The issue about reasons to continue repositioning have been answered by others. But I also wanted to comment on what you said about shutting the Clinitron off and then repositioning.
If you need to have the Clinitron off temporarily for a procedure or treatment, you should position the patient first and then shut the Clinitron off. By doing this, the patient's weight will be distributed evenly and pressure in any specific area will be minimized. If you shut the bed off and then repositioon, you will not only subject the skin to shearing but there will be areas of higher skin pressure because the patient won't be lying in his own "print". Hope this is clear.
What ever happened to FNANA, Foot Nurse Alliance of North America?
