The Bosun Chair Hoist Sling is simple to fit and remove
The Bosuns chair hoist sling is good with toileting and has hygienic access. It saves two unnecessary lifts to put a patient on a bed to undress and dress them. It can also be left behind the patient without adverse pressure problems, but as it is such an easy Sling to put on and remove, most Carers will remove the Sling rather than leave it behind a patient.
The Bosuns Chair Hoist Sling can pick up from the floor or bed. However, as it does not have a head section, a Carer should support the patient’s head until they have been lifted into the sitting position. Webbing handles are provided at the back of the Sling to help guide patients into chairs.
However, as the patient is already in a good sitting position, they could be lowered directly into a chair. This is particularly helpful if the chair has positioning inserts.
