How to transfer a patient with one weak/paralysed side from a bed to a chair? None of my books tells about specific chair position, and I can't find anything on the internet either.
My idea is:
1. Put chair parallel to the bed on patient's weak side facing him.
2. Make him sit, dangle legs.
3. Help him balance on his healthy leg and pivot his back towards a chair.
4. Sit into a chair.
I stumbled upon Kaplan test question, it said put chair 90 degree to the bed, stand on affected side. Mosby says stand on strong side.
What the heck? Is there a commonly agreed way to do it?
