      Do you weight test the patient slings and belts (Sara Plus) or do you just have a visual check and how often is this check done? Who performs the checks?
      How is the data recorded?
      Many thanks,
      Angela

      Hi, We teach to do a visual check before each use.
      Annually it is checked by the Safe Handling Champion – they have an equipment list sheet that they fill in, documenting the condition of the items.
      We don’t weigh test anything.
      Hope this helps.
      Julie
