Thanks for the update.  Alan has some good advice.  My MIL is a pretty big woman and she has been using a hospital bed for year but just replaced it with craftmatic bed.  I hope she continues to recover and her strength returns soon.

Hope she makes a speedy full recovery.

 

 

I have made changes to the bed so I can move her back and forth.

 

 

You put an engine on her bed?

No we have one of those really tall mattresses, I had it sitting on the floor so it would tall enough, but the hoyer lift wouldn't slid underneath, so I removed the foundation and used blocks and plywood to hold it up.

I think the hospital bed will help, especially being able to change the position she is in. Praying for a speedy recovery, Pat!

She is much better today, she is almost able to transfer without help. I'm still going to keep her in the hospital bed for a few days.

You may find that the hospital bed is so nice that you keep it. My wife has bad days where the only place she is comfortable is in the hospital bed. Good Luck, Rick
