1 Presented by: Jonna Bobeck BSN, RN, CEN

2  Used to assist with lateral transfers and repositioning  Radiolucent and artefact free  Fewer staff required for transfer and decrease in injuries  Air perforations on the underside reduce friction

3  Patients unable to assist in their own lateral transfer  Patients whose weight or girth poses a potential health risk for the caregivers responsible for repositioning or laterally transferring said patients

4  Patients who are experiencing thoracic, cervical or lumbar fractures who are diagnosed as unstable, unless in conjunction with a spinal board on top of the Hovermatt mattress

5  Caregivers must verify that bed is securely locked prior to transfer  Additional caregivers are recommended when moving patients over 750lbs/340kg  Do not attempt to move a patient on an un- inflated mattress  Route the power cord as to not pose a tripping hazard  Avoid blocking air intakes of the air supply unit  NEVER leave the patient unattended on an inflated mattress  ALWAYS use at least two people during patient transfer

6  When using the Hovermatt in the MRI environment, a 25 foot specialty hose is required!!

10  Patient should be horizontal  Place HoverMatt underneath patient  Plug air supply into outlet  Insert hose  Turn on air Supply  Grasp handles and pull at an angle  Ensure the patient is centered  Press standby

11  Mattress:  Reusable constructed with nylon twill  Between use wipe with 100:1 bleach solution  May be laundered for heavy soiling  Air Supply:  In between patient uses, the Air Supply can be cleaned by wiping down using a damp cloth with soap and water or mild neutral detergent. Dry using a clean, dry cloth or disposable paper towel  DO NOT spray cleaners or liquids directly on the Air Supply

12  Visually inspect  Make sure all handles are intact  Inspect for tears or holes  Remove from use if any damage is found

13  Seams are heat sealed  Offers a stain and fluid proof surface  May use sheet on top of mattress  Employ same protocols for isolation patient
