TEDS are for BEDS?
- 0Mar 23, '07 by FabyHi Guys: I've just taken the WCEI wound care course. the overall of the course was very good. Except for one single information they gave. Tehy stated that TED stockins should only be used in BED? i don't really get it. Tehy didn't explained that much. So far, all my residents have an order that reads, TED stockins On at AM; OFF at 8PM.Does anybody has any clue on this? thank you

Nursing home residents wear them for years. If you can't convince doctors that the much more expensive Jobst type stockings are better, at least be sure they get new TEDS every other month.
