We have found a huge difference using the Patient Transfer Scale. In our area of work the patient weight is extremely important as the treatments we provide in acute stroke are weight dependent.

We used to have to hoist patients to get their weight which is obviously time consuming. Time...

Most patients need to be pat slided on admission and admission scores recorded so it is easier to remember to do and use. They don’t really want to have to estimate weights.

Using the Patient Transfer Scale means that nutrition and drug calculations are much more accurate.

    What is the Patient Transfer Scale?

    The Patient Transfer Scale is a revolutionary way to weigh time critical or immobile patients in seconds. It is a transfer slide with in-built weighing scale, and means patients can be weighed during lateral transfer from trolley to bed, or bed to bed.

    In 2021, the Patient Transfer Scale was awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation – a highly sought after, prestigious award, which is the highest official accolade that a British business can be given.

    What are the benefits of the Patient Transfer Scale?

    Weighing a patient at the point they are admitted to hospital is made easier with the Patient Transfer Scale. In order to administer medication or treatment accurately, the patient needs to be weighed. However, with immobile patients this is not easy, with the only solutions being bed weighing scales or hoist scales, both of which can be cumbersome and time consuming.

    Lateral transfer of a patient from trolley to bed or bed to bed is an already existing - and essential - procedure. Therefore, the Patient Transfer Scale allows you to get a weight reading for these patients without taking up any time.

    This helps you to reduce door to needle times and meet targets, and medication or treatment can be administered faster and with confidence by healthcare professionals. It also means less stress for staff, less stress for the patient, and the patient can be weighed with dignity.

    Why do you need an accurate weight for patients?

    A patient’s weight can be critical to delivering the right care and treatment at the right time. Getting a weight reading is particularly important when medication or treatment needs to be administered fast; however, in many cases it is not easy to weigh the patient.

    The more accurate the weight reading, the more accurate the drug dosage and the more effectively the patient can be treated. The Patient Transfer Scale means that weight readings never need to be estimated again - so better patient care and patient outcomes.

    Gaining an accurate weight for a patient is required as part of the five MUST (Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool) steps, to identify adults who are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition.

    How is the Patient Transfer Scale used?

    The Patient Transfer Scale, or PTS, can be used in the same way as a transfer board. Simply place the PTS across the trolley and bed, and move your patient across in line with your manual handling/patient transfer policies. You’ll just need to stop for 3-4 seconds as they pass over the PTS in order for the weight reading to register.

    The Hold function can be used if required to stabilise the weight reading on the display. Watch the video above to see the PTS in action.
