Wheelchair to Bed

Transferring a Resident from a Wheelchair to a Bed

Step 2 Place the chair parallel to or at a 45-degree angle to the bed.
Step 3 * Lock the wheels of the wheelchair
Step 4 Remove the resident’s feet from the footrests. Remove or lift foot rests out of the way. Remove lap blanket.
Step 5 * Adjust bed to lowest position, lock bed wheels, and raise head of bed to Fowler’s or sitting position.
Step 6 Fanfold top linens to the foot of bed.
Step 7 Observe resident is wearing non-skid footwear. Stand in front of the resident. Apply transfer belt. (must be tight – a flat hand should slide snug between belt and body)
Step 8 Ask the resident to hold onto the armrests and lean forward. Grasp the transfer belt at each side.
Step 9 Position your feet and legs to provide stability for the resident and prevent the resident from falling or sliding.
Step 10 Ask the resident to push down on the armrests on the count of three. Pull resident into a standing position as you straighten your knees.
Step 11 Support the resident in the standing position.
Step 12 Turn the resident so they can reach the edge of the mattress. The back of the resident’s legs should touch the mattress.
Step 13 Continue to turn the resident until they can reach the mattress with both hands.
Step 14 Lower the resident onto the bed as you bend your hips and knees. The resident assists by leaning forward and bending the elbows and knees.
Step 15 Remove the transfer belt and footwear.
