anybody know what the requirements are for the use of an e-z stand vs a hoyer or e-z lift.
im being told that you have to be able to sit on the side of the bed independently and be able to hold on to the "u" shaped bar. other wise the e-z stand would not be a safe transfer.
anybody know the answer?
Can you obtain a PT consult to determine what is appropriate? That's what we can do at out LTC if we have any concerns for resident/staff safety...and we care plan the appropriate action-each unit also has a "cheat sheet" that we all must keep updated so everyone knows how each resident must be transferred.We still have the occassioanl problems-nothing seems to be fool proof...
Same here! consult therapy.
They have to be weight bearing to use the e-z stand. Consult with therapy but they should tell you the same thing. And you still need 2 people to do the transfer.
