An adult bib is simply a piece of material, plastic or fabric that provides protection from falling food on clothing. Adult bibs are sometimes referred to as clothing protectors, to maintain a level of respect and dignity for patients.
Adult bibs conveniently wrap around the neck and secure with a small piece of Velcro, a snap, or button. They cover the entire front of the body from the neck, falling down into the lap.
Adult bibs are generally easy to keep clean. The plastic/vinyl made adult bibs are easily wiped off with a damp cloth, making them extremely efficient for large groups of patients. The fabric-made adult bibs can be washed in a regular washing machine, hand washing them is not necessary. However, because of continual washing, fabric adult bibs may be less economical as they wear out much faster than their plastic made counterparts.
There are adult bibs that are designed for medical procedures. These adult bibs are generally made from a lightweight poly or tissue fabric. These types of adult bibs are not adequate for clothing protection when eating, but they can come in handy when delivering liquid medications. If the bib is poly-backed, it may be used when a patient is rinsing their mouths, or for oral hygiene protection.
