I cant list all the problems I am having getting used to putting mom on the bed pan. Two months ago she had a stroke on the right side of her brain, making the left leg very weak and she is unable to make it to the bedside commode yet.We are working with PT to get her to use her strong right side, but that is in the future. Poor mom must put up with me until then and I continue to spill the bed pan, or cannot seem to place it correctly under her. Please if you have any pointers feel free to send me the info. Currently we are using the bed pan that is shaped like the cowboy hat, and slprinkled with corn startch to slide in and out better. Is there an exact science to this ? Pls help !
