How to Use Patient Lift to Transfer to Bed?

Time:2017-10-23   Source:Nice Healthcare


Raise lift until patient’s buttocks are above the surface of the bed. You may need to lower the bed height. If patient cannot be lifted above the bed, DO NOT push or pull the patient. This can result in a tip over and serious injury to the patient and caregiver.
Move Patient lift so that the open end of the base is as far under the bed as possible.
After patient has been centered over the bed, rotate the patient so that he/she face the foot of the bed.
Carefully lower the patient onto bed.
Remove straps or chains from sling.

NOTE: If patient needs support and is in a hospital bed raise side rails and have patient hold onto them. Raise the bed to the highest position before moving the patient onto the sling. This will reduce strain on the caregiver's back. Also, when the patient is prepared to be lifted, lower the side rail and level of the bed back down, decreasing the distance the patient has to be elevated.

NOTE: If it is necessary to close the legs of the lift to maneuver the lift under a bed, close the legs of the lift only as long as it takes to position the lift over the patient and lift the patient off the surface of the bed. When the legs of the lift are no longer under the bed, return the legs of the lift to the maximum open position and lock the shifter handle immediately.

To reduce the risk of tipping over, spread the adjustable base legs to their widest position before lifting anyone.

Beware of obstructions under the bed that can cause the patient lift wheels to stop and the patient lift to tip over.

DO NOT engage the rear locking casters when patient is in the patient lift.

DO NOT roll the caster base over objects such as shag or deep pile carpeting, raised carpet bindings, thresholds, unpaved surfaces, outdoors, or any other obstructions that would create an imbalance of the patient lift. This could cause the patient lift to tip over.
