    Lift assist devices … back saving tools from God, or waste of time, space, money, and a pain in the butt to use?


    Depends on the resident. I use the lift devices whenever possible. Have a few residents that i think the lifts are over-kill on as long as you have 2 cna’s lifting, the lift isn’t necessary. Others I wouldn’t dream of getting them up without using the appropriate lift. It’s easier on the resident and the cna to use the lift May take a little longer but the resident is less likely to get injured,

    I have been a CNA for over 30 years and have more back pain than I should at my age because when I started out we didn’t have lift devices. If you had a 300 # person you got some other people and just lifted them. I say if you have the lifts use them. Young people tend to think that because you CAN lift you should (I was one) but believe me it catches up to you later on!
