Solving Patient Handling Injuries With Air

Solving Patient Handling Injuries With Air

While working in a hospital can be a very rewarding career, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your own personal health to live it. Common nursing injuries happen from performing patient repositioning tasks and lateral transfers every day. These patient handling injuries are completely avoidable when the appropriate equipment is routinely accessible and available for hospital staff members to use.

What Are Air Assisted Transfer Systems?

Air assisted transfer systems have been around for some time now and are found in most major hospitals and healthcare systems.  They are essentially an inflatable mattress that allows air to escape through tiny holes on the underside that create a thin cushion of air to reduce friction and float the patient. Whenever you need to do a lateral transfer or even reposition a patient in their bed, you can simply inflate the mattress with air. This helps to boost the patient off the surface of the bed and allows for easy sliding of the mattress from one surface to another or simply further up to the head of the bed. While variations of these air assisted transfer systems are produced by other medical companies, SPH Medical offers the breathable Single Patient Use Air Transfer Mattress.

The SPH Medical Single Patient Use Air Transfer Mattress

The SPH Medical Single Patient Use Air Transfer Mattress is specifically designed to help make lateral transfers and repositioning effortless for both nursing staff and patients alike. Compliant with Safe Patient Handling Programs and Policies, this disposable transfer mat greatly works to reduce the risk of hospital infections and cross-contamination. Additionally, it helps to reduce the amount of laundry your hospital must clean. No longer will you have to run short on lateral transfer supplies for days or even weeks. With Single Patient Use Air Transfer Mattresses, you can always have a ready-to-go supply for when your patients need them.

Greatly Reduce Patient Handling Injuries

With nursing shortages becoming the norm, having nurses out due to patient handling injuries can further wear down those on staff. Air assisted transfer mats greatly help to reduce the amount of effort it takes for the nursing staff to move patients. Unlike draw sheet or sliding board transfers, air transfer mats minimize friction to make every transfer or repositioning attempt safe for everyone. When you’re able to utilize these air powered transfer systems, you can help drastically eliminate many manual patient handling tasks. Instead of worrying about potentially undergoing a repositioning injury, you can focus more on patient care. And these single use mattresses are specifically designed to be breathable so they can be utilized under total care patients for extended periods of time.
