Standard procedures for transfers are frequently modified to allow the patient to safely move from one surface or position to another, especially in an assisted living facility. One resident, had recently undergone a right total hip replacement, and was still under standard hip precautions. Additionally, she had a history of repeated fractures to her right wrist, which limited her overall range and strength in that extremity. When assessing her limitations, we decided a dependent transfer would have to be modified to a two-person dependent transfer, allowing us to adhere to present hip precautions, as well as to compensating for the decreased strength in her right upper extremity.

This model emphasizes the “TR assists persons to recover following threats to health and to achieve as high a level of health as possible” (Shank & Coyle, 2002, p.56). The initiative to increase opportunities for residents to ambulate on the unit better will in yield an outcome of stronger muscles. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention list several reasons why “physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health” (The Benefits of Physical Activity, 2015).
