corners. If an incontinence guard is used, place it in the sheet. Roll the free edge of the zero toward you with the pad inside. Leave some slack. Press and put the zero under rolled dirty bedding and individual as far and safely as possible. Roll person to meet you at zero. Be careful under the cold-rolled plates; this may require extra power and also care with the person’s body. Step around the opposite side of the bed. Pull the dirty sheet from the bed; this will bring the clean, rolled sheet and incontinence pad along with it. Spread and then secure zero. Make any adjustments for comfort.
