What are the benefits of the Patient Transfer Scale?
In order to administer certain medication or treatments accurately, a patient needs to be weighed, however with immobile patients this is not easy. Previously, the only solutions were bed weighing scales or hoist scales, both of which can be cumbersome and time consuming. But the Patient Transfer Scale makes weighing a patient at the point they are admitted to hospital easier.
Lateral transfer of a patient from trolley to bed or bed to bed is an already existing – and essential – procedure. Therefore, the Patient Transfer Scale allows you to get a weight reading for these patients without taking up any time.
This helps you to reduce door to needle times and meet targets, and medication or treatment can be administered faster and with confidence by healthcare professionals. It also means less stress for staff, less stress for the patient, and the patient can be weighed with dignity.
