Transporting bariatric patients requires extra muscle. You also need a litter that will handle the patient once theyÌre in the ambulance. Making it easy for the available manpower to get the patient onto the bariatric litter can be an issue. TheBariatric Transfer Sheet fromR & B Fabrications is a double-layer nylon reinforced vinyl that is impervious to body fluids. Ten heavy-duty handholds make it easier to move a large patient. The nylon webbing crosses in the middle of the sheet, providing additional strength where the patientÌs weight pools.
