The letters informed the consignees of the incident with the patient slipping from the seat of the lift and sustaining fatal injuries and advised them to always ensure that a clinical assessment to verify that the resident has sufficient upper body strength to maintain a steady position on the chair, and that the resident has sufficient mental capacity to adhere to the caregiver's instructions, is carried out by a qualified nurse or therapist before lifting residents with the Ambulift. To further enhance safety, a seat belt is being made available, which must be fitted to the chair, enabling it to be used when required by clinical assessment.
