Going to the Bathroom or Not

While I was still in the hospital during the delivery of my daughter, I saw this equipment they called bedpan that they let me use in the first two days every time I’m going to pee. I am a bit uncomfortable using the bedpan but I don’t have any choice since it is still so hard to get up and go to the bathroom. Then it made me wonder what would happen for those patients who just came from surgery of broken bones.
I cannot imagine them using a fracture type bedpan and how they are going to deal with it. The discomfort that I endure that time is nothing compare to what they have had. They may have been taking some pain killers but I could not say if they are comfortable with it than the regular western commode. Although this kind of bedpan has a tapered end designed purposely for added patient comfort.

Nowadays, there are already more changes made to the design of this contraption bearing in mind not only the patient comfort but also the ergonomic capability. Some are made of biodegradable plastic with barrier protection from waste and in eliminating the possibility of splashing and spills that will also decreases the likelihood of infection contamination.
