    HOIST SLING SLIPPAGE

    MY PARTNER IS ABOVE KNEE LEFT LEG AMPUTEE, SINCE DECEMBER, AND HE IS BEING HOISTED IN AND OUT OF BED BY HOIST, HAMMOCK STYLE, INTO HIS WHEELCHAIR. ONCE OUT OF BED, HE SLIPS DOWN IN THE CHAIR. WHEN GETTING HIM BACK INTO BED, THE SLING OFTEN SLIPS FROM UNDER HIM. LAST NIGHT, HAD TO PHONE 111 AND REQUSTED AMBULANCE COZ HE WAS LITERALLY ALMOST SLID OFF WHEELCHAIR IN HOIST. LUCKILY MY NEIGHBOUR WHO IS A NURSE CAME OVER AND PULLED HIS JOGGERS FROM BEHIND AND RIGHTED HIM. HE IS LEFT SIDE PARALYSED FROM A STROKE AND IN SEVERE PAIN FROM ARTHRITIS. NOW HE DOESNT WANT TO GET OUT OF BED COZ HES SCARED...AND SO AM I! CAN ANYONE HELP US PLEASE
