Hoyer Lift http://www.metacafe.com/watch/yt- EP2myQVns9s/transfer_a_patient_from_bed_to_wheelchair_using_a_hoyer_lift/ http://www.metacafe.com/watch/yt- EP2myQVns9s/transfer_a_patient_from_bed_to_wheelchair_using_a_hoyer_lift/ A Hoyer lift is a device used to transfer pt’s more easily in and out of a bed. You lay a pad under the pt that has places to hook the Hoyer lift to. You then attach the lift to the pad and open the legs for support. All you do is hit a button and make sure the bar doesn’t hurt the pt. You then lower them into the wheel chair and unhook the Hoyer from the pad. You then roll the pad and tuck it between the pt and the wheelchair.
