1 patient evaluation for Invacare Hoyer type hoist

Jan 25, 2010 (Started Nov 14, 2009)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for falls)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 5 other All the time (24/7)
Advice & Tips: This is easy for the patient, but takes a bit of time and practice for the caregiver to learn how to use... and how to get the sling well positioned. For that reason, it cannot be done quickly, which is sometimes hard for me. I'm able to help my caregivers by getting into an easier placement on the bed. I can sit on the edge, hold onto the rails and help. Eventually I will be lying down, but they'll be able to get the sling in position. It will just take longer. This type of (floor) lift takes up space wherever it is kept.
