Slide sheets are used to reposition people on a bed, chair etc., and saves having to drag a patient.

They’re patient dependent and make sure not to pass between patients otherwise infection control can be an issue.

When sliding someone on a bed make sure to cover the whole body or it could result in sheering problems and tissue damage. If you only have small sizes you can use multiple sheets to cover all areas.
