Good Practice Points:

Make sure that the brakes are on the bed/trolley
before commencing a movement.
Make sure that the sheet is inserted correctly and
that the inner slippy surface is inside (not outside).
This can be confirmed by rubbing the sheet between both palms before insertion. Also, the product label and stitching should be on the outside so
as to maximise the frictionless quality of the sheet.
Insert the sheet by either log-rolling the patient/
client to one side (or top or bottom) or by asking
the client to assist by gently lifting their bottom off
the bed. This is the same technique for any insertion.
Wherever possible, ask/help the patient/client to
help themselves.
Remove the sheet by inserting your hand between
both layers of the roller slide sheet and invert by
withdrawing the furthest bottom edge through the
middle of the sheet. This effectively peels the sheet
out without creating any shearing effects.

Our roller slide sheets are available

in any size that you require. For our
standard sizes, and for advice on
the best size and type of sheet to
suit your needs, please call our
