Benefits of the Morphemat
“There is broad consensus that all intensive care patients should be moved regularly from their back to their sides, and two hourly positioning has been suggested as a routine standard of care.”
“Repositioning supine patients is most frequent patient handling and is associated with high rates of musculoskeletal disorders”
“Routine patient positioning in the ICU prophylactically promotes comfort, prevents pressure ulcer formation and may reduce the incidence of deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary emboli, atelectasis and pneumonia. Routine positioning usually involves moving the patient between right and left lateral positions.”
“In intensive care units, compliance to turning protocols ranges from 38 to 51%. Potential explanations for this include sub-optimal caregiver staffing ratios.”
