Why is positioning important?

Providing stability through effective positioning is crucial to maximising the comfort and well-being of a patient or service user. Patient positioning also plays an important part in healing and prevents against pressure ulcers and skin damage. Care situations where positioning is of particular importance include where a patient:

  • spends long periods in bed;
  • has reduced mobility;
  • has pressure ulcers or is at risk of pressure ulcers;
  • requires personal care tasks to be carried out in bed; or
  • is restless or unstable.

A safer environment for the care giver is also achieved as tasks can be carried out more effectively and efficiently.
