In medical terminology, a draw sheet is placed under a patient in a bed so that the sheet can be removed without lifting the patient. When it is time to place a clean sheet under a patient, a nurse or more likely a nurse’s aide, rolls the patient from one side of the bed to the other side of the bed while the soiled sheet is removed and replaced with a clean sheet.
In many institutions today, draw sheets are no longer made from linen or cotton. Instead they are made from paper and plastic pads, similar to disposable diapers.
