When the individual is heavy and cannot help you him/herself.
The individual suffers from sores or similar skin conditions.
Generally, 2 people are needed to move an individual in bed to prevent undue strain on the carer or pressure on the individual.

First assess the situation and what movement you seek. You must ask the questions such as can the individual weight bare and use equipment such as a Zimmer frame or stand aid? Does the movement require the use of two carers and equipment such as a hoist? You must never move a person by yourself or drag them. If the individual suffers from sores or similar skin conditions it could tear the skin, therefore the slide sheet will be needed to move an individual in bed to prevent undue strain on the carer or pressure on the individual.
