A hospital bed pan consists of either stainless steel or durable plastic materials offered in single or bulk quantity. Stainless steel allows the bedpan to be reused by multiple patients after it's sanitized. Stainless steel is easily cleaned and sanitized but it has its setbacks since it can be cold to the touch, rigid and uncomfortable. Patients who are prone to pressure ulcers may opt to use newer styles made of durable polypropylene plastic that have more give and are ergonomically designed to put less stress on pressure points.

Disposable bedpans are plastic. Some may be reused after disinfected but used by only one patient. There are a variety of plastic bedpan styles to choose from. The Pontoon bedpan style has smooth edges with a wider front rim to hold onto for stabilization. The rim may also be helpful as a male bedpan. The design also allows for stacking when purchasing in bulk and need simplified storage.

Another type is the Fracture bedpan which features a tapered end and sometimes a handle to aid in easier placement of the bedpan which is helpful as a female bedpan or for patients who are immobile. The contoured design improves comfort to patient during use.

The majority of bedpans on the market will support up to a 300 pound patient. This Medline Bariatric bedpan is specifically made to be extra durable, constructed with graphite to support a weight capacity of 900 pounds.
