What is a Patient Sling?

Time:2017-10-23   Source:Nice Healthcare

The Full Body Patient Sling is the most commonly used sling for transferring patients. Consult your sling manual on how to fold the sling before placing under patient. Folding the sling makes for less work. The Patient Sling wraps around the thighs and back to give the patient a secure feeling and prevent patients from sliding out of the sling.
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS For Most Patient Slings:

Machine wash with warm or cold water. Air dry or use very low heat in a dryer. DO NOT USE BLEACH. Do not wash with other colors. If it is a two piece patient sling that comes with the metal bars the bars and seat hangers of the two-piece slings are not removable. It is recommended that these be hand washed.)

Applying the Patient Sling From Lying Position:

    Roll patient so they are resting on their side. Place the folded sling behind patient's back and roll patient onto their back and the sling.
    Pull the leg loops forward and under the thigh.

Patient Lift Transfer from the Bed:

    With the legs of the base open and locked, use the steering handle to push the patient lift into position. The cradle should be located just over the patient.
    Lower the patient lift to easily attach the sling to their respective sides of the cradle.

    Pump the lift handle (manual) or press the UP button (electric) to raise the patient above the bed. The patient should be elevated high enough to clear the bed with their weight fully supported by the lift. (View Detail A)

    NOTE: On manual lifts, the boom will stay in position until the control valve is opened. On the electric lifts, the boom will stay in position until the DOWN button is pressed.
    Patient Lift Transfer from the Bed
    When the patient is clear of the bed surface, gently turn patient so their legs dangle off side off the bed.  Lower bed if you need more clearance.
    When moving the patient lift away from the bed, turn the patient so that he/she faces the caregiver operating the patient lift and is centered over the base of the lift. (View Detail B)
    Press the DOWN button (electric) or open the control valve (manual) lowering patient so that his feet rest on the base of the lift, straddling the mast. Close the control valve if using a manual lift. (View Detail C)

NOTE: The lower center of gravity provides stability making the patient feel more secure and the lift easier to move.

    Pull the patient lift away from the bed and then push it from behind with both hands firmly on the steering handle.
