What kinds of bedpans and urinals are there?

How do I help a person who can raise his buttocks (rear end) use a bedpan?

How do I help a person who cannot raise his buttocks to use a bedpan?

How do I clean the person after using the bedpan?

What should be done when placing the urinal?

What other cleaning needs to be done?

Using a bedpan

When girls use the bedpan to urinate, a "wick" can be made using several pieces of toilet paper to guide the stream of urine into the bedpan.
Make sure to dry the buttocks well after using the bedpan to prevent rashes.
Make sure the bed sheets or pants stay dry
