LESSON 3
CARING FOR THE PATIENT'S ENVIRONMENT

3-1. OVERVIEW

To provide safety and comfort of the patient, his unit should be cleaned in such a manner as to provide a safe and attractive environment. In addition, his bed should be made in a manner that provides comfort and appears neat and orderly. The bed is the center of activities for many patients in a hospital. The patient may be fed, bathed, and receive treatment in his bed; therefore, it should be made as clean and as pleasant as possible.
