Getting an accurate weight quickly can help save a life. Weighing a patient during lateral transfer means that no additional time is added to provide the correct patient care. Healthcare professionals can administer drug dosages or medication with maximum confidence and minimum difficulty.
Weighing via lateral transfer is a simple process that does not compromise on patient comfort or dignity. No need for cumbersome hoist scales or time wasted waiting on bed scales – weight is taken at entry point. The result is a better experience for both patients and staff.
The 10-20 minutes it takes to accurately weigh a patient via hoist scale is a detriment to both patient dignity and staff time. The Patient Transfer Scale is easy to transport to multiple departments quickly by a single staff member, therefore saving costs throughout the hospital or care home – particularly Emergency, ICU, HDU, Stroke, Cardiac, Spinal, Renal and X-ray
