So I work at. Little community hospital and we have our othropods that we know and love. They use our new berchtold bed shoulder positioners with the McConnell arm positioner for anything to do with shoulders.
we have a locum trauma doc that is getting into it with us because we don't have a sheet of plexiglass to put under a supine PT to do an ORIF that way. Says beach chair is crap. He says if I can find a video from an association that is not supine or on a Jackson table (we don't have) then he'll buy me a new car (fingers crossed it's not a hot wheels 😂).
I have found videos of the patients in beach chair but it never shows how the effected sides hand is draped/positioned.
how do YOU position YOUR patients for a proximal humerus ORIF? Cause now I just want to say, "see! Other people do it THIS way- and there is more than one way!" Cause I'm not petty or anything- just looking to expand my horizons
