Development of a Screening Tool for Safe Wheelchair Seating( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Most elderly nursing home residents who need wheelchairs are not being assessed individually to ensure proper prescription for safe and effective mobility. This study evaluated the use of a new screening tool, the Resident Ergonomic Assessment Profile for Seating (REAPS). Methods: This descriptive study design examined the reliability and validity of the REAPS in a Veterans nursing home. Fifty subjects (mean age = 78) were screened by four raters and an independent criterion expert. Test-retest reliability was performed on 18 subjects. Other measures included resident discomfort, mobility, and posture. Results: Although interrater agreement varied according to the items on the REAPS, ratings suggested reasonable agreement among various raters and the seating expert, and moderate overall sensitivity. REAPS scores provided by the raters were positively correlated with expert opinion, as well as performance measures of mobility and head angle. Conclusions: The REAPS is intended to serve as a brief, easily administered screen to identify individuals in need of formal wheelchair seating evaluation. The results of this study suggest that, pending minor revisions, nursing home staff members with minimal instruction can use this tool to conduct this type of screening. Future development and research is warranted to explore the efficacy of the REAPS across long-term care settings in both VA and community facilities

The program involved an ergonomic assessment protocol, patient handling technology, decision algorithms to select equipment, and guidelines for safe patient handling. Method: An 18-month observational study measured the incidence and severity of injury to caregivers before and after the introduction of the Safe Patient Handling and Movement project. Results and conclusion: This program aided both patients and nursing personnel (registered nurses, licensed practitioner nurses, and nursing assistants). Incidence and severity of injuries to health care workers decreased, and there was general satisfaction with use of equipment by patients and patient handlers. the intervention also was cost effective. A cost-benefit analysis showed that net benefits from lowered incidence and severity of injuries and decreased workers' compensation claims was $200,000 per year. The payback period of the initial investment in patient handling equipment was 4.30 years. Policy implications are discussed
