1-15. PLACTIC SLIDE-BOARD IN LIEU OF DRAW SHEET
In some hospitals, a plastic slide-board is used in lieu of the draw sheet (figure
1-34). The slide-board (with a sheet on top) is placed under the patient. The slide-
board has three handholds on each side that are built into the board. These handholds
are grasped by the movers to accomplish the move. Using the slide-board requires less
effort because the surface is smoother and, thus, produces less friction. The board,
itself, is thin, slightly pliable, and very lightweight. It is a little wider and longer than the
