Emphasising patient comfort, dignity, and effective communication, this course equips participants with the ability to create a welcoming and hygienic setting that enhances patient outcomes.

The course delves into the nuanced process of making a hospital bed, covering the disposal of soiled linen, the application of clean bed linen, and the re-positioning of existing bed linen to cater to the specific needs of patients.

This involves adjusting the bed to a suitable height, securing brakes, and organising bed equipment and aids to ensure patient safety and comfort. By completing this course, healthcare and hotel staff will gain a comprehensive understanding of bed types, the importance of maintaining patient dignity, and the principles of infection control and patient-centred care, preparing them to work effectively in their respective health or hospitality premises.
