The female urinating device Pibella is a wonderful alternative

In terms of nursing care, Pibella definitely proves to be a wonderful alternative. A friend of mine brought my attention to Pibella and asked me – I am a nursing care expert at a surgical ward – if we could also include Pibella in our range of products. After observing the usage procedure on the Internet, I was immediately interested and therefore ordered one.

After receiving the product, I tested it and immediately realised that I felt secure using Pibella, despite the fact that one or two trials in an undisturbed environment are necessary. The small, anatomical docking orifice is perfect, even though this may be hard to believe at first. Equipped with this new knowledge, I visited all the team meetings of our six wards and showed Pibella to the nurses. It is now available in all our wards.

A majority of the nurses wanted to experience Pibella themselves, which led them to order one for their own private use. Due to their own enthusiasm, they were able to overcome any inhibition whatsoever and thus present Pibella to the patients as well as explain its advantages to them! Patients who use Pibella are very happy and grateful because they are able to relieve themselves in an independent, intimate and comfortable manner. They are glad that they do not have to use the cold and uncomfortable bedpan. Apart from the patient satisfaction, the nurses are now able to protect their backs during work – notably in the case of obese patients who do not have to be lifted anymore. Furthermore, only one nurse is now needed to assist a patient to relieve him- or herself – something that is normally impossible when using a bedpan. It is also important to mention the fact that the risk of falling is also reduced. From my point of view, I am really glad that I didn’t have to do without Pibella during my mountain trekking trip in Thailand! It is clear to me that Pibella is an ingenious product and a major achievement for women!
