Patient Transfer Scale – A Case Study in Efficiency and Effectiveness

Currently, hospitals are challenged to quickly and accurately measure a stroke patient's weight, as the patient is often immobile and the weight is used to dose life-saving medication. Weighing beds are often used in these cases to weigh a patient prior to a CT Scan but present multiple problems: unavailable, inaccurate, not zeroed and add additional transfers.

Learn more about how two hospitals introduced the Patient Transfer Scale into their stroke protocol and were able to decrease the number of patient transfers improving both patient and clinician safety.
