Default Re: getting a sling under patient to use hoyer lift

Thanks for your help everyone! We are returning the full body sling with commode hole (we never used it because we couldn't even get it under her) and will request a u sling with head support. It's funny that the guy at the medical store (who apparently seemed like he knew what he was talking about...) said that U Slings HAD to go under the butt and told us it was not a smart idea to get a U Sling as we would probably drop her. Maybe he didn't really know what he was talking about....
