The Evacuation Sheet is been designed to remain underneath the mattress, ready for rapid evacuation of patients or residents. In an emergency, it wraps around the patient, cocooning them within the mattress, to form a protective sledge. Drag loops at head and foot are used to rapidly tow the patient from the building. There are two alternative securing methods available to retain the evacuation sheet under the mattress 1. Velcro straps that secure the sheet to the bed frame. 2. Elastic straps that loop around each end of the mattress. In the event of soiling the evacuation sheet can easily be removed for laundering.
Capacity: Maximum patient weight 400kg.
In normal use your Evacuation Sheet does not require any maintenance. Periodic inspection is recommended periodically as accidental damage may have occurred. Attention should be given to stitching, webbing and fabric condition as degradation is possible over an extended period.

Laundering: Follow standard hospital laundry guidelines HSG (95)18. The use of bleaching agents should be avoided. Maximum recommended washing temperature 90° C. Drip dry, (if necessary a low temperature tumble dry may be used).

Instructions For Use:
INSTALLATION AND SET UP Remove mattress from the bed base and place the evacuation sheet completely flat over the bed base. Place the mattress/support surface over the evacuation sheet and refit the bed sheet. Pull the 4 elastic corners over the mattress making sure that they are easily accessible, and that the evacuation sheet is correctly supported.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE This evacuation sheet is to be used in conjunction with a standard foam mattress. Prior to the evacuation, pull straps from under the mattress and secure around the patient using the heavy-duty clips. We advise placing the patient's pillow across the chest to reduce the risk of any minor injuries during evacuation. Pull out the 2 pulling straps and the evacuation device is ready to be used
EVACUATION Evacuation is recommended with a minimum of 2 people, one at each end of the device. Holding the pulling straps firmly at the bottom of the bed, pull the device, turn it to the side of the mattress and then off the bed. The second person supports the head end as the mattress slides off. The first person then pulls the mattress to a safe area.
