OSKA Hercules Patient Repositioner moves your patient back up the bed at the touch of a button.
When the head of bed (HOB) is elevated, patients slide down the bed, increasing pressure on the sacrum, ITs & heels, leading to an increased risk of pressure ulcer development.
For ventilated patients in ICU, the HOB must remain elevated, making moving them back up the bed virtually impossible. For patients to be quickly & carefully repositioned, the HOB elevation must be lowered to a min. of 30° then returned to the upright position so as not to compromise airway.
For ‘no-touch’ patients, those with delirium, those with stable spinal cord injuries, or heavier/bariatric patients, repositioning back up the bed is also challenging, requiring four or more nurses taking up to thirty minutes1. Despite the support that staff in Critical Care get with 1-2-1 patient care & additional support staff to help with such tasks, it does not eliminate the risk of injury caused by this manual process.
The ongoing requirement to regularly reposition these dependent patients & move them back up the bed is one of the biggest causes of strain, physical stress & injury to nursing staff & care givers.
