Family Health: Tips for the Sickroom
TIPS FOR THE SICKROOM
Plastic sick bag
If your patient feels as though he may be sick, put a dustbin liner in a wastepaper basket or bucket and keep it near him at all times. When the bag has served its purpose, tie a knot in the neck and drop it in the dustbin.
To prevent bedside-table crowding, hang a multi-pocketed shoe bag by the bed. It makes a handy holder for tissues, spectacles, combs, and all the other little things that a bedridden patient may need.
Covers too heavy on your feet?
Get a large cardboard box and cut out two sides. Put the box at the foot of the bed under the covers with your feet inside.
