If the person is incontinent there is a possibility that they might soil the bed sheets and then the whole bed needs to be stripped and the sheets replaced.
The advantage of the Waterproof Blanket is that the patient can sleep on top of their bed during the day. If the Waterproof Blanket is placed on top of the bedspread the patient can sleep without soiling the bedspread. After the patient gets up again, the Waterproof Blanket can be wiped clean and taken off the bed. The weight of the Waterproof Blanket helps it to stay in place on the bed and minimizes creasing. If a normal sheet of vinyl is used without the inner material, the sheet can crease up under the patient and cause pressure sores.
If a patient is likely to urinate and soil top sheets, then using the Waterproof Blanket over the top of the patient may help protect the top sheets.
