Consult your facility’s Infection Control Department, as they may override our instructions. After each use, both sides of the Sling should be wiped clean with hospital grade disinfectant and then dried. To help with infection control, the webbing used is a very tight knit, seatbelt‚ webbing that is easy to wipe clean. Webbing is necessary to take the weight of the patient’s hips. We recommend having Slings for each patient to prevent any cross infection.
