Put on a pair of gloves. Determine if the patient has been incontinent or if excess drainage is on linen. Lower side rails. Raise bed to comforable working position. Remove solid linen, and place in laundry bag. Wipe down any moisture using a washcloth moistened in antiseptic solution, dry throughly. Apply all bottom linen on one side of bed before moving to opposite side. Make sure fitted sheet is smoothly on mattress. Place a draw sheet which should be centered in the middle of the bed. Place one or two pads down. Put a top sheet down. Place a blanket down. Put a pillow case on the pillow and place at top of bed. Place call light within patients reach. Discard supplies.
