Care Environment: Professional Care
Client: Janet A, Occupational Therapist
for a lady where we needed three carers to roll her which was an extremely painful and frightening process for her. Additionally, she had skin problems on her back and her GP wanted her to come off her Topsheet and Wendylett system.
…More importantly, the client was calm throughout and the carers reported that for the first time in ten years she did not call out or say a word (we even rolled her to prone lying).
The huge advantage is that it is smooth and that it supports the whole of the body. Carers are able to move her at the touch of a button and it only requires guidance to move her up the bed…
