A new high-tech piece of equipment at SunPorch of Dodge City is providing increased safety and a more comfortable experience for elders and staff members.
SunPorch became eligible to receive the Raizer lift chair because of its active participation in the Southwest Healthcare Emergency Resource Team and Healthcare Coalition. The SHERT HCC is a coalition of healthcare and emergency response personnel who focus on All-Hazards Emergency Preparedness.
The long-term-care residence at 501 W. Beeson Road, is training nurses and other staff on the Raizer’s proper use.
“The lift chair is sturdy and extremely easy to assemble and operate,” said Michala Abney, licensed practical nurse and human resources director. “The Raizer can be used even in small spaces.”
