A glide sheet is used to reduce any friction and tension during the moving or repositioning of a patient to a surface. Thus, sliding sheets comfortably move those with mobility issues.
Above all, it is vital that the patient is comfortable and their dignity is preserved. Also, it is important to keep the users safe from injury.
