    4) Attach the Disposable Tri Turner Sling Straps to the Lift hooks. Start Lifting the Sling.

    Make sure the Lift hooks are parallel to the patient’s back Side. Cross or straighten legs before turning.

    Note: Support the Patient while turning. Support Patient’s back with pillow when giving bath.

    6) After completing turning of the patient, lower the sling. Remove the Vel- cro loop and hook from the bed frame and fasten it onto itself before you pull it out from underneath the patient.

    “ As with all patient handling slings, Waverley Glen recom-

    mends that the slings be inspected on a regular basis for signs of

    abnormal wear and tear. Please refer to Waverley Glens’ Sling

    Inspection Checklist. Disposable or Patient Specific slings are

    designed such that laundry is not required or allowed. Therefore

    the sling should be disposed of anytime there is visible soiling

    of the sling, and replaced with a new disposable/patient specific

    sling. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the

    integrity of a sling you should err on the side of caution and no

    longer use the sling in question. Please contact your Waverley

    Glen representative should you have any further questions.
