How safe is it to use a posey bed for a hip fracture before surgery? You can't get the person in there without ending up hurting them. That tiny window? Doesn't work when the guy is six foot or taller. Even with angling, the guy still ended up in pain.
This is the posey bed they used:

don't know much about the guy. I was just helping to transfer him but he did have a painful hip fracture. There seems like it would have to have some way to unzip the bed farther to get him in like a normal transfer.
It does not seem safe.
