    I once had a hoyer snap in the air with a patient in it, luckily they were still over the bed so nobody got hurt! I’m curious, does anybody have any horror stories about using a hoyer or a even sit to stand machine?

    We had an aide “bump” a patient’s leg against a wall while she was up in the hoyer. It broke her femur in half…

    I had two CNA’s that we’re getting a resident out of the whirlpool, they didn’t hook the straps up right and she flipped out of the hoyer, landed on her neck. Needless to say her neck was fractured in several places.
