When some people get out of bed, if they are wearing compression stockings, they may be in danger of slipping. The Non-Slip Bed Slipper for Compression Stockings can be worn in bed over compression stockings so patients are less likely to slip if they are walking on wood, vinyl or tiles or even if they are trying to find their normal slippers.
The Non-Slip Bed Slippers are made from a very strong, but fine breathable material. The heel section does not have any seams or stitching, to help protect the patient from bed sores.
Depending on the design of the patient’s normal slippers they may be able to put their slippers on over the Pelican Non-Slip Bed Slippers.
It is important that the nurses regularly inspect the Non-Slip Bed Slippers during the day and night, as a restless patient may dislodge them. This important instruction should be added to the patient’s Care Plan.
Put the foot into the Non-Slip Bed Slipper with the toes in as far as possible and pull the heel section over the heel. Secure the Hook & Loop Tape around the ankle and cut to length. The two side sections can then be folded over the foot and secured with the Hook & Loop Tape tabs.
