EMERGENCY LIFTING / Collapsed patient Management
The Emergency Lifting Sheet offers the ultimate falls management solution for transporting an injured person from the site of a car accident or other emergency.
No stretcher hoist? No way to lift a person safely? Look after your staff and patients by providing them with this inexpensive lifting sheet, designed to protect both patients and health professionals during lifting procedures.
The Emergency Lifting Sheet is a lightweight falls management solution, ideal for use when health professionals need to raise someone from the floor in a horizontal position. Designed in conjunction with the Guidelines for Safer Handling during Resuscitation in Healthcare Settings, the lifting sheet is perfect for post-resuscitation transfers where a stretcher hoist is not available to move the patient from the floor onto a bed or trolley.
Strong, robust, fully waterproof and fire-retardant, this falls management sheet offers maximum security and is suitable for patients who weigh up to 150kg (23.6 stone). Eight people are required to lift a patient in the lifting sheet.
Wash the Emergency Lifting Sheet at 74°C for three minutes to ensure optimal hygiene.
Hospital Direct stocks the Emergency Lifting Sheet in three sizes to suit all standard trolleys and beds. If you need advice about the Emergency Lifting Sheet or Hospital Direct’s other accident and emergency equipment, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
