Best practice when using slings:  Correctly measured for that person.  Never share.  Correct type of sling for function:bath,'leave in' etc.  If 'left in' make sure the leg straps are not connected as this becomes a depravation of liberty.  When sling is being washed you must have a spare!  Ensure it is not rubbing and creating skin tears.  Document how/when you use it and how the person copes in care plans. Have a risk assesment.  CQC will check you are following good practice!
