Urinal bottles and bed pans are containers used to collect urine or faeces. They're shaped to fit under a person lying or sitting in bed and can be made of metal, glass, ceramic, plastic, or moulded pulp.
Urinal bottles and bed pans can help with toileting when mobility is limited.
Someone who is unable to leave bed, or struggle to get to the bathroom from the bedroom in time may benefit from using a urinal bottle or bed pan instead.
There are a couple of things to consider before purchasing a bed pan or a urinal bottle. The first is whether or not you would prefer a washable or disposable receptacle. The second is whether or not you would need a lid for it or not. This will help to narrow down your options, so you find the right one for you.
