Ensure patient’s waterlow assessment is up to date.


  • Use manual handling aids to minimise risk of friction and shear
  • Patients/ clients on any form of pressure redistribution equipment still require skin inspection and regular repositioning
  • Provide suitable seating including pressure redistribution cushions, if required, encourage repositioning/mobilisation where possible
  • Acutely ill patients/ clients are seated out for no longer than 2 hours and returned to bed for no less than 1 hour
