Patient slide sheets for safe patient transfer and repositioning.
Patient slide sheets are specifically manufactured sheets or fabric designed to assist in repositioning and transferring patients with limited mobility. Slide sheets are made of low-friction materials, such as nylon or satin, that reduce friction and make it easier to move the patient. They have handles or straps that carers can use to grip and pull, allowing for controlled and smooth movement of the patient. Patient slide sheets minimise the effort required for transfers, reducing the risk of strain or injury for both the carer and the patient. Patient slide sheets are mainly used in healthcare settings such as care homes to promote safe and efficient patient moving and handling.
