The PATRAN is the original, disposable slide sheet for safe-patient handling.
Slide to Safety
The PATRAN is a no-lift product. Health care workers can save their backs and prevent workplace strains and injuries by sliding their patient with a PATRAN. The PATRAN reduces friction and provides a slippery, yet safe and comfortable surface to help move patients. As a single-patient-use product, the PATRAN also helps with infection control.
Boost Your Results
Show your employees a commitment to their safety and wellness by implementing PATRAN as part of a safe patient handling program. Most health caregiver injuries come from boosting or repositioning a patient in bed or performing a lateral transfer. The PATRAN can stay with a patient throughout their hospital stay from the moment they arrive in the emergency department (or even from the moment the paramedics arrive at their home) to radiology, cath lab or surgery and onto the patient room.
Reposition Your Organization to
One Committed to Safety
Repositioning patients and lateral transfer are just the beginning of the tasks that can become easier with a PATRAN. Getting a patient out of bed to the bathroom, rehabilitation exercises, moving fallen patients or arranging linens and slings without skin shear are just some of the more advanced applications that caregivers will find with PATRAN slide technology.
New Product News
The makers of the PATRAN® slide sheet are introducing a slick new product, SlideShield, for the radiology department.
Protect x-ray cassettes from bodily fluids and prevent cross-infection with SlideShield cassette covers. The single-patient-use product is made of a recyclable plastic, which is latex-free and contains an anti-stat.
The clear bags are slippery to make it easier to get the portable x-ray cassette under a patient. Used in conjunction with a PATRAN, the slip is increased exponentially and the RAD tech has a much easier task inserting a portable cassette. An increasing number of radiology workers are reporting back, neck, shoulder and arm injuries associated with inserting a cassette..
