Sliding transfer board
Using a sliding transfer board can be a helpful tool in patient transfer. These types of transfers are ideal for patients with lower extremity amputation or quadriplegia. In order to use this type of transfer, the caregivers must be able to grasp the sheet with their palms facing upward. This allows for less friction between the patient and the board.
During the transfer, one caregiver should be at the head of the bed. The other should be at the foot of the bed. The provider at the foot of the bed will lift the patient’s head, shoulders, and feet. This weight shift minimizes the amount of effort required to move the patient, thereby avoiding back injuries to the health care providers.
