"Hospital Direct's single base sheets and 3/4 top sheets were added to the our counties equipment catalogue recently. As well as being cost effective, they are soft and durable. The customer service received from Hospital Direct is excellent. The representatives are available to provide quotes for special orders and for assessments." Clinical Advisor
"Currently, these in-situ slide sheets deliver the best value to community equipment services." Clinical Product Manager
"The top sheet is well made, works well in practice, with a good level of manoeuvrability when used with the 2 way base sheet. As a result, it has become the preferred product with a number of community equipment services." Product Manager
"The base sheet has proved to be effective in helping individuals maintain independence, where possible, and also works very well with a top sheet when greater levels of support are required for manual handling. This has been supported by feedback we have received from clinicians and contracts that use this product." Product Evaluator
"The Sheets were of good quality and had the right amount of slide to afford in-bed movement". Independent Occupational Therapist
"The SIBA Sheets were very easy to fit and very comfortable to be moved on and to reposition others" Independent Occupational Therapist and Moving & Handling Advisor/Trainer

IN-Bed system / patient management / satin sheets

These Satin SIBA 2 way base sheets allow users to comfortably reposition themselves in bed without slipping.

Hospital Direct precision-manufactures the Satin SIBA fully fitted base sheets with central satin sliding panels so that users can turn from side to side in bed without slipping. Designed for patient comfort, each slide sheet also has polycotton striped edges so that patients can’t slide off the bed and injure themselves.

Markers on the in-situ slide sheet indicate which way up the sheet should be placed on the bed, and a central marker helps carers to ensure correct positioning. Plus, the drawstring tightening system on each long side of the satin sheet system allows carers to fit the sheet to any mattress. Two vent holes in each bottom corner of the satin slide sheet allow carers to attach air hoses to dynamic mattresses.

The 2 way satin sheets are available in full or midi lengths to suit individual requirements and have deep skirts to fit any mattress depth.

Independent Use

Hospital Direct’s 2-way base sheets are perfect for those who struggle to move around in bed and get in and out of bed independently. With the satin sheets in place, the user can lie comfortably on the base sheet throughout the night.

Single Carer

Alternatively, the fully fitted base sheets also form an integral part of our SIBA Satin Sliding System and are suitable for those who need a single carer to help them reposition in bed. Where a user needs support, this Satin In-Bed System allows carers to couple the base sheet with a top draw sheet so that the two satin panels slide together and enable easy patient movement.

The 2 way base sheets are available in a range of sizes to suit all bed types. Plus, the satin panel can be either central or offset, which is often ideal for larger beds. Hospital Direct also offers bespoke in-bed satin systems, so please enquire if you can’t find the solution you are looking for.
