The Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet is a great way of getting a hoist to do the turning, rather than the Carer. This is especially beneficial with heavy patients.
- Remains under a sleeping patient between turns
- Use a trolley hoist or ceiling hoist to do the turning
- Soft, breathable, slippery material
- Strong tape reinforcing and webbing straps
- Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet; Our standard design with webbing loop attachments. It is sewn in a cylinder so you effectively end up with one slippery sheet on top of another.
- Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet with Keyhole Plates: Based on the Slide & Turn Hoist Top Sheet, but with keyhole plate attachments for tilt frame hoists.
- Slide & Turn Hoist Top Sheet: A budget option which is a single sheet only. We recommend using a standard Bed Slide Sheet underneath to get a nice slippery surface. This may not always be necessary depending on the weight of the patient.
- Slide & Turn Hoist Top Keyhole Sheet: Based on the Slide & Turn Hoist Top Sheet, but with keyhole plate attachments for tilt frame hoists.
Pressure Care/Skin Integrity
The only adverse comments we have had about this product is regarding potential problems when leaving the patient on the Hoist Sheet overnight. Please remember the original Slide & Turn Sheet has been used in this manner for several years. We have not had any comments about them affecting the patient’s skin or any pressure problems. As it is now possible to use a hoist to turn the patient, it will be even easier to turn large patients minimising any manual handling injury to the Carers.
Even air regulated mattresses may have plastic sheets, urine absorbent pads and normal cotton sheets on top of the air mattress. These may reduce the benefits of the mattress, but they are still necessary for hygiene and skin integrity. If the Hoist Sheet is used there will be minimal touching of the patient compared to turning manually.
Some facilities deflate the air mattress when turning a patient as this will make the turning easier. After turning, the air is inflated again.

General Keyhole Plate Sling Information: Click here for general information, including filing down Keyhole Plates which are too tight. This advice is applicable for the version of this product which uses Keyhole Plates.
Warning: Inspect slings before every use. If any damage is found the Sling must be withdrawn from service and repaired, if possible.
Warning: If you are leaving a sling made in the All Day Sling material under a person, always ensure that there will be no adverse pressure care issues. This includes checking that the attachment method (e.g. webbing loops, keyhole plates, etc.), are not positioned in such a way that may hurt the person. The actual material is very thin and it should not cause a pressure problem, but patients’s skin integrity should be regularly checked, just in case the sling is causing a pressure problem. If there are any early signs of pressure problems, discontinue using this design of sling.
Disposal: When the Sling is ready for disposal, we suggest the Lifting Straps are cut off, so it cannot be used with another patient.
