If a resident cannot stand how do you transfer them from wheelchair to toilet? Here is the setup. I walk into the bathroom and the sink and toilet are on the left hand side, and there is a grab bar on the back wall. I know how to transfer a resident who can stand but what if they cannot?
I will tell you what doesn't work. I pushed the chair straight through the door to the back wall. I was behind the resident who was in the chair facing the grab bar and the toilet was to our left. That would be perfect if she could stand and hold onto the bar, then I would simply roll the chair back out of the way and pivot her onto the toilet. Unfortunately, I found myself behind the wheelchair of a resident who could not stand. Help!
