Question 3 of 33
Please explain in detail how you would appropriately transfer a patient from a bed to a wheelchair.
Professional Answers Preview
"I have performed this task several hundred times in my career as a Home Health Aide. In order to properly, and safely, transfer a patient from a bed to a wheelchair, you must place the patient's outside leg between your knees for support. Bend your knees and keep your back straight. Count to three and slowly stand up. Use your legs to lift. At the same time, the patient should place their hands by their sides and help push off the bed. The patient should help support their weight on their good leg during the transfer. Pivot towards the wheelchair, moving your feet so your back is aligned with your hips.Once the patient's legs are touching the seat of the wheelchair, bend your knees to lower the patient into the seat. At the same time, ask the patient to reach for the wheelchair armrest."
As a Home Health Aide, you will be required to transfer patients from a bed to a wheelchair quite often. Assure the interviewer that you are capable of doing so. Describe the steps that you would take and also talk about your level of experience with this type of task.

]I always try to exceed the expectations of both my employer and the clients. It's the best way how to make the clients satisfied, as well as it helps me feel the personal satisfaction from doing my job. For example, I had two clients that had Cerebral Palsy (CP) and a daughter age 7, they were raising on their own. So it was difficult finding other Home health aides to fulfill their needs. So for six months, I stayed at their home with them and gave them 24 hour care, which after my regular paid hours. I volunteered. So, that they didn't have to worry and that they could remain independently in their homes until they found extra help. But I still today don't see it as I was going above and beyond my job. If I had to do it again today, I would in a minute.
