How to Use Patient Lift to Transferring to a Bathing Unit?

Time:2017-10-23   Source:Nice Healthcare


The patient should be elevated high enough to clear the bed and be able to slide the portable bath tub under the patient.
Lower the patient into the portable bath tub.
Detach the sling from the swivel bar hooks and attach the portable bath tub straps to the patient lift.
Using the lift, raise the sides of the portable bath tub.
Bathe the patient.
Reverse the procedures to return the patient to bed.



-WARNING-

When the sling is elevated a few inches off the surface of the bed and before moving the patient, check to make sure that the sling is properly connected to the hooks on the cradle of the patient lift. If any attachments are NOT properly in place, lower the patient back onto the stationary surface and correct this problem - otherwise, injury or damage may occur.
Adjustments for safety and comfort should be made before moving the patient. The patient's arms should be inside the straps.
It is recommend that the rear casters be left unlocked during lifting procedures to allow the patient lift to stabilize itself when the patient is initially lifted from a chair, bed or any stationary object.
It is recommended that the sling remain connected to the swivel bar hooks during the patient’s use of either the commode chair or standard commode.
The legs of the lift must be in the maximum open position and the patient lift handle locked in place for optimum stability and safety.
If it is necessary to close the legs of the patient lift to maneuver the hoyer lift under a bed, close the legs of the patient 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 patient lift are no longer under the bed, return the legs of the lift to the maximum open position and lock the shifter handle immediately.
The slings with commode openings are designed to be used with either a commode chair or standard commode.
NOTE: Patient lifts are NOT intended as a transport device. Moving a person suspended in a sling over any distance is NOT recommended. If the bathroom facilities are NOT near the bed or if the patient lift cannot be easily maneuvered towards the commode, then the patient MUST be transferred to a wheelchair and transported to the bathroom facilities before using the patient lift again to position the patient on a standard commode.

NOTE: Before transferring the patient, the patient lift should be guided to the bathroom to check that it can be easily maneuvered towards the commode.
