The Cambridge Dictionary defines the commode as a piece of furniture that looks like a chair but has a container in the seat that people who are ill or old can use as a toilet. The term has its origins in French and dates back to the 1700s. However, over the years, a commode has evolved, and now it is one of the most important pieces of equipment for those who are recuperating from an injury and for the elderly who find it difficult to walk to the bathroom.
Medical commodes are now a major player in the toilet game. Practical, efficient, and evolved, they are more comfortable than ever before. While most of the commodes are made of heavy-duty plastic, some models are reinforced with metal parts to make them stable and durable. There are many different styles available depending on your needs including elevated seats, that are of huge help to people who have challenges with mobility.
The key factors to consider while buying a commode are
- Easy to clean
How do I help someone use a bedside commode?
We begin by gathering supplies. You will need
- Disposable gloves
- Toilet paper, wipes
- Container with warm water
Help a person use the commode:
- Lock the wheels of the commode.
- Make sure the container is under the seat.
- Put a small amount of water in the container before it is used. This makes it easier to clean the container later.
- Help the person out of bed and onto the commode. Use a gait belt if needed.
- Stay with the person for safety, or give them a bell to ring when they are done or need help.
When the person is done:
- Put on a pair of disposable gloves.
- Help the person to stand.
- Use toilet paper, wipes, or soap and water to help the person clean their genital area or bottom. Gently towel dry.
- Help the person wash and dry his hands.
- Help the person back to bed.
- Remove the container and take it to the bathroom. Put the toilet seat up and empty the container into the toilet.
Clean the container with a toilet brush, germ-killing cleanser, and water. Rinse well and put the container back under the commode. Remove your gloves and dispose of them.
