Use Bed Slide Sheets to "Log Roll" or reposition Patients
Red 'Q' Slide Sheets are very quiet when in use – a virtual 'silent night' for the patients. The Light Blue 'B' Slide Sheets are made from the same quiet material as the Red 'Q' but just a different colour. Another feature of this material is that it is breathable. This is very important with other items we make from this material like the Slide & Turn Sheet, when the patient sleeps directly on top of the material. This breathable material helps prevent perspiration, even in hot weather.
The Pink 'S' material is not breathable and has some noise when in use. This noise may disturb some patients. The noise decreases after the Pink 'S' Sheet has been washed several times.
To avoid a hem that may compromise skin integrity, the sheets have been heat sealed to help prevent fraying. If fraying occurs, the edges can either be cut with crimping scissors, or sewn with a hem.
To use: Simply fold the sheet in half and roll it under a patient, similar to fitting a draw sheet. When moving the patient, gather up the loose end of the top part of the sheet and use body weight and braced body to pull this to turn the patient (do not use excessive movements with your arms). Kylie sheets can be changed using the Bed Slide Sheet. When folded in half or using two sheets patients can be repositioned in beds or even in chairs. The Carers use their own body weight to move patients not just relying on the Carer's muscle power. Practice with work colleagues to become proficient before using with patients. This low cost item is complementary to our Item 501 Bed Roller Sheet and Item 509H Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet that are left permanently underneath the patient, to make the turning or moving up the bed, easier for the Carer with less disturbance to the patient as they eliminate 'log rolling'.
