I'm training to be a CNA in LTC. Today, we were taught how to use a sling lift (Hoyer?), and a "sit-to-stand" lift, which involved a different sort of sling - it went under the arms, had a belt around the waist, and had straps between the legs. It was very
uncomfortable - the edge and straps of the sling cut in under my arms and knees. I am curious if there is an ersatz method of padding those areas when transferring residents with this lift - if it was uncomfortable on my young, well-padded skin, it must be awful on a fragile elderly person.
