    You can use "in bed" or "on her bed", not "on bed".
    If she is lying on top of the covers, she is lying on her bed.
    If she has the covers pulled over her, she is "in bed".

    Hi Raymott

    If she is lying on top of the covers, is it correct to leave out lying i.e "She is on her bed."? She might sit on the bed.

    Thanks.
