Four out of the five beds were using the paper-based head sheets that you’ve probably seen a hundred times before — they have either an x-cut or a cut-out circle in the middle for a client's face to go through. Neither of these options fully cover the inner surface of the face hole, where a client may cough, spit or salivate during therapy.
