This Slide Board is used for sliding patients from a bed to a trolley, to bridge a small gap of about 15cm. between the bed/trolley. This plastic board is like our Slide Board - Trolley, Item 585, except this Slide Board has six cut out hand slots. The hand slots can be used to hold the Slide Board still, while sliding the patient across from a bed to a trolley. To Use: Simply use the draw sheet to roll the patient on to their side with their back facing towards the trolley. While on their side, place the Slide Board under the draw sheet and the patient, with the grooves facing downwards and the smooth side on top. The board should be under the patient?s head down to under the thighs. When the patient is returned to their back, they should have at least 3/4 of their length lying on top of the board. Put the trolley next to the bed and apply the brakes to the bed and the trolley. The grooves should be on the bottom. These are to help stop the Slide Board from moving when sliding the patient. Ensure the trolley is not higher than the bed. If the trolley is a little lower than the bed this will make the transfer even easier. If possible try to move the trolley mattress over the gap between the bed and the trolley before pulling the patient across. The draw sheet should be draped across the trolley and then one or more nurses should pull the draw sheet with the patient across to the trolley. When pulling, one or two nurses should hold the sheet aligned to the patient?s hip and shoulder. If necessary, a nurse can transfer the patient?s feet and another can guide the head. However if a bed sheet is used instead of a draw sheet, then the patient?s feet will be moved at the same speed as the hips and shoulders. After moving the patient across, roll the patient on their side again to remove the slide board.
