B oth staff and patients benefit when you use stretch- er chairs in the perioperative process. Here are a few rea- sons why. • Efficiency. In short outpa- tient proce- dures such as ophthalmic, ENT, plastic and oral surger- ies, streamlin- ing patient han- dling with con- vertible equip- ment that serves as a pre-op bed, transport stretcher, OR table and PACU reclin- er saves your staff time and energy. • Employee safety. The average healthcare worker isn't getting any younger. The fewer times that patients are lifted and transferred to stretchers, tables or wheelchairs, the lower the risk of on-the-job mus- culoskeletal injuries. VERSATILITY Convertible stretchers serve not only as patient beds, but also as surgical tables and even reclining chairs.
