Repositioning Moving higher up or turning in bed
Shorter transfers in bed are often called repositioning, and are very common operations in many care situations.
The task of turning or moving a patient higher up in bed is one of the most dangerous in healthcare. Studies show that repositioning is a leading cause of caregiver work-related injuries. Liko® offers several special aids to assist in this common care situation.
