When working as a surgeon, you need something that you don't need to reuse but still has good qualities to help make the operation easier. With good disposable protective sheets you can prevent leakage and body liquids from staining and ruining clothes, beds and various other things. You'll mostly see them used in elderly homes and hospitals, though you may see them used with children as well, mainly those struggling with incontinence. The main feature of these sheets is, obviously, the absorption to help keep said leaks and liquids from causing a mess or damage. As have already been mentioned, you will often see this in a medical setting and are generally laminated as well as being made to be resilient. The disposable protective sheets need to withstand operations and even childbirth without tearing. Though those used for other settings are generally still of good quality and made to endure whatever it needs to be used for.
Disposable for good hygiene
The disposable protective sheets are but one of many disposable products used for hygiene and protection in medical environments, made to be used with ease without requiring cleaning them while maintaining a high degree of quality on the items you use. Aprons, bibs, towels and wash cloths are often onetime, disposable things that you can make use of and not have to be concerned about washing any of it afterwards. It helps keep up a high level of hygiene as well as reducing risk of infection and spreading of diseases.
