Prone positioning

Prone positioning with disposable sliding aids & slings
The World Health Organisation guidance regarding the management of Covid-19 patients1,
stresses the importance of using disposable or dedicated equipment wherever possible.

Disposable repositioning aids can reduce the risk of cross contamination and assist 
with repositioning the patient in bed, including turning to and from the prone position.

Alternatively, a single patient use repositioning sling in combination with a passive 
lift can help reduce the impact on carer workflow. 2
