Past Home Health Care Aide

Repeated use of Hoyer lift use.

I worked for many years using a manual hoyer lift on low pile carpeting.

I now have years of pain because of it. Stress fractures from the pulling and pushing on carpeting at small distances doing tight turns etc.

They should only be used on hard flooring like wood, linoleum, etc. Save your feet please.

Prevent future pain of your staff and you or loved ones.

Thank you.
