patient transfer sheet / emergency transfer sheet
Hospital Direct’s washable Patient Transfer Sheet enables users to transfer from one sitting surface to another independently.
Patients who are recovering from injuries or surgery can find it frustrating to rely on carer assistance when moving between beds, chairs, wheelchairs and car seats. But patients can now regain their independence with a washable Patient Transfer Sheet. Users can spread these sheets over a transfer board to slide themselves between sitting surfaces.
The low-friction emergency transfer sheet features an anti-slip panel to prevent slipping as patients transfer either independently or with a helping hand from a carer. Where carer support is necessary, the sheet design prevents carers from needing to reach and stretch and instead encourages safe posture.
To use the Patient Transfer Sheet, place the sheet on top of your board and tuck it under your bottom. You’ll then be able to slide from your current surface to a new one and remove the transfer board for next time.
You can wash each emergency transfer sheet between uses to uphold cleanliness and infection control protocols. Alternatively, we also stock disposable Transfer Board Slides for high-turnover areas where staff need to increase patient throughput.
If you need more advice about the washable Transfer Board Slide, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
