Anyone know if you need the XL Twin sheets for a hospital bed?

My SIL is having a hospital bed put in her home during a rehab period from a hip replacement and needs some sheets. I assume they use twin sheets for them, but unsure if I need to get the XL like is used for dorm beds since raising the leg area might require more fabric. Does anybody work at a hospital or know anyone that has one that might be able to help? Thanks!

the jersey sheets will work also. May be a bit softer, since many of the dorm bed sheets are a low thread count.

You can probably get a good deal on some since a lot of stores stock them for back to college times. I got a great deal on some at Overstocks for my DS18's college bed so that is a good place to look if you can't find any left in the stores.

Thanks....you're right. They are on Sale! Marshall's had some 310 count, which isn't the best, but better than 200 on clearance for $15 per set. I will keep my eyes out for better ones.

I think the ones I got DS were 450 count-they are very soft but not so soft they are slippery. The jersey sheets someone mentioned might not be a good idea because they are harder to move around in, especially if she has hip issues. They are comfy though.

No, Overstocks.com. They had a really good selection of XL twins.

The beds at cedars-sinai use regular twin sheets. I have to have my own sheets whenever I am in the hospital because I breakout from the hospital sheets and we always just bring my sheets from home which are regular twin sheets.

Do you have any twin sheets that you could try on the bed to see if they fit before going out and buying new sheets? That way you know exactly what you need.

Call the DME that is supplying the bed and ask them.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, she lives out of town so I can't try any. I ended up getting the XL before some of you posted that you use regular ones. I mailed them today, so maybe she can still use them. I hope so!

Better too long than not long enough!

The hospital bed that we had for my Mom used regular sheets.
