Patient moving and handling is not a struggle with the solutions we manufacture

Ensure easy patient moving and handling in acute settings with a wide range of slide sheets that use an ultra-slippery material developed by Hospital Direct. We have pioneered our own specialist material, branded Slideezi® for better patient handling.

Healthcare professionals can use glide sheets to help them easily manoeuvre people into a virtually endless range of positions so they remain comfortable at all times, as well as ensuring safe patient moving and handling for staff, reducing the risk of injury.

Glide sheets with handles can also be used to transfer people safely from one surface to another, such as a bed to a trolley or vice versa, and make patient repositioning even easier as well as reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders.

A different variety of slide sheets are our Satin SIBA In-bed Management range; these luxuriously soft cotton and satin sheets offer maximum comfort and quietness, as well as technically advanced fibres give the satin glide sheet a slippery finish, ideal for repositioning a patient in a bed or trolley.

The Flexicare 4-Way In-Bed Management System can also be used to reposition patients in all directions without handling them, promoting dignity and easy patient turning while Hospital Direct’s bed positioning wedge can also be used to keep patients safe and secure by preventing falls out of bed.

For re-positioning of patients in bed who require longer-term care, Hospital Direct’s Disposable Slippy Mattress Cover reduces the constant need to insert Slide Sheets with the added benefit of less risk of back injury for staff working in the acute sector.

Back Care Products for Safe Moving and Handling

To ensure good back care which abides with the principles for safe moving and handling for patients, Hospital Direct’s Bed Positioning Wedge provides maximum support while in bed.

Once a healthcare professional has safely positioned a patient in their desired position, such as on their side, they can then relax with good back support in bed, helping to reduce pressure sores and skin irritation.

Hospital Direct recommends using the bed positioning wedge in conjunction with the SIBA Satin Sliding System, which enables patients to be safely repositioned. Then, using the foam bed positioning wedge to support the patient, the patient can lie on their side safely. The SIBA satin sheets’ anti-slip properties prevent the positioning wedge from slipping, guaranteeing user comfort and maximum back care in bed for the patient.
