After you have turned the patient onto their side, place the head in line with the spine.
Support the head and neck with a firm, flat pillow.
Support the back with a pillow and have the patient wrap their arms around another pillow.
Move the upper leg forward until the knee is bent, so it is raised above the lower leg.
Place a pillow under this leg to keep it at hip level.
Slightly bend the lower knee and place a folded towel or blanket, or piece of foam, under it to keep the ankle off the bed.
