- by juniper111 Jan 31Would you consider a patient that cannot transfer out of bed on their own to be bedfast? For example if they required assistance transferring to a chair.

- Feb 2 by Oskie06If patient could bear wait and pivot with transfer they are chair fast. If they need complete assistance to transfer, they are bed bound
- Feb 5 by HmarieDPer OASIS guidelines, if a patient can tolerate being up in a chair, even if they must be transferred via hoyer lift, they are chairfast.
