Figure 4-2. Supine position.
Figure 4-3. Sim's position.
(e) One example of a schedule for turning would be:
1000-- Prone position
1200--Left Sim's position
1600--Right Sim's position
1 Notice that in the preceding sequence, the patient is required to
make only a quarter turn rather than a half turn each time the position is changed.
2 If the patient experiences pain while turning, a quarter turn will
be less painful than a half turn.
