Turtle Shield

It is no longer necessary to use a mattress as a shield during a crisis intervention. The Turtle-Shield® is a safer and quicker alternative for protection. If you have defiant, assaultive and aggressive patients, you will appreciate the higher level of safety that the Turtle-Shield® will bring to your facility. It takes an incredible amount of time, energy, and risk to safely secure a combative patient with an improper tool. Injuries from patient violence to nursing staff are more frequent than injuries to workers in "high risk" industries such as construction or mining.
