This article is written from personal experience, although a technique I had wished to pick up sooner. The hope and goal is to save you that time and The example patient is a harder case where the person is in a great deal of chronic pain, and this makes it hard to help in turning because of the person's sensitivity to touch.In this case we were also using 36" x 36" bed reusable pads, and I began to help the person using the pad, spreading out the pressure on their body equally in the pad by holding with two hands and lifting straight up, standing in a good stable position with feet about shoulder-width.
Careful the first time or two you do this as the patient will seem lighter than usual to you.You are using your body in a more safe and stable way and using both hands to control the pad pressure as you lift, and also benefit by significantly increased leverage. This little trick works most credibly well in comfort for the patient, safety and sanitation.Once the person is on their side just let the pad back down and perform the task at hand.
Depending on other uses due to patient's needs, a few washable urinary pads will go a long way! You can pick up some quality reusable bed liners from Behrens Southern Comfort's on line catalog, and they will deliver them to your door, usually next day in the USA.For international shipments they require use of Bongo. Bongo is recommended as it it is a very secure and dependable way to get your order delivered outside the United States.
