    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.
