Bed Slide Sheet – Single Patient Use (Disp) (10 Pack)
$105.00 AUD – $152.00 AUD
- Important Information
The Pelican Disposable Bed Slide Sheets are made from the same strong material that the normal Royal Blue Slide Sheets are made from. They can be used as a disposable Bed Slide Sheet. To reduce the cost of the Slide Sheets we have not cut off the selvage on both sides. The selvage (US English) or selvedge (British English) is the term for the self-finished edges of fabric made when the material is constructed. The selvage keeps the fabric from unravelling or fraying, but looks unfinished with the loose fibres exposed.
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. Then use your body weight 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. Practise with work colleagues to become proficient before using with patients.
These Single Patient Use Disposable Sheets should be used with only one patient. They can be washed and reused with the same patient and then disposed of in accordance with your facility’s guidelines. Before using make sure the material has not been weakened by over use or washing.
This low cost item is complementary to our Bed Roller Sheet and the Slide & Turn 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. The Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet is also available which uses a hoist to do the turning.

The Sheets come in a pack of 10.

General Manual Handling Warning: Manual Handling products are designed to assist carers to help patients. They will not make the carer stronger or fitter, but with correct training and use of the products, should make manual handling easier and safer for both staff and patients. When training, practise with an able-bodied colleague. If any procedure is not comfortable or is difficult and puts the carer or patient in a dangerous position, the participants should call out to stop the manoeuvre, recover and recommence. Never jeopardise your health by straining, twisting or being incorrectly positioned when manual handling. Always select the most appropriate equipment for the patient’s current condition and if in doubt, use mechanical equipment. Ask your Manual Handling adviser for individual guidance.
The International Standard ISO/TR 12296:2012 - Ergonomics - Manual handling of people in the healthcare sector states that a roll or sliding sheet and an electric height-adjustable bed must be used.
