Before You Throw: Green Repositioning Sheets Don’t Go

A properly stocked linen cart is shown on the left. A properly discarded green repositioning sheet in the blue laundry bag is shown on the right. 

Did you know green repositioning sheets and black handy tubes can be washed and reused?

Before a patient leaves a room or is transferred to an ambulance or to the morgue, remove green repositioning sheets and place them in the blue laundry bag for cleaning rather than throwing them out.

By properly disposing of these soiled sheets, the medical center can clean and reuse them, saving the organization $150 per linen.

For more information, contact a member of the Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) team.
