describe safe use of aids and equipment
Firstly the individuals care plan should be read in order to identify any risks and which equipment or aids are in use. [ If an individual sleeps or sits on an airflow mattress or cushion these would have been initially installed by a trained professional. It is important that these are kept at the correct pressure for each individual’s needs which can be easily adjusted. Using a slide sheet to
help reposition someone should be done by 2 carers or more if stated in the individuals care plan.
