Banana Versal Slide Sheet

The intended use of a Slide Sheet is to reduce the friction and shear during the task of moving and /or repositioning a patient on a surface; it also reduces the effort and reduces the manual handling risk of the staff undertaking these manoeuvres (Fray 2015). Prior to the use of a Slide Sheet a thorough risk assessment in line with local policy should be undertaken to identify and mitigate against potential risks. Principles of independent movement should be considered wherever possible (e.g. whether a patient can assist in the movement using the slide sheet).
