Purchased at family dollar, I got a package of four elastic straps with clips (like to hold up stockings) on each end one strap for each corner to pull the sheet tighter. The package was about $2.

I have found it easier just to take a full flat sheet and tie the ends under the mattress on the bottom and the top, this makes it tight and smooth. I have learned a few tricks over the years as a cna. Hope this help!

The straps that rmagee29 isn't talking about work great. the sheets won't go anywhere with those on. You can also find them at Wal-Mart.

To help it keep from shifting have you tried large pieces of the rubbery waffle type non-slip stuff they carry in dollar stores, Wal-Mart, etc? They are used for various things such as shelf liner in RVs to keep things from shifting in transit. If you cut the squares so they don't interfere with the body (in the corners) it helps the sheets from shifting from normal use.

I use small pieces under items to keep them from slipping back when touched like under a radio, lamp, phone etc. It helps my mother a lot as she reaches for the item next to her chair or when she is in bed. You aren't playing "catch" all of the time

Drawstring sheets work really great on hospital beds since the drawstring can be tightened until there is no movement at all. The fit is unmatched since the drawstring can be tightened until it seems vacuum packed on the mattress. The bed can be adjusted up and down an unlimited amount of times with no movement. It is great for an immobile person who may not be able to straighten the sheet on their own. Also getting in and out of the bed is worry free since the sheet will not move.
