Pibella is a very advantageous for patients with back problems, adipose patients and elderly women that are confined to bed and have difficulty turning.
While using Pibella these patients have less pain and less hassle then when the bedpan is used. Because of the ease of use it is also very beneficial and a help during night shifts.
Important are clear instructions to the patient; depending on the person, the caregiver may have to help placing the device initially.
Often the bedpan is offered because of routine, and the staff is not yet very familiar with this new product, so this needs to change.
Thanks to Pibella, a bedridden woman can finally get rid of the uncomfortable bedpan.
