Hoisting Errors

The procedures and protocols implemented for the use of hoists must be of the highest standard to ensure that the risk of accidents is kept to an absolute minimum. However, instances may arise where there has been a failure to maintain the safety and quality of a hoist and errors with technique.

Types of Hoisting Errors & Mismanagement

Using a hoist to move a patient or a loved one can be a hazardous manoeuvre for both nurses and patients. Errors may however arise causing further detriment to a patient or loved ones health. Such errors may include:

  • Failure to repair or maintain hoists
  • A failure to dispose of defective hoists
  • Where a medical professional fails to ensure the degree of weight for each hoist is not exceeded when moving a patient
  • Errors in ensuring slings are correctly fitted
  • And other hoisting errors which may occur

If you or a loved one has been affected by a hoisting error which has prolonged or exacerbated a medical condition, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
