Definition : Devices used to cover the surface of a bed and/or operating and examination table. Sheets consist of broad rectangular pieces of fabric serving as basic articles of bedding and are made of woven (e.g. cotton and/or polyester, sateen) and nonwoven materials (e.g., tissue, paper). Some sheets are specifically made to fit adjustable beds and/or operating and examination tables and have wings and anchor straps designed to keep the sheets tucked in and tightly fitted. They are widely used in healthcare facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, medical offices, and at home. Dedicated sheets intended for examination and/or operating room tables and for patient beds are also available.
