Transfer patient from bed to wheelchair with full body repositioning sling and ceiling lift. visit www.medcotech.com for more information
Chloe Sauer's insight:

This is is another device to make it easier for Naree to get her clients in and out of bed.

 

This device is a safe method for both naree and her client as again alot of the time Naree has to work alone and if naree had to manually lift her clients in and out of bed especially if her client was of a larger size and Naree could not handle the strain and dropped her client onto the floor and the client was seriously injured as well as Naree having to figure out how she was going to pick her client up off the floor or seriously injuring herself during the process.

SCHIZOAFFECTIVE DISORDER: THE MOVIE 2013 - YouTube

sharing a bit of the not so nice things about a rare mental health challenge called schzioaffective disorder (a mix of schizophrenia & bi polar disorder or d...
Chloe Sauer's insight:

Naree has to work with mentally ill clients that suffer from Schizophrenia  on a regular basis and this can be a really challenging part of her job that can also be really dangerous due to the clients mental status/thinking during some certain periods of time.

 

This illness can be a problem due to her clients beliving that they do not have a mental illness and refuse to take theire medications.

 

Naree has to deal withn all kinds of different mood swings from her clients that suffer from schizophrenia with the most dangerous of all mood swings the violent ones.

 

As a prevention measure in the houses that the clients live in they have lockable cupbords that sharp items, chemicals (cleaning products) all live in also by all of the carers monitor the medication intake of the clients to make sure they are taking it, the carers even check under the clients tounge and the roof of theire mouth to make sure they have swallowed the medication.

Chloe Sauer's insight:

For Naree who is a support worker for the disabled who has to transport clients by herself on a daily basis this is a much needed device as manually having to lift clients in and out of vehicles can pose great risk to her as well as her client.

 

This could effect Naree due to manual handeling injuring herself or if her client was of a larger size not being able to support them and the client falling onto the ground and being injured but also naree not being able to pick the client up and having to call for help and this would be a big possibility if the work vehicles Naree has to drive did not have van access installed.

Chloe Sauer's insight:

Naree care's for clients that cannot control bowel movements that have wounds to clean and sometimes clients can hurt themselves during Naree's shift at work. Naree alsohas to be careful in  some cases when showering a client or cleaning their teeth.

 

To pose no risk to her she has to use appropriate PPE to ensure that she has no risk of contracting something from her patients due to bodily fluids.

Showering and Transferring - YouTube

Instructions and demonstration by a healthcare professional for safe and proper showering, bathing, and transferring of dementia patients.
Chloe Sauer's insight:

Naree has to showere/bath her clients on a regular basis due to some clients needing constant care, This can be a day shift or a night shift for Naree.

 

Having chairs and hand rails installed in theire showers/baths is a great idea due to being safe for both Naree and her client as well as making it comftable for them both.

 

This is also great for hygine with Naree being able to wash her client properly by having both of her hands free and not having to rush due to herself or her client being uncomftable.

 

 And by having being able to cover the client up while washing this makes Naree's client fell a lot mor comftable and making them feel like their dignity has not been completly taken away from them.
