Emergency Room

Aid in Safely Moving and Lifting Patients

Emergency department nurses need to act quickly in high pressure situations by rapidly assessing patient needs, and working with patients and families in crisis. Along with being a highly emotional job, it’s also a physically demanding one. Since many patients get moved to a different unit after being assessed, ER nurses are expected to transfer patients onto other surfaces like imaging tables, Med-Surg beds and OR tables.

Both the HoverMatt® Single-Patient Use and HoverSling® Repositioning Sheet help to reduce the risk of injury to the staff and patients during transfers, boosting and turning. The elevated evaporative properties of the breathable HoverMatt SPU help to maintain the ideal microclimate, making it safe to leave under patients for all-day care. In addition, the HoverMatt SPU is radiolucent, so it can remain under patients in diagnostic environments.

Patient and visitor falls are common in the Emergency Department. The HoverJack® Air Patient Lift allows caregivers to safely lift fallen individuals without gathering a lift team. After the individual has been lifted using the HoverJack, the HoverMatt can be used to laterally transfer them to a bed or stretcher.

In emergency situations, the AirWedge Adjustable Positioning Device makes it easy to achieve ear-to-sternal notch positioning, and is fully adjustable to accommodate most patients.
